1 x Year 3 girl – 200m


1 x Year 3 girl – High Jump


1 x Year 3 girl – Long Jump


1 x Year 3 girl – Shot Put


1 x Year 3 girl – Discus


In some cases this may be the same person across several events.


We will keep in our school bubbles at the beginning of the day and each school will social distance as they wait for the events which will rotate as we have in the past, e.g year 3/4 girls, year 3/4 boys, year 5/6 girls, year 5/6 boys, year 7/8 girls & year 7/8 boys).


The final group representing our school will be selected by Monday 1st November and parents will be notified.
