Birmingham Primary Panathlon.


8 pupils were selected to participate in The Birmingham Primary Panathlon (Friday 5th November). 

For three pupils this was there first experience of a Panathlon and competitive event. 

All pupils participated as a team to collectively score points over a variety of multi sport activities such as boccia, new age curling, popcorn parachute, table cricket, basketball shoot and more. Please take a look at som of the photographs form the event. 

All our pupils really enjoyed the experience and it was great to be back out in the community competing alongside other schools in a well organised covid - 19 safe environment. 

Unfortunately we did not win !!! But we will practice and improve our techniques ready for the next event. The pupils all gained a great deal from the event, such as learning how to cope with loss, developing their social skills, improving independence skills and behaviour in the community. 

Thank you to:
