This afternoon, 16 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. They all did amazingly well and I could not have been more proud of our Great Binfields team. Thank you to all of the parents that came to support and to QMC/ Phil Jeffs for organising.
UPDATE- THE RESULTS ARE IN!
Our year 3/4 girls team came 16th out of 24.
Our year 3/4 boys team came 17th out of 27.
Our year 5/6 girls team came 20th out of 25.
Our year 5/6 boys team came 28th out of 32.
Brilliant effort by all, well done team GBP!
