Chaffinches Visit the English Institute of Sport

The children of Chaffinches’ class went to the English Institute of Sport, Sheffield on Friday 11th March. We have been learning about keeping a healthy body and we wanted to try out lots of different sports that they have in the Olympics. We represented Jamaica.

The sports we tried were long jump, parachute games, high jump, relay, sprint, egg and spoon race, hurdles and aerobics. My favourite event was the parachute games because we worked as a team and I liked going under the parachute.

My favourite event was the relay race because we ran around the whole track and we could run as fast as we wanted.

Oscar Gilbert

My favourite event was the sprint to find the fastest boy and girl because it was very competitive and hard. There were a lot of events to do – it was breath-taking.

Albie Smith

We were very lucky because, as we were pushing ourselves to the limit, Jessica Ennis-Hill was practising her hurdles on a track at the side of the main track.


We  had a really enjoyable day, although we were exhausted.
