Little Hallingbury School pupils achieve good results in Uttlesford Schools Sports Partnership events
Hard work during lockdown paid off for a Little Hallingbury School pupil as she won a virtual 1k challenge.
Year 6 student Ella, who has been running regularly during the pandemic, registered an impressive time of 4min 6sec to win the overall girls' race in the Uttlesford Schools Sports Partnership (USSP) event.
There were also excellent performances from Jessica and Ralphie as they claimed silver and bronze respectively in the Year 5 races.
It was one of the USSP's fortnightly challenges for children to complete at home before entering their results online. The 1k run had over 200 entries from 18 schools across the district.
Little Hallingbury pupils have enjoyed activities put on by the partnership throughout the coronavirus crisis.
In the autumn term, Years 1 and 6 entered an indoor athletics event. The Year 1 team did well to come 11th out of 14 considering most of their rivals were from the year above, while the Year 6 squad were chuffed to finish fourth with only three bigger Saffron Walden schools ahead of them.
There were also timed challenges for Years 2 and 5 as they took on a timed skipping test and a ball toss game respectively. In the latter, Emily D won gold and there were silver medals for Mila and Jessica.
Back in the summer, Year 6 pupils took part in an archery competition at school and placed 10th out of 21 primary schools after entering their results online.
