Sixty-four children from Redcastle Furze, Queensway Junior, Abbey Junior and Norwich Road schools met for the third annual indoor athletics festival for 10 and 11-year-olds.

This year's event was held at Redcastle Furze Primary School and was hosted by Miss Woollett, the SSCO (School Sports Co-ordinator) from Charles Burrell with some help from Junior leaders from Charles Burrell and the SSCO from Rosemary Musker, Miss Readie.

The event was a huge success with both staff and pupils stating what an enjoyable event it was.

The children had to participate in a number of track and field events including relay races, obstacle races and hurdling events.

The field event consisted of speed bounce - jumping from side to side over a marker with one pupil achieving 110 jumps in just 30 seconds, a record for this event in Thetford.

Other events included a seated chest pass, standing high jump, standing long jump and five strides.

The overall winner of the competition was Redcastle Furze.

Stuart Knock, PE teacher at Redcastle, stated: “I wanted to give as many pupils as possible the chance to participate and the children have had a really enjoyable time.”
