CROSS-COUNTRY - OCTOBER 2017
Last Saturday, in weather that was far too pleasant and dry for cross-country, a few of our stalwart Year 4,5 & 6's turned out for the school, for the start of the autumn cross-country league. Great running from our girls, whilst our boys put in a tremendous team performance, placing them at the top of the league table in the first of three events. Thanks for your efforts everyone. Same time next month then...
SPORTS NEWS - DOUBLE WINNERS!!
Incredible performances at Rushcliffe Country Park on Tuesday by all of our runners resulted in Carnarvon winning both the boys' and the girls' race - an amazing achievement! There were 30 teams involved in each race; our boys' B and C teams finished 10th and 11th and girls' teams 6th and 20th, showing the strength in depth of our teams. Our runners are now looking forward to the Berry Hill League, which starts on Saturday 7th October…. Good luck everybody!!

place by quite some distance, in a race she jubilantly described stplace 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 1th and 4rd , 3nd, 2stWhilst 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.

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!
