Cross Country Championships

It was a beautiful autumnal day and the children were very excited and looking forward to competing.  For the majority of our year 3 and 4 children this was their first cross country run and a lot of them were feeling very nervous.  Despite these nerves the children showed real determination and commitment and put in some fantastic individual performances. 

This is a team event however, with the positions of the top 5 runners being taken into account.  Sixteen local schools took part and were divided into categories depending on the number of children in the school.

It was a very successful day.  The Year 3 & 4 boys’ team from Elsea Park won their competitions, coming away with the winner’s trophy and gold medals. The Year 3&4 girls and Year 5&6 boys from Elsea Park finished in third place, winning the bronze medals.

A fantastic performance for all the children who took part!  Well done!
