Athletics

Virtual Athletics Competition - Autumn 2020

During the Autumn term, all children took part in a virtual athletics competition within their PE lessons, where they completed a range of activities such as speed bounce, shuttle runs, long jump, T runs and chest push. We collated the results and sent them to the Gedling School Games Organiser. We used this as an opportunity for the children to reach their personal best, compete as a class and compete as a school. The results were fantastic and every child displayed excellent teamwork and determination. We recently found out that we came 1st out of the Gedling schools for participation and 2nd for our results. A wonderful achievement! A special well done to 4Red, who won the intra-school competition.

Y5/6 County Athletics Finals - February 2020

On Friday 7th February, 23 children from Arno Vale represented Gedling at the Nottinghamshire Winter Games (Sports Hall Athletics).  The team performed exceptionally finishing in fifth place. This is the third year that we have made the top five out of over 200 schools across Nottinghamshire. The children behaved admirably and should be extremely proud of themselves. 

 

A massive well done to our fantastic year 5/6 athletics team, who represented Arno Vale brilliantly last week and finished first in the Gedling finals. We are looking forward to seeing how this team get on at the County Finals next week.

Y4 Athletics County Final - May 2019

Having won the Gedling District Y4 Athletics Competition at Arnold Hill before Easter, our team qualified for another County Final.  This took place on 7th May at Harvey Hadden.  We finished as the fifth best team in Nottinghamshire.  Another great achievement for our young athletes!

On Friday 15th February, 22 children from Arno Vale represented Gedling at the Nottinghamshire Winter Games (Sportshall Athletics).  After a brilliant yet tough day of competing in a range of track and field events, the team were awarded silver medals, meaning they are the second best team in the whole of Nottinghamshire. This is the second year that we have now made the top two, which is such an amazing achievement. The team behaved admirably and demonstrated all of the Olympic and Paralympic values throughout the afternoon (respect, excellence, friendship, determination, courage, equality and inspiration).

Each of the students should be extremely proud of themselves. 

Bring on next year!
