Well done to our William Bellamy Cross Country Team!
Our Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils had to trial to finish in the top 6 in their year group. The pupils who were selected then went along to represent our school in the Borough’s Primary Cross Country Championships at Mayesbrook Park. The teams consisted of 12 pupils in each age group and were split into girls and boys making up teams of 6. The distance for Year 4 was 1 mile and the distance for Year 5 and 6 was 1.3 miles.
All the pupils who attended ran excellent races. After each of our teams competed, they then cheered on their friends in other races. It was a fantastic day! Our pupils’ efforts really paid off with our boys’ Year 4, 5 and 6 teams finishing in 2nd place, our Year 5 girls team also finished in 2nd place while one of our Year 6 girls, in the individual race, crossed the finish line in 3rd place. All these pupils came in a position which won them a medal. Our other teams also did really well on the day. Our Year 4 girls finished in 6th place and our Year 6 girls finished in 4th place. Well done to everyone who took part!
