Over the past 3 weeks there have been weekly cross country competitions at Godinton House with other local schools. The course was a challenge with long grass and hills to contend with. We entered pupils from Years 3 -6, some competing for the first time for Great Chart School. As always the children showed great sportsmanship and competed to the best of their ability. Unfortunately the second Year 3 and 4 event was postponed due to the rain so we hope the team will get an opportunity to improve their personal bests when it is re-organised.
The Daily Mile is certainly having an impact on the stamina of the children and we had some great results.
In the Year 5 and 6 events Aki won silver and gold medals and Jack and Summer secured two top ten finishes. All of the team either improved their position or their time in the second race -well done!
In the Year 3 and 4 event Oscar secured a silver medal and there were top ten finishes for Francesca, Willow and Harley. The Year 4 boys team took the team trophy -well done!
We are now looking forward to the County Cross Country Finals at Brands Hatch on 23rd November -more details to follow.
