Sportshall Athletics Competition

On Wednesday 11th May, Miss Pirie and Mr Ware took a group of Year 3 and 4 children to take part in a Sports Hall Athletics competition at Herne Bay High.
The event included a range of activities such as hurdles, obstacle races and speed bounce. The children tried extremely hard in all of their events, even winning a few! After all children taking part in two track events and two field events each, the scores were added up and Herne Bay Juniors came a respectable 6th out of 15 other local schools!
