Welcome to

Elmsett C of E Primary School

Small Schools XC Run March 2017

Elmsett hosted the Small Schools XC Run on Wednesday 1st March 2017 and welcomed teams of 5 boys and 5 girls from Whatfield, Bildeston, Kersey and Hintlesham Primary Schools in year 4 to complete the almost 1 mile course around our playing fields and Buckles' Wood.

After a warm up the girls set off first with year 6 Alex running a head as the hare and Iona following at the rear to ensure the safety of the children. The girls made excellent time and Lottie from Elmsett came in 1st place, Lexi from Elmsett in 2nd place and Isabella from Kersey in 3rd place.

The boys had kept warm and were keen to set off! Again it was an Elmsett 1, 2 with Luke coming in 1st place, Oskar in 2nd pace and Dillan from Bildeston in 3rd place.

The Elmsett team did brilliantly with Molly in 6th place, Charlotte in 7th and Ruby in 8th which really gave us a great team score! Bradley (year 3)  came in 17th and Morgan in 20th - fantastic!

Points were given for the top 12 finishers and then tallied to give an overall team score. We were delighted that as a team,  Elmsett won the girls race, came second in the boys race but were the overall winners (again!).

All of the children put in a fantastic effort and should be very proud of their achievement.

Elmsett Team: Molly, Luke, Lottie, Oscar, Lexi, Morgan, Charlotte, Bradley and Ruby.
