We arrived at Royston Heath on a bitterly cold morning and were amazed at how many competitors there were—641 Year 5 & 6 children were gathered to take part in 4 different races. They were all competing individually and then their placings would count to an overall team place. The Y6 girls went off first: Abi Smith, Amelie Nugent, Alina O’Mullane & Emma Stewart. We were amazed when Abi came in 4th (out of 150+), Alina 6th, Amelie in top 12 and Emma not far behind. Y6 boys were: Benjamin Chamberlain, Vinnie Todd, Marley Ugarte Edwards and all tried their very best but there was some stiff competition. James Hawkins(Y5) ran a brilliant race, and was in the top 3 most of the way until the steep incline just before the finish and the slippy down run meant he lost a bit of ground but he still came in a fantastic 5th (out of 164+).

The girls were thrilled to have won the Girls Team Competition - a wonderful achievement!

Thanks to the parents who braved the cold and were great support for us all.
