Cross-country 2017-2018

Children from Years 3/4 and Years 5/6 took part in a cross-country competition at Sunneyfields Primary School. Eight schools from the local area took part in 1 mile races. All the children ran well, with particular mention going to Ryley Gray from Year 4 who finished 2nd out of about thirty children. Ellie Wilkins finished fifth in the Year 3/4 girls’ race. Well done to all involved. Thanks go to the office staff for their support and to Miss Smith who helped look after the children.

Teams of boys and girls from Years 3/4 and 5/6 participated in Doncaster Schools Games cross-country finals at Balby Carr Academy. The children ran a long distance race against 24 other schools with over 400 children taking part. Our Year3/4 boys did really well and finished 6th out of the 24 schools, and performed especially well in the 800m event. Special mention goes to Ryley Gray who finished 16th out of 100 children. Well done Ryley! The Year 5/6 team tried hard and finished 22nd out of the 24 schools. Mr Johnston would like to thank everyone who supported the event, the other schools who took part, and, most of all, the children who tried their best and really pushed themselves. 

Cross-country 2016-2017

In November, Year 3/4 girls finished second in the Doncaster finals. and qualified for the South Yorkshire finals at Cannon Hall in Barnsley. They had to run a 1600m circuit around the grounds. There were 65 girls in the race. Rhianne Brown finished 33rd, Grace Cook finished 47th, Lacy Monger finished 57th  and Licia Barlow finished 60th. The girls tried hard, performed well, and did themselves and the school proud. Well done, girls.
Children took part in a cross-country competition at The Keep Moat Stadium. This was the first time entering this kind of event. They all ran really well! Fearne McCormack performed particularly well, finishing fourth behind three children from Hill House School which is renowned for its running.
