On Thursday 17th October Miss Mills, Mr Bunhejee and Mrs Dainty were lucky enough to be able to take 32 children to the Erewash School Sports Partnership Cross Country event at Wilsthorpe. The team had been practising for the last five weeks, with Mr Bunhejee and Miss Mills at dinner times, and were excited to finally get to race against other schools. Representatives from Ashbrook, Chaucer, Grange, Firfield, Harrington, Sawley, Shardlow, Dovedale, Risley and Parklands gathered for the start of the races. The first race was the Y1/2s racing over a distance of 1km against over 40 other children. Everyone in the team did really well and we finished 1st overall with some fantastic individual performances. Felicity R came 2nd and Ollie S was 3rd overall! After that came the Y3/4 race over a distance of 2km against over 60 children. Again we had some super performances and came 4th overall. Finally came the Y5/6 race running over 2km as well and more than 60 children participating. At the front were the children of Longmoor who managed to earn the team another 1st placed finish. Harry C in Y6 earning himself a 2nd place finish! Fantastic results for Longmoor! The children can be proud of themselves and how well they represented school. We saw some determined performances. Well done. A big thank you to all the parents and carers who came along to walk the children to the event and support the children, we really couldn’t have done it without you.
