Cross Country
Norton-In-Hales School was represented by 31 children at the annual Cross Country competition at the Grove in October. A team of eight KS1 and twenty-three KS2 children ran their hearts out across the school fields. At the finish there was plenty of rosy cheeks and tired people. A huge well done to everyone who took part!

Thursday 5th October
KS2 Hi-5 Netball
Well done to the seven children - George, Ellie, Millie, Zach, Zeb, Ella and Caitlin - who represented the school at a Hi-5 netball tournament. The children gave it their best shot, demonstrating excellent teamwork and tactical awareness. All the children were impeccably behaved and, win, lose or draw, showed wonderful sportsmanship. Well done everyone.
