South Norfolk shine at the Indoor Athletics

South Norfolk Schools Run, Jump and Snow themselves into ation at the Indoor Athletics at UEA as part of the Winter Games!

As part of the first day of 2018 Norfolk School Games Winter Finals action the Sportshall Athletics County Level 3 competitions took place at the Sportspark. Despite the wintery conditions outside, close to 300 young athletes from Years 3 through to 6 took part in a wide range of Athletics events inside the fantastic facility of the Sportspark & tried to score as many points as possible for their Partnership teams.

Each of the Teams had qualified to represent their local School Sports Partnership (SSP) by taking part in a prior qualifying competition. Each SSP team included competitors in the Big Schools (Yr5/6), Small Schools (Yr4-6) and Yr3/4 events with the competition for the younger children being new to the Norfolk School Games for 2018

The qualifiers for South Norfolk Included Wicklwood Primary School for the big Schools boys and girls competition, Wreningham and Banham for the small schools combined competition and Wreningham for the year 3 and four boys and girls competition.

Sportshall Athletics is an indoor form of track and field for children between the ages of 4 and 16. It was created to provide a safe and warm environment for young athletes to train during the cold and dark winter months and quickly developed into a new form of team competition. The program focusses on fitness and multi-skill development providing grounding for all sports. It is totally inclusive, encourages children to get fit and promotes friendship whilst having lots of fun.

It was the older children who took centre stage first, with Pupils from Years 4 to 6 competing for their SSP in both Big Schools & Small Schools. It didn’t take long for the atmosphere to hit fever pitch as the boys & girls were cheered on to some fantastic performances driven by great displays of enthusiasm & sportsmanship.

After a short break for lunch it was then the team of the Year 3 & 4 pupils to shine, as they got the chance to take part in this brilliant sport for the first time as part of the Norfolk School Games program. They did superbly well and showed some excellent determination & talent to put on a real show for the watching parents to crown a wonderful day of sporting action.


In the big schools competition both the year 5/6 boys and girls teams finished 7th in the competition. For the year 5/6 small schools combined competition Wreningham finished 1st and Banham 2nd whilst in the year 3/4 girls competition, Wreningham finsihed 6th and in the boys competition Wreningham finsihed 4th. Some great performances and results and as School Games Organiser for South Norfolk, it was hugely impressive and satifying to see so many students involved, ative and enjoying sport. Thank you to all students and team managers involved, you should be proud of your efforts!
