Cross Country Running

For the past year, children have been running everyday for 5 minutes at the beginning of morning play. They have been building up their stamina and resilience – some are even running a mile each morning!!!
Last week some of the Year 5 and 6 pupils went to Southwark Park to take part in a 2km cross country run, and that afternoon we were treated to an assembly from parkrun junior to inspire us even more1
