All Junior children have started a challenge to run the equivalent of the London Marathon over the next half term (Years 1 and 2 are aiming for a half marathon).
Every child has run a mile at a time; some have run up to 3 miles. Mr Hope and Mrs Kellett have set up a map so that students can see where they have got to around the route and are hoping that this will give them a visible challenge to aim for plus a little competition – leading to an increase their fitness!
Although Reception are not taking part they wanted to have a go on the track and all Reception ran a mile – as well as two Nursery children, which is a great achievement.
We started on the 10 May and one child, Tommy Liddy, has almost completed his marathon already!
