On Thursday 12 October we took 24 girls in Y3-6 over to The Manor in Oxford for a friendly Cross Country event. For some it was also their first experience on the school minibus which was very exciting!
The girls were a little nervous but also excited and were full of anticipation of what lay ahead. We had 6 girls from each year group and after a warm up with Miss Bradley and a chance to go around the course, the first race was for the Y3’s.
The girls ran the following distances:
Y3 – 800m
Y4 – 1km
Y5 – 1.2km
Y6 – 1.5km
All the girls ran really well and learnt a lot from the event. There were some exceptional runners from 6 other schools and our girls all finished strong. Our top performers were Alice in Y3 and Alessia in Y4 who both finished in 5th place in their age group.
After all their hard work, the girls enjoyed some snacks before heading back to Maltman’s.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
