Cross Country

Over the course of the winter cross country season our school has been taking part in lots of different cross country races all around the county. We’ve really enjoyed visiting lots of different schools and inspiring other children to take part and get fit! The competitions rounded off with a last open circuit at Gwernyfed High School, run by the schools Sports Ambassadors. Then we were invited to a final race up at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth. The children did incredibly well, and great team spirit shown by all!

Overall school champions dab for victory!

Year 6 Team winners

Royal Welsh Show Competition. See if you can find us on the starting line, charging around the bends and sprinting along the final stretch in the main arena!

Special congratulations to Jack Organ who won the Year 6 Boys race and the Year 6 Boys team who won their team race.

Gwernyfed Athletics

The Sports Ambassadors from Gwernyfed High School invited us to an athletics event they hold every year. There was lots of different events to try. We got different scores: gold, silver or bronze depending on our times and distances.

We had LOADS of fun as you can see by how fast we were running!

Windfall Apples

Whilst rooting around in the garden preparing for the winter we noticed that there were LOADS of our apples that had fallen off the trees underneath that we hadn’t noticed, and that were perfectly good to eat. Luckily there were also still some sneaky autumn raspberries growing in the depths of the raspberry canes. Miss Jenkins decided that we could do some inventing. First we brainstormed all our ideas, then diamond ranked them into which we thought would be tastiest.

We used the internet and researched existing recipes, then created our own designs. After that we made a shopping list for Miss Jenkins, including estimated prices from supermarket websites.

Finally we were ready to create our very own creations! We made Apple and Raspberry Pancakes, Mouth Watering Strudel, Team Crumble, and Apple and Raspberry Slush. We were a bit too excited to make our inventions and so forgot to take photos of everything…Oops!

   SO delicious! We cant wait for our raspberries to grow again next year.
