On Saturday 25th November 2017, Harry (5W), Elliot, Conor (6 HD) and Emily (6G) represented High Down School and Team North Somerset at the Inter Area Primary Cross Country Challenge at Ashton Park School. The race involved teams from B&NES, Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire.
They all had great competitive races with very strong finishes from Harry, placed 20th , Elliot, 5th, Conor, 12th and Emily, 47th. In the team competition North Somerset Year 5 boys achieved 3rd place. The Year 6 girls achieved a really impressive 2nd place and Year 6 boys achieved first place. Well done to all of them.
On the 1st of November, High Down sent a Y6 boys and girls football team to Gordano to play against the other schools in Portishead. The weather was kind and there were lots of really good football played. The games were exciting as they were only ten minutes long. Everyone should be very proud of how they competed for High Down.
Yesterday, thirty children from Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in the North Somerset Schools Cross Country Competition at Bristol Grammar School. There were the best runners from schools across the county and the weather was wet and cold! High Down children, as ever, behaved impeccably and tried their hardest to complete the course as fast as they could. We had several top ten finishers and great personal efforts from everyone. In the team competition, the Y6 girls took bronze medals and the Y6 boys silver. Everyone should be very proud of themselves for their efforts.
Thirty of our pupils from Years 4 to 6 took part in the Gordano School Cross Country races. It was a long course with the Y5/6’s taking on 2000m of tough running. All of the children did really well and should be very proud of themselves for representing their school so well. We await the results of the team competition. Well done to each and every runner for trying their best.
UPDATE: We came second in the Cross Country – despite winning some of the team competitions we were pipped by Trinity by a few points.
