PSSP Athletics 2019

On Thursday 20th June we held our annual Plymouth School Sports Partnership Primary Athletics competition at Brickfields. With lots of schools in attendance, there were nearly 1000 competitors on the day.

After some rain in the morning the weather cleared up a bit in the afternoon. There were a mixture of track and field events for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 children that included:

  • Vertical Jump (Yr5/6)
  • Long Jump (Yr 5/6)
  • Vortex Throw (Yr 5/6)
  • 60m (Yr 3)
  • 70m (Yr 4)
  • 80m (Yr 5)
  • 90m (Yr 6)
  • 200m (Mixed)
  • 4 x 60m Relay (Yr 3/4 )
  • 5 x 80m Relay (Yr 5/6 )

The day began with teachers pitching their gazebos to get the best spots near the track whilst PSSP staff set up the events for the day. Once the children had arrived they did a parade around the track supporting their school before the events started.

These events were competed for by both girls and boys. Schools were split into Minor, Intermediate and Major categories depending on the number of children on roll in Key Stage 2.

There were many heats for every track event for girls and boys, before the finals even took place making it a very busy time for the marshals, timekeepers and race starters.  The top two from each heat would progress to the track finals later that day.

On the day the athletes also had the opportunity to take part in the Shine Awards which is a separate set of challenges to test skills and ability. Certificates were awarded by City College leaders.

Congratulations to everyone who took part, especially the winning participants and teams, attached are the final results from the day.

A huge thank you to the participants, teachers and parents who supported the event and a huge special thankyou to the young leaders who helped with everything throughout the day from Eggbuckland CC, Notre Dame, Stoke Damerel CC and Plymstock School.
