Wilsthorpe Cross Country Event Y2-6

On Thursday 4th October Miss Mills, Mr Bunhejee and Mrs Dainty were lucky enough to be able to take 25 children to the Erewash School Sports Partnership Cross Country event at Wilsthorpe Secondary School. The team had been practising for the last three weeks, with Mr Bunhejee, Miss Mills and Mr Johnson at dinner times, and were excited to finally get to race against other schools. Representatives from Ashbrook, Shardlow, English Martyrs, Cloudside, Parklands, Firfield and Harrington gathered for the start of the races. The first race was the Y5/6s racing over a distance of 1.5km The team did really well and finished 2nd overall with some fantastic individual performances. After that came the Y3/4 race over the same distance of 1.5km. We had lots of top 10 finishers and ended up winning the Y3/4 team event. Finally came the infants race running 750m. At the front were the children of Longmoor who managed to earn the team another 2nd placed 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.
