Yesterday afternoon, 15 KS2 children represented our school phenomenally well in the Basingstoke Primary School cross country competition. I predict that there were around 15 schools competing, which meant that there were a lot of children running in each heat. The Year 3/4 girls ran first and showed sheer grit and determination in order to run the distance of the field. The Year 3/4 boys ran next and performed fantastically well too. Luckily the sun was shining which helped keep the children a little warmer in the harsh winds at Down Grange. Finally the Year 5/6 girls ran their laps, followed by the Year 5/6 boys. By this time the field was incredibly muddy so they all did extremely well to not lose any shoes – which many other children did! I could not have been more proud of our Great Binfields children. Thank you to all of the parents that came to support their children on the side line too.
