Cross country runners

On Tuesday twelve Year 3 and 4 boys and girls went to Blakelaw to take part in the Newcastle Cross Country event. There were over 600 children involved in four races on a beautiful afternoon. In both Year 3 and 4 races there were around 180 competitors. Daniel was our top boy finishing 15th and Edie was our first finishing girl in 20th position… All of our children were inside the top 100 runners which was a great effort and they did the school proud! In the team competition I expect we were inside the top ten schools but the official results are yet to be released…

Well done to the 23 Key Stage 2 children who took part in the wet and muddy cross country this week! There were some great performances from all the children which included a bronze medal for the Year 5/6 boys team (James finished 4th overall and Max 7th) and an honourable mention to the Year 3/4 boys team who had to catch the rest of the field from 20yards behind after a faulty start. Somehow Tom managed to still finished 8th!!
