As the weather is beginning to improve, our sporting calendar has begun to take off again. Many congratulations to all the children, who took part in the Dudley Schools Cross Country Competition at Himley Hall. A large field of 173 boys and 160 girls entered the race, which took place in wet and windy conditions. A very special mention goes to George Smith in Year 6 for coming third in his first cross country event. This means that he now goes on to run for Dudley in the Inter-Area Cross Country Championships. Go George, we’re all supporting you! We were also pleased to enter a local cross-country event at Ridgewood High School on Wednesday and are delighted for Lowenna Beard in Year 6, who came third in the girls’ race. We are really proud of all our children for representing Greenfield with such determination.
On Monday our netball squad competed in the Stourbridge and Halesowen Schools’ Competition against teams from Colley Lane, Oldswinford, Manor Way, St James CE and Caslon Primary Schools. Our squad consisted of two teams: Freya, Charlotte, Amelia, Aleeza, Edward and Edie were in Team A, while Lowenna, Erin, Kate, Jessica, Tom, Sophia and George were in Team B. We were really impressed by the skills and excellent team play shown by both of our teams in all their games and very happy with the overall result with Team B winning the competition and Team A coming fourth, despite losing one of our star players to injury in the first round of matches. Many thanks to Miss Batham for coaching our teams and accompanying them.
