Young athletes enjoyed two days of sporting competition watched by hundreds of parents.

The youngest children at Bede Academy Primary in Blyth got the races and challenges under way followed the next day by Years 3 and 4 and, finally, Years 5 and 6.

The older children competed in a series of events including hurdles, jumping, throwing balls, javelins and beanbags, relay, sprint and one lap running races.

The days were organised by Laura Street, head of girls’ PE at Bede Academy Secondary, and also proved to be a good training ground for sports leaders, who are following a qualification that contributes to their university points.

Irene Watson, headteacher at Bede Primary, said: “We’ve had two days of wonderful sporting activities in glorious weather.

“The children have put in a lot of effort and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”

“We were delighted to see so many parents and grandparents supporting their children and we are also grateful for their support of our cake stall.”
