Norfolk School Games Virtual Competition - Cross Country - November 2020

Pupils from both Wormegay and Runcton Holme took part in our first Norfolk School Games Virtual Competition.

Firstly, starting with Wormegay pupils on the afternoon of Monday 9th November, they all walked down in their class bubbles to our school field. This was the first time that class one had ever taken part in cross country and they did 4 laps around the field (1000m), the encouragement and cheering from class two was lovely to see. It was then class two’s turn, they had to run that extra bit further 1200m, they all achieved and managed to drag their tired legs back to school.

Then on Wednesday 25th November, it was Runcton Holme’s turn to take to the field, not as lucky with the weather as Wormegay, but with the raindrops falling from the sky this didn’t stop our class 2 runners, year 5-6 starting the event completing 1400m, then year 3-4 running 1200m. Thanks to our sport captains who set up the cross country course and a special recognition goes to Lewis who ran this cross country but also supported another pupil run theirs. Class one then took part, the weather luckily improved for our youngest pupils, even our two reception children wanted to take part. Lovely to see the encouragement given to peers and all celebrating their achievements. We hope to see some more Runcton Holme pupils back at the Daily Mile when it resumes.

Times were all recorded, converted into seconds and divided by how many pupils were in their group, these were then submitted on the Norfolk School Games website. We are very proud of each and every runner within our federation and you certainly demonstrated our school games values. They were all rewarded with a Norfolk School Games certificate. A big thank you to all the adults who supported during both school’s cross country.
