A buzz ran around Saltford Primary School recently following the news that KS2 had been invited to take part in the inaugural inter-school cross country competition.

The day started strongly with the Year 3 bubble (pictured above) setting a high standard of competition. The Year 3 boys all started positively with great determination. Eventually Charlie T broke away from the pack to claim first place, closely followed by Oscar B and Theo W. The Year 3 girls were lead by Clara F from the start who claimed a hard fought win, followed by Robyn H and Esther W. 

Year 6

Next up to compete was the Year 6 bubble. This was fiercely competitive from the start, with the all the boys determined to win a medal. Ewan S sprinted ahead of his peers to take a well deserved first place, repeating this feat from last year. Tobias F followed in second, with Tom H pacing himself well to take the bronze.

The girls then followed suit with another well run race by all, with twins Isla and Darcy W claiming first and second place respectively, with Phoebe L pushing them all the way to the end to take third. 

Year 5

Year 5s were next to take place on the starting line. Yet again they showed us all Saltford grit and determination. Ava D claiming first place, Amelia L hot on her heels in second with Lila O in third. The boys race proved to be hotly contested, ending with a photo finish to determine third place. First place was awarded to William A and second to Seb K, with Jack F narrowly claiming third. 

Year 4

The Year 4s rounded off the morning on a high. Again, a photo finish was required for third place in the boys, with Jack B claiming third, Harry K first and Anslem W second. The girls race was equally competitive with Nicole F claiming first, and Harriet C and Poppy D finishing second and third respectively. 

There was great sportsmanship by all involved, which saw some fantastic competitiveness. A big thank you also offered to all helpers who without input, the competition couldn’t take place.
