Cross Country

Thursday 18th June

After school on Thursday, 16 children went to Carnarvon Primary School in Bingham to take part in a cross country event.  There were 8 races, a boys’ race and a girls’ race for Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6.  The Y3s and Y4s ran approximately half a mile while the Y5s and Y6s ran approximately one mile.  It was a very challenging event against some very capable runners and all of our children should feel very proud of their achievements.
