Year 5 and 6 cross country at Polwhele House – Wednesday 21 November 2018
We took 26 children from Years 5 and 6 to Polwhele House School for inter-school cross country races with both Polwhele House School and Truro High School.
It is a tough, woodland course – about 1800m long – and the children loved the challenge of the downhill and uphill sections. You probably heard them talking about ‘garlic hill’ afterwards? Luckily for them, the course was reasonably dry and relatively fast, even through the lower woodland part of the course.
They all finished in the top 8 places of their race, with Woody (1st) and Oscar (2nd) and Kayo (4th) finishing in the top four placings.
Year 3 and 4 cross country at Polwhele House – Tuesday 27 November 2018
Heavy rain showers during the morning meant that the woodland part of the course was extremely slippery and long sections of the lower course were very muddy. In fact, Gabriel in Year 3 proudly reached the finish line wearing just one of his trail shoes. He simply said to me that he could not manage to get it out of the mud!
