Whole School Cross Country
Year 6 Cross Country
First thing on January 21st the year 6 pupils had to run 6 laps of the school field. It went very well as all the pupils that participated finished successfully.
The boys started slow but then picked up the pace between the second and third lap of the field. Most of the boys started to walk up the hill but then they began to start building up their strength. As they came to their final lap they started to sprint their way up the hill.
The girls started very quickly and then adjusted as it came to the 3rd lap of the field. As it began the girls all spread out. They all needed encouraging as they started to walk between the 2nd and 4th laps of the field. When they came to the finish line everyone had smiles on their faces.
Year 3 cross country
On the 21st of January, the year threes had to run 4 laps of our school field. It went very well as all the pupils that participated all finished successfully and all tried their best and hardest.
The boys went first, they listened very well to the instructions. When they started they were all very promising. As we encouraged them further, they all progressed and had faith in themselves. Although some needed a little push at the end.
When the girls started they all sprinted into a good position. They walked up the hill more than the boys did. But they all continued whilst they were on the flat base. The hill was the only struggle that they faced.
Year 4 Cross Country
After lunch the year 4s took part in the cross-country event. They all tried their hardest, although some did not make it through.
The boys ran first they started very quickly. They all sprinted down the hill but as they had overcome the hill they started to slow down rapidly.
The girls went second but they started slowly and then picked up the pace between the 2nd and 3rd lap of the field.
Year 5 cross country
The last year group to take part were the year 5’s. They all tried their best and all completed the challenge.
The boys went first they started rapidly but then slowed down quite quickly. As it came to the end they really cheered on the people that had not finished and got them to persevere to the finish line.
The girls went second, half of them walked and half of them ran the first lap but in the end all of them ran the 6 laps of the field showing resilience and perseverance.
