CROSS COUNTRY 2017 / 18
Last Saturday Mr Kelly and Miss Hollingsworth went down to Woodbank Park to cheer on the Cross Country team. It was pouring with rain and cold, but it didn't stop the children! The children competed against other schools from Stockport. Oscar and James competed in the Year 3/4 race, whilst David competed in the Year 5 / 6 race. All the children showed great resilience and challenged themselves to do the best they could. They used all of their learning powers to a fun morning. Well done!
Year 3/4 Oscar 58th
Year 5/6 David 38th
Cross Country Report
Last Tuesday we went on the bus to cross country. Around 3:00pm we arrived at the running course. We did our warm up. When the boy’s race started the girls started getting excited. One by one the boys came past and we all cheered. The boys were puft out and all the girls were finding out where they came. Next it was the girl’s race. We bunched in our starting positions and www off went the whistle. The girls pounded off in a hurry and away we went. One girl from St Mary’s was leading the race. At the finishing line I beat her but other runners had overtaken her. At last we came to the end. I came in 5th place and Molly Grace came 6th and Izzy came 8th for St Mary’s. Our score was 19. I got back in time to cheer on girls and friends. There were approximately 41 or 42 children.
