Children from year 3 and 4 took part in races held at Water Orton and at Austrey Playing Fields. Due to the inclement weather conditions were very wet underfoot and the race at Austrey saw our children running in snow and hail. As always they represented the school wonderfully. All the children completed both races, despite the horrendous conditions. The girls team excelled themselves with Tilli-Beau gaining 2nd place at Austrey which, thanks to excellent running from Amelia and Roma, gained the girls team 2nd place overall. Well done to all who took part.

Mr Tyson led the front runners on his bike, Mrs Bryan led the speedwalkers and Miss Griffiths and Miss Kirkby ensured we didn't loose anyone on the way.We all walked alongside the farmers field on the footpath by the playing fields up to No Mans Heath. All of the children loved the challenge, with many being surprised by their achievements. Many thanks to all parents for supporting their child in this event through s
