Emmaville Primary School

Year 5 Fitness Festival

9th October 2019

On Wednesday, the Year 5 children spent a morning sprinting, catching and throwing, and playing games at Fitness Festival held at Thorp Academy.  The children rotated around twelve activities, devised and run by the Year 12 and 13 student Sports Leaders, which were designed to improve a range of qualities, including speed, agility, balance and collaboration. 
Although the activities were non-competitive, the children were all encouraged to develop resilience and determination, with a target to beat their personal best in each event.  As you can see, it was great fun, and there were some fantastic examples of teamwork during the morning.
