KS1 Cross Country Festival October 2021

On the 19th October, 15 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 very excited to get started!
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 5th place! Then it was time for the Year 1 boys’ race, in which one of the boys achieved 7th place. This was followed by Year 2 girls and then Year 2 boys. One of the year 2 girls came 3rd, which was amazing and she even received an extra certificate for placing in the top 3 out of 15 schools! All of the children showed great determination to finish the race and really enjoyed taking part. They also represented our Federation brilliantly; clapping other children when they received their certificates and congratulating their friends. They couldn’t wait to get back to school and share their experience with their classes. Well done KS1!
