Our sponsored mile run
The children of Lew Trenchard Primary School took part in a sponsored mile run at Lewdown Cricket field last friday to help raise money for Sports relief. The children had helped to measure the distance around the field as part of a maths lesson so they knew that they would need to run 3 laps to cover the full mile. Special credit must go to 7 year old Emma Crease who actually ran 8 laps because she was full of energy. A number of parents and staff also took part and helped to encourage the younger children. The winner was 10 year old Jamie Crocker Valeron who finished just in front of the very energetic, 6 year old Josh Craddock. Both of these children easily beat Jimmy Cole from Tavistock Athletics Club who claimed that he was waiting for his daughter, Holly, to catch up!
