Year 5/6 Quadkids Athletics – Big Schools
9 June from 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
FOR ALL, TARGETED, COMPETITIVE
All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.
FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.
COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This is a COMPETITIVE event for children in Years 5/6 who are ready for competition. The aim of this event is to support individual development in sport.
This event is open to all Big Schools* schools in the Partnership. *The definition of a big school, based on School Games criteria is any school that has 120 or more students in KS2.
Quadkids is an exciting and easy to organise athletics concept designed to give more children the opportunity to participate in and enjoy athletics. It covers the core disciplines of running, throwing and jumping in a team format.
Teams are made up of 5 boys and 5 girls, with each athlete competing in all events. Individual performances are scored using a points table and the winners are the team with the highest cumulative points score. All athletes take part in a 75m sprint, vortex howler throw, standing long jump and 600m run.
