On Monday 10th January, children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 came together for the Manchester Athletics competition at Sports City.  There was a buzz of activity including: chest push, javelin, vertical jump, triple jump and many races.  There was no way you could get bored. St. Francis pupils all stayed focused and as a result some of us got really high scores.  We made a few mistakes but we built on them rather than letting them bring us down.  Everyone came to try their best and it certainly paid off as we came 1st place!  We will now be going to the Greater Manchester Athletics finals in March and we are ready to give it our all.
