Inter Schools Cross Country Tournament
Our team of Year 5 and Year 6 boys and girls attended the annual cross country event at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre. They had a course of 1.2 kilometres to complete and all entered into the races with lots of excitement. There were lots of other schools attending, so nerves were tense and all of our runners gave it everything they had. Well done to all of them and thank you to Mrs Haberfield and Mrs Anderson for coming along to help.
Four of our Year 5 children attended a morning of training to prepare them for taking a role in school helping to deliver sports activities, including lunchtime play and level one competitions between classes. The children really enjoyed the morning, trying out some activities they could deliver back in school and learning about the benefits of regular physical activity. They all left excited and keen to get started on helping children be active at lunchtimes. Well done to all of them for being so positive.
Thiis is the third year of this exciting local tournament, hosted by Weston Rugby Club. It is always great fun with the children organised into countries and competing in Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 teams.
This year the teams did brilliantly well with the Year 5/6 team getting all the way to the final and the Year 3/4 team going one better and winning their whole group. Well done to both teams - there were lots of really inspiring performances.
Thank you to Mrs Saunders and James for helping to organise our teams.
