Cross Country – Primary Stars

On Tuesday 24th January the whole school travelled to Parwich, on a bus with Biggin children, to undertake a cross country event organised by ‘Primary Stars’. The event involved the EYFS & KS1 children running 600m and the KS2 children 1200m. This experience was rearranged from early November due to bad weather. The occasion involved 4 schools coming together and work in partnership with each other.

The children were full of excitement when they arrived back at school to tell the headteacher all about their experience. Cross Country is a sport that pupils of all ages can take part in and be accessed at the own individual level, ensuring a fully inclusive curriculum takes place.
