The Athletics Club at Carlton is run by Miss McDonnell in the Autumn and Spring terms and anyone in Years 5 and 6 can attend. We practice all the athletics disciplines of track and field. We build up our stamina through running games and relay races and aim to improve our jumping through both long and triple jump. The children also practice and improve their throwing prowess using javelin and discuss. The emphasis is on having fun and keeping fit.
There is an indoor athletics competition in November and the children then have the strength to tackle the cross-country run at Woodlesford Primary School in May (Bronze and Silver medals last year!).
