Year 5 and Year 6 Running Club 2018 -2019


Dear Parent/ Carer,


Running Club for Year 5 and 6 will start on Tuesday 18th September. After Christmas, the Running Club day will move to a different day, and this may be the case after Easter – we will let you know in advance of any such changes.


Last year we had record numbers in Running Club with up to 50 children taking part across both year groups. As with last year we are going to alternate weekly between Year 5 and 6 so that as many children that want to join get this opportunity without the need to be putting children on a waiting list. The sessions will run as follows:



Year group

18th September


25th September


2nd October


9th October


16th October


23rd October



If a session has to be cancelled (for example, due to weather) we will try to rearrange it for a different day of the week. If the session can’t take place that week it will not roll over to the following week (for example, if Year 5’s session on the 25th can’t take place during that week their next session will be on the 9th October).


We will be going for our training runs straight after school at around 3:30pm. The distance for these will range between 1 and 2 miles. We should be back at school by around 4.15 p.m. In order for your child to join the Running Club you will have to arrange for them to be picked up at this time. P.E. kit and suitable trainers should be worn. If your child is interested please complete the form in the FORMS section as soon as possible.


Yours sincerely,



Mr. J Morton (School Running Club Organiser)
