The cross country took place at the college fields on Thursday 26th February and many schools attended. Before the racing we did plenty of exercise, and then walked the course to see how far and where we were running.
As we started the races the atmosphere was unbelievable, with people encouraging each other and shouting for their team/school. Because of the noise it made it more exciting not only for the people watching, but for the children taking part too.
Lots of kids were nervous because they thought they would come last. However, they were surprised by where they came in the race because they did better than they thought they would.
“We were astonished and thrilled with our school performance. When they got hurt or tired they had the strength to keep on going until they had finished the race. Their attitude was also amazing and we will definitely take them again,” said Mrs. Sayers and Mr. Rudd.
