Inter-schools cross country
On Saturday the 28th of April 2018 we took part in the Waltham Forest inter-schools cross-country race at Chingford Plains. We were one of the best represented schools with 44 athletes competing! Everyone did extremely well to finish the mile-long race in difficult conditions. There were approximately 250 athletes in both the girls and boy’s races. We had some wonderful results but a special mention must go to two Year 5 athletes, Isla, who finished in 12th and Rocco who finished in 6th! Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you to parents for coming out in such great numbers to support.

THF coaches came into the school and took overfor the day, starting with a v=welcoming assembly.
During the day, three topics were covered including English, where the classes wrote poems about ten things they might hear at a football match. After break the children looked at spending money to build a fantasty football team and then played some games to earn points. A good maths lesson!
The final session of the day was PSHE. During this game, the children spoke about Resilience and how they could develop their skills in this area. The Premier League Primary Stars programme shows the the great work that is carried out by the foundation.
