32 pupils from Years 2-6 attended the School Games cross-country at Killerton on Thursday the 8th November.
For Year 2 pupils the course was 1.1km and for all other pupils the course was 1.3km. All pupils were excited for their turn to race on the extremely muddy course and supported each other throughout. In the first race, for Year 2 boys Harry finished in 1st for Broadclyst with two further finishers in the top 10 with Archie and Tristan Furthermore in the team competition Broadclyst finished 4th, just ahead of Westclyst in 5th. Next in the Year 2 girls races Harriet finished in 5th for Broadclyst who also won bronze medals for finishing 3rd in the team competition. Westclyst finished 6th in the team competition for this race; however it was great to see how the team worked together around the course with all 4 pupils finishing within seven places of one another.
After this the Year 2 pupils were able to enjoy their lunch whilst cheering on their peers in Key Stage 2. There were more excellent results (and even muddier pupils!) as these races finished including; Max finishing 8th in the Year 3/4 boys, Holly finishing 6th in the Year 3/4 girls as did Heidi in the Year 5/6 girls race. In the Year 5/6 Boys competition there were a number of excellent performances with Ethan finishing 1st, ably supported by Jasper finishing in 5th and Ben in 8th. Furthermore this meant that as a team they finished 3rd and were awarded bronze medals.
Every pupil involved performed admirably and despite the chilly conditions ran with a smile on their face.
