CROSS-COUNTRY - NOVEMBER 2018
A very big personal ‘thank you’ to all of the children who turned out for the school cross-country races last Saturday, sacrificing a lie-in, club football or something else that they could have done instead. We are proud to have such committed children at Carnarvon!
DOUBLE GOLD! - OCTOBER 2018
Carnarvon were out in force for the Rushcliffe cross-country relay last Thursday. It was great to see plenty of ‘newbies’ representing the school and clearly enjoying the occasion. We had two thrilling, gutsy races, with the girls’ and the boys’ teams both winning gold. Tremendous stuff!

CROSS-COUNTRY - DECEMBER 2017
An early snowfall in Mansfield created some real wintry weather for the last race of the autumn season at Berry Hill on Saturday. Undeterred by the weather, runners attended in large numbers for some very competitive races in difficult conditions. It was a great way to finish the season though, as was the way in which our boys picked up winners' medals for the team event.

Our fastest five boys and girls in school took part in the qualifying race for the county-cross country event being held next term.

Congratulations to all who took part!
CROSS-COUNTRY - NOVEMBER 2017
On a beautiful crisp morning last Saturday, our runners were back in action again for the autumn cross-country league. Sienna ran on her birthday; Rahaan ran for the school for the very first time; the boys extended their lead at the top of the table and Abby lost her shoe in the mud near the start and ran the rest of the race in just a sock! A lovely way to spend a Saturday morning - well done team!
Rahaan's first race.
Where's Abby's shoe!!
CROSS COUNTRY - OCTOBER 2017
Rushcliffe Competitions organiser, Chris Ballard (pictured) visited our assembly recently to present the gold medals to our winning boys’ and girls’ teams in a recent cross country event. A historic result for both Carnarvon and the competition itself! Amazing team running!
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...

CROSS-COUNTRY RELAY EVENT - MARCH 2017
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!
