Athletics training at Testwood


Last week, eight pupils from Year 6 were given the exciting opportunity to travel to Testwood and train in their sports hall in preparation for this week’s Sportshall Athletics league. Given access to the equipment and expert coaching, the pupils had a go at practising the throws, jumps and sprints that they shall participate in when they compete against other schools.
As well as shot put, standing long jump and speed bounce, they had a chance to hone their skills at sprints; they had to use special kick-boards that they bounced off in order to maximise speed and acceleration when completing ‘laps’ of the hall.
Good luck guys – do yourselves and Calmore proud!
