The first Sheffield Federation of School Sport Schools (SFSS) Primary cross country race of the season was held at Norfolk Park on a mild and sunny Saturday in September. This was the team’s first outing in our new cross country t-shirts, which were very kindly paid for by the PTA. As you can see they are perfect for sport and look fantastic, so a huge thanks to the PTA!

It has been absolutely brilliant to have lots of first-timers join in the fun this year. Erin, Flo, Betsy, Felix and Arthur were amongst our new runners. The Y5/6 boys even managed to make up two teams, with 8 runners turning up to represent the school.

The second cross country race took place on 14 October at Parkwood Springs. A huge well done to all of our runners as this was a long, tough course with a couple of good climbs. The results are below:

Y4 Girls
Betsy 29
Flo 58

Y4 Boys
Arthur 143

Y5/6 Girls
