CROSS-COUNTRY RELAY EVENT - MARCH 2017
Whilst the KS2 Rushcliffe relay is always a highlight on the Carnarvon calendar, it was made all the more memorable this year by such a wonderful performance from every single one of our 32 representatives in Tuesday's warm spring sunshine. After an amazing first leg by Year 3 boys Marcus, Ryan, Henry and Matthew (putting us in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place out of 34!), Carnarvon never looked back, literally! Comfortably holding the lead throughout the race from start to finish, Eleanor in Year 6 brought the team home in 1st place by quite some distance, in a race she jubilantly described afterwards as; "Just the best race I have ever been in!"
An incredible afternoon in which every one of our children played a part - congratulations to all of you!!
CROSS COUNTRY RACES - FEBRUARY 2017
Sunny weather and stunning Wollaton Park scenery last Friday afternoon was a great way to see in the weekend; fantastic team and individual results were merely a bonus! 4th place for Maisy-Year 4, 9th place for Sophie-Year 4 and 11th place for Louise-Year 4 in a strong field of runners was not quite enough to secure a team medal, although in the other Year 3/4 race, the boys finished a remarkable 1-2-3 (Marcus-Year 3, George-Year 4 and Cameron-Year 4) claiming all three individual medals plus the team gold (with Oliver-Year 4).
Isabel from Year 5 won, then raced at the same venue on Saturday to qualify to represent the County at the nationals next month! Cameron from Year 6 also claimed a medal in the Year 5/6 race then achieved a similar personal milestone in a swimming gala, achieving the fastest U11 50m breaststroke time... in the country! We have some extremely talented (and genuinely modest) athletes at Carnarvon who also work hard outside of our school through their training to achieve great things; they're an inspiration to us all!
RUSHCLIFFE CROSS-COUNTRY TRIALS - DECEMBER 2016
On Monday 5th December we took our best runners to the Rushcliffe trials for the County Championship, which will be held in February. It was a tough race, as our children competed against the very best runners in the area for a place in the Rushcliffe team, with Cameron (4th) Marcus (6th) and Isabel (2nd) all qualifying. Congratulations to these three in particular on their achievement and well done to everyone else for having a go.
