Cross Country Running Success

A total of 54 pupils in Key Stage 2 took part in a cross country competition, with six other schools.

The children ran distances from 500m to 1,500m, depending on their own age, at Carver Barracks in Saffron Walden on Wednesday 1st November.

There were many individual successes, most notably Charlie Barker, Year 6, Harrison Cafell, Year 5 and Oscar Woolnough, Year 3, who each finished in second place in the races for boys in their respective year groups.

There were also team successes for the Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 boys’ teams who will now compete in the next stage of the competition on 15th November.

PE subject leader Mr Molyneux said: “I think that everybody that attended from our school was a credit to Elsenham. Everybody tried their best and really pushed themselves, the support and encouragement they gave each other was fantastic to see."

Headteacher Mrs Reid said: “Our Year 6 Bronze Sports Ambassadors have become increasingly involved in leading and supporting sporting activities within our school and it was great to see them lead the warm-ups prior to the races. We continue to see the positive impact that the daily run is having on improving children’s fitness and our after school running club also makes a key contribution.”
