Priory Park - April 2018
A great week of sport for The Vine: Yesterday evening saw hundreds of children from all around Cambridgeshire head to Priory Park for the Cross Country Relay Championships, with 3 teams of 4 in both the boys and girls races we had high expectations and we weren't disappointed. The children put in a superb effort to complete the 1200m lap in a high class field. With plenty of encouragement from other team members, family and friends the runners did their best finishing a respectful 7th, 44th, 115th in the girl's race and 11th, 46th and 74th in the boys race.
Many thanks to all the parents and staff, for their support, transporting, coaching and cheering the children on.
Wimpole Cross Country December 2017
On Tuesday we took 4 teams, of 39 children to a Cross Country competition held at Wimpole Hall Estate.
The atmosphere was buzzing as all of the runners were cheered on at the start and finish of the course by fellow pupils, staff and parents that had come to spectate! Each race was hotly contested with runners keen to achieve their personal best and do their bit for the school team. As a school our final position was 9th out of 16 schools, a great achievement as a team and by individual runners who showed great determination and energy to complete the course as quickly as they can.
Running conditions were a little muddy underfoot but the course held out for the 800 runners who had come to compete for their school in this annual event. The year 5 & 6 competition was run as separate races for girls and boys giving us 4 races run over the 1600m, one lap course.
