What did the children think?
“It is calming and relaxing”
“Fun thing to do and pass the time”
The first this year was on Saturday 4th of October and the 2nd was 31st of October.
This is the distance the athletes run:
Year 3 – 1100m

Year 5 – 1794m
Year 6 – 2124m
We are very proud of all the children taking part and thank the parents for their continuing support.
Our cross country club is held every Wednesday lunchtime.
We linked with our local Asfordby & Melton Society of Anglers and used their licensed coaches to support this new activity.
With only 8 places available – the club was full with a waiting list within 24hours of it being offered to the pupils!
All of our young people developed the necessary skills over a series of sessions to ensure they can now fish safely …confidently catching and landing carp. Well done and thank you to all the parents and coaches for their time and commitment.
Strong Winds, slippy conditions and driving rain may have caused umbrellas to blow inside out however they did not put off the brave athletes who represented our school this weekend.
One of our young runners can be seen here as he confidently strides over the finishing line.
