On Thursday, a group of students took part in the East Wight Cross Country Championships in Bembridge. In the individual races the children had to run 2 laps of the 600m course, and in the team relay they each ran one lap.
Our Year 3 girls started proceedings, in amazing style, in the Year 3/4 individual race. Neve came 1st and Indy came 3rd. In the relay, they had to work really hard, as there were only two of them, they both had to run two laps each again, but they ran superbly and finished 1st.
Our Year 3 boys raced extremely well in both the individual race and the relay, despite being up against some very strong Year 4s, Mason finished 6th in the individual race.
In the girls Year 5/6 individual race, all of our girls ran really well, and all finished in the top half of the race, with Ava receiving the silver medal. The girls then ran a fantastic race in the relay and finished 1st.
In the boys race, our Year 6 boys ran well against some strong opposition, again all the boys finishing in the top half, and Coby coming in 2nd. The boys finished 2nd in the relay.
Overall, our Year 3/4 team finished in 5th place, and have gained some excellent experience in sporting fixtures and cross country competitions next year.
It was very close, and with only 3 points in it, our Year 5/6 team finished 1st overall and brought home the trophy.
All the athletes that took part represented the school superbly, and gave everything.
