Sherrards Wood Cross Country

On Wednesday 3rd April our Cross country team went to Sherrardswood school to compete in 4 cross country races.

It was a beautiful but cold day- conditions were good!  All children warmed up with Mrs Gutteridge- they were excited, but a little nervous.  There were about 200 children racing in total.  Our children had been training hard every Wednesday lunchtime for the last two terms.  All children raced brilliantly; nobody stopped, everyone just kept on running their hardest.  Everyone cheered each other on!  We are  so proud of them all.  Girls B team came 2nd, Girls A team came 3rd, Boys B came 4th and Boys A team came 1st.  Congratulations to Stanley who came 2nd in his race.  The team was:  Stanley, Luke, Zach, Thomas, Sean, Oscar, Harry, Oliver, Marley, Callum, Jamie, Josie, Poppy, Sophia, Holly, Roxy, Chloe, Erin, Lily, Lacey, Sophie.  Sadly Louie and Luca were unable to take part that day, but also made the team.  Mrs Gutteridge and Mrs Reid are both leaving our coaching team and with say thank you and goodbye with heavy hearts.  Thanks must also go to Mrs Heaney, Dr Cox and Mr O’Neill for training the team.
