After the interest and success we had taking part in the county Cross Country Event at Newent Community School earlier this year, Mr Fowler and Miss Nuttall decided to run our very own Cross Country event for Years 2,3,4,5&6.
They set a track up on the school field which also led onto the playground and had 3 races, one for year 2 (2 laps), one for years 3&4 (3 laps) and one for years 5&6 (4 laps).
We had over 50 runners which was absolutely fantastic and shows the interest we have from the children in sport, to take part and in some cases try something new! Each race was brilliant with every child giving it a very good go and never giving up, they all showed encouragement towards each other and the cheering was amazing and really pushed their peers on to finish! It was fantastic to see so many children come together to enjoy taking part and being part of one big team and the staff were so proud of the children and their efforts. We also wanted to say a huge thank you to the parents who came to watch and cheer on, we really do appreciate your support and the children loved having you there! We now have plans to make this a yearly event.
Medals for each race went to:
Year 2: 3rd - Emilija Kursonyte, 2nd - Ollie Meek, 1st - Deondre Edmund
Year3/4: 3rd -Leo Shankster, 2nd - Hayden Agnew, 1st - Cameron Greenwold
Year 5/6: 3rd - Livvy Walters, 2nd - Cian Jones, 1st Lucas Holford
Special mention to Millie Atkins who really do push herself to finish the race, dug deep and never gave up! We were very impressed with her determination and attitude so well done Millie.
Once again, a huge thank you to all children, staff, parents and helpers for making the event a huge success!
