Athletics day



On Tuesday, Kauri and Puriri team had Athletics day.
We walked to Love lock track in Sandringham road. Love lock track is next  Weasly Community center.
We had high jump, long jump, shot put, discus and track events. For the track events there were 800 meters, 400 meters, 200 meters and 100 meters.
The girls did the track events first and the boys did the other activities.
First, the girls had to run the 800 meters. It's optional to run this round. 800 meters is twice around the track and it is very tiring.
After 800 meters, the girls did 100 meters. 100 meters isn't optional, you had to run it.
After that it was the 200 meters which is about 1/4 of the track.
Last of all there was 400 meters. Only year 6 got to do it and you choose whether to do it or not.

I came 1st in 800 meter and 400 meters. I also came 2nd in 200 meters.
When the girls  finished running the track, we switched so the boys were running in the track events and the girls were doing the other events.
The first activity the year 6 went to after the track events was long jump then shot put, high jump and discus.
I got 3rd in long jump and second in shot put.

Here are some pictures of Athletics day:








I really enjoyed Athletics day.
My favorite event was running 800 meters.

Blog ya later!

  3. Hi there, Claire! My name is Leo. I am in Room 23 and my teacher is Mrs O'Shea.
    I enjoyed reading about a recount in your view of athletics day. It reminded me of the great day I had competing in all those events. Event though I only got to go the Eden/Albert competition for one of them.
    Are you hyped for the inter schools? Cause I am!

    1. Hello Claire,
      It's your sister o_o I totally agree, but if I came 3rd in every field event, I might of been able to go to the inter school competition.

    2. Hi Alodia, I think that not getting into the Eden/Albert is not that bad, you still have a chance next year.
