KS1 Cross Country Festival October 2019

Autumn Term 2019

On the 29th October, 16 pupils from years 1 and 2 took part in the West Norwich and Dereham School Sport Partnership Cross Country Festival. We arrived at our venue, Taverham Hall School and the children were keen to do a warm up as soon as they arrived!   We all walked the Cross Country course round the school field – 600m for Year 1 and 800m for Year 2.  Then it was time for the races.  Year 1 girls raced first with one of our girls achieving 13th place out of 100 competitors!  Then it was time for the Year 1 boys’ race followed by Year 2 girls and then Year 2 boys. One of the year 2 girls came 6th, which was amazing! The children were great at cheering on their friends and representing our Federation. Everyone managed to complete the course and showed great perseverance. The children really enjoyed the challenge and were determined to finish. They couldn’t wait to get back to school and share all the information with their classes. Well done KS1!
