Cross Country Tournament KS2
On Thursday 14th February, 14 children from Chestnut and Oak classes represented the school at the Basingstoke Primary Schools Cross Country competition. With over 15 other schools represented, the competition was fierce and there were some very strong runners in all the races. Each race had over 100 competitors, who all completed the course around Down Grange fields.
All the children who took part were an absolute credit to the school – we participated fairly and tried our very best.
Those who ran were surprised by the distance that they had to cover. Although it took less than 10 minutes, it felt like much longer! Once we had looked at the map, we estimated that Year 3 and 4 had to run about 1km and Year 5 and 6 had run a further 500m.
A huge well done to our runners – you should be very proud of yourselves.
