Athletics festival for young sports starsPosted: 14th May 2019
Young sports stars competed against themselves to improve their health and ambitions.
Year 1 and 2 pupils from Magna Carta Primary Academy took part in the Athletics Festival with other local schools.
The school uses its PE and Sport Premium funding to subscribe to the Uttlesford School Sports Partnership (USSP).
The membership gives pupils the opportunity to take part in various sports tournaments throughout the year.
Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “Pupils were running, jumping and throwing; but the only competition was against themselves.
“This was a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to take part in an event with lots of other children. One of our curriculum drivers is Enterprise and Aspiration; our curriculum is not just about English and maths. Every subject matters and if events like this inspire just one child to excel in a career in sport, it is worth it.
“We also hope events like this inspire children to lead healthier, more active lifestyles.”
