We arrived at the sports park. Ready to run 500 miles and 500 more. The first event the year 5 boys had to do was the 200M sprint. The only people I knew in the race was Ben. ‘Ready, Set, go!’ Mr Cottrell yells. I headed full speed down the track. I looked beside me and there was Ben! We battled and Battled for 2nd to last, fortunately he ran on a rock so he slowed down and I got 2nd to last!
The next event was long jump. I love long jump. There was a massive line and I was near the middle. ‘My turn, yes!’ I take a really big run-up and jump! I got a 2 for that event.
Then the 50M hurdles was up next. I sucked at it. Well I didn’t knock over any hurdles but I was bad at it. Then It was Morning Tea/ Lunch time. I had my chips and sandvich. Then the next event was 100M sprint.
I got into the Semi-finals but lost it so because I was facing all the fast kids but I came 5th. So I got a 2 for the event.
Next was Softball through. I only got one through because other people were taking the balls but I threw the ball and got 2 points for the event.
The final event was the High jump. I got over the bar the first time but Mr Ford said that I should go over to the other matt. I didn’t get a mark for the event.
I score over all was 9 so I did good but not great. But I tried my best.
Reflection for Athletics
Something I was pleased with was how far I got in long jump because I not that great at jumping but I am now!
I really enjoyed learning how to do high jump because it is actually quite fun.
Something I found hard was the 800M run because I thought I wouldn’t lose my breath but I did.
Something that made me think was how I would jump on the long jump because I would have to think which tactic is the best.
