November 2022

Cross country race

An impressive 20 schools from across the Colchester district accepted the invitation to compete in this annual event. With a minimum of 4 children from each school in each race, there were approximately 100 children in each category. Year 6 boys went out first followed by the other year groups, finishing with the Year 3 girls. Unfortunately, the weather was not kind; it was very wet, windy and cold!

We had some fantastic individual results. Harry and Charlotte both finished in 5th position. Johnny and Leo also made it into the top 10 (8th and 10th respectively). Overall, we had 8 finishers in the top 20, which is amazing! Well done to all of the runners. They all really enjoyed themselves and will remember the experience for a long time, I expect.

Fun Run

Eight children, supported by our Year 6 Sports Leaders, took part in a running event on the 4th of November where they undertook a personal challenge of completing a target number of laps that they set themselves. It was a great afternoon and they all enjoyed themselves, running around in the sunshine. They all completed their targets then surprised themselves at how much more they were capable of doing and kept going. Some even managed to complete a total of 2 miles! Congratulatons to them all.

Tiptree & Stanway District Athletics competition

After 3 years of no inter-school sports events, we took a team of athletes to the Garrison track in Colchester and they were all fantastic! With many 1st places, overall we came 2nd in the small schools category - a brilliant achievement. Well done to all that participated.
