Year 3 Athletics with Ben Hazell

As the summer term began, Mayhill launched into their summer PE athletics unit with the expert coaching and support of Ben Hazell (Commonwealth games decathlete), and year 3 were not afraid to take on the challenge!

Our unit began with a multi-discipline lesson on long-jump, sprinting, long distance (600m) and nerf throwing. All pupils gave it their best shot, and their times and scores were recorded. As our daily lessons throughout the week progressed, we learnt the techniques involved in shot-putting and relay racing, and we continued to practise our nerf throwing. By the end of the week, we re-assessed our skills from the first lesson, and most of us demonstrated a massive improvement over the week. Well done to everyone in year 3. We can’t wait to show off our new skills at Sports Day next month!
