Cross Country Trials for Year3-6


Dear Parents

I am very excited about holding the cross country time trials on Thursday. We’ve now got approximately 20 children taking part which is brilliant. Please make sure they bring their PE kit with them and trainers. The trials will start at 3pm, but children will stay as if it’s a normal ECA and collected at 2.30pm. I’m aiming to finish at 3.45pm and they can be collected from the yard.

It’s not too late to register your child (Y3 upwards), just email me by Thursday morning and send them in with their PE kit.

Kind regards
