Cross Country Year 4/5 Saturday 30th March 2019
What a brilliant morning in the sunshine!
A huge thank you and congratulations to the 23 runners that took part in the cross country event on King George V Park. There were 98 girls and 120 boys competing from all over Nottinghamshire and we are so proud to have had such a high amount of runners representing Berry Hill. Each and every one of our runners did a fantastic job.
The girls team finished with 73 points in total and a finishing position of 5th.
The boys team finished with 35 points in total and a finishing position of 1st!
Well done to all of the children!
Thank you to you and all of your supporters for another super, sporting event!

A huge congratulations to our cross country team who braved the cold at Wollaton Park.
Lily finished 38th in the 5/6 girls race
What a wonderful afternoon it has been today!
Not only has it been a marvellously, sunny October day but our year 5 and 6 cross country runners have been marvellous too!
11 children pulled on their Berry Hill t-shirts to represent our school at Manor Complex to take part in a 1700 metre race. The girls took to the start line first and set off into the distance. They were absolutely brilliant and all of them finished in the top 20 out of 46 competitors! One of our girls won the whole event, finishing 1st and qualifying for the finals of the cross country county championships in February.
Next up were the boys…they were keen to get started and set off at a fast pace. Within a short amount of time though, a red Berry Hill t-shirt came into view, way out in the lead, jogging across the finish line in 1st position! Closely followed by another Berry Hill runner in 3rd! Both boys gaining their spot in the finals of the cross country county championships in February too. The rest of the boys team came back in steady intervals out of the 57 competing boys.
We were so proud of all of the Berry Hill girls and boys who were amazing today. It was hard work and tiring just watching you all! Well done everyone!
