On Friday 13th October, the Year 5 and Year 6 Cross-Country children took part in a very important race. Somers Park School competed in 11 races and won 2 of them. The children worked very hard no matter what. Their were 3 races for each year (Advanced, Intermediate and Fun Run). The intermediate and fun run were 750m long but the advanced was 1500m. The event took place on Peachfield Common. We had to start with a rather rough hill but as you ran further it started to get a little bit more even. At the end of the race you were given a card of which place you came and if you came 1st, 2nd or 3rd you were awarded a certificate. Natalie came first in the Year 5 girls advanced race. The children behind the ropes cheered loudly at the children that they were supporting.
