Stratford Rec. Years 3-6. 9.2.19


A huge thank you to all of the children that gave up their Saturday morning to compete in the Cross Country races at the Rec. The conditions were certainly a lot drier than the last event. It was pleasing to see children from all year groups, all putting in their best efforts to do be the best that they could.

Again, some children maintained their top 10 status and some gaining personal bests.


Well done to all of the year 3 and 4 pupils who have competed this season, we look forward to seeing you all again next season.

There will be one more race for years 5 and 6 on Saturday 2nd March, at the Croft.

Saturday 19th January- Stratford Rec- Years 3-6


The extremely wet and cold weather did not put 30 of our pupils off in competing in the 2nd Cross Country event of the season.

The morning began with light drizzle which for the years 3's and 4's was bearable running conditions. By the time it got to the year 5 and 6 race the heavens opened, the ground dispersed in mud, leaving only traces of grass.

Despite the weather, all children completed their race, some of which came over the finishing line with huge smiles on their faces as they had got a personal best.

A fantastic effort was made by all children, a special mention to Joel in year 4 who began his race out in 1st place, who started off at a very quick pace, of which nerves were kicking in from the spectators, wondering if he could maintain it. With Joel's determination, he was not letting anyone get past him and won his race.

Martha, in Year 6 continued to maintain her top 3 position and with the great results from the Year 4 boys they received the team award.

Please see full results below.


Well done to all of the children who took part, and a very huge thank you to the adults who braved the cold and wet to support their children.


The next race is at Stratford Rec for years 3-6 on Saturday 9th February.


Stratford Rec 17.11.18


The Cross Country season started off well with children from Year 3-6 competing against children from surrounding schools at Stratford Rec. We had 25 children from TJ, some of which were new to Cross Country and others who were out to achieve personal bests.

Conditions were perfect for our runners and the results were amazing.

I look forward to seeing all these children at the next event and hopefully more from Yrs 3-6


Next Event- Saturday 19th January, Stratford Rec, 11am for Yrs 3-6
