We were delighted to be chosen this week by the Get Ahead team to receive a bag full of sports goodies including footballs, tennis balls, cricket bats, fitbits and more. These are going to be allocated amongst all of the children.....I wonder what your prize will be?
We have also got this weeks challenges from the Get Ahead team for you to try. Take a look at Week 7 challenges at the bottom of the page
And finally, another competition from the Get Ahead Team. Thy have created a Boccia challenge for you to complete. Get trying, you may be the winner! We had some winners at our school from the skipping challenge, lets see if you are up to the Boccia challenge! Will you be the winner?
Here is an image of our completed walk.
We did it! It only took 3 weeks and we completed our challenge to walk the whole of Great Britain! We set off from John O Groats in Scotland on Monday 18th January and by Monday 8th February we had walked through Scotland, down the west side of England, passing the border with Wales and reached Land's End in Cornwall. (We even had enough miles to start the return journey!)
Keep up the walking, biking, scooting (anything which raises your heart rate) and I will plot us another journey. Shall we complete a return journey, walk the coastline of Great Britain or head out into Europe and visit some countries and capital cities in Europe? Remember, keep log of your miles and send to your teacher the first week back.....Mrs Clark

In week 2 of our challenge to walk (run, scoot or bike) from John O'Groats to Land's End as a school, we have managed to walk 298 miles!
We left Loch Lomond and quickly reached Glasgow. Then we continued South, leaving Scotland and passing by the beautiful Lake District. We went past Blackpool and Manchester and reached Leek in Staffordshire on the edge of the Peak District. If we have one last push next week, I think we can reach Land's End, we only have 288 miles to go!
Get those boots on and off you go!

Last week, the first week of our walking challenge we collectively managed to walk/run/scoot or bike an amazing 252 miles! Look at the map below... the red line is where we will walk, and I have covered over the line in blue to show what we have done. We have reached Loch Lomond just outside of Glasgow. Brilliant everyone, keep on walking.
We have bought everyone a skipping rope, so if you haven't already done so, collect your skipping rope from school. Beat your best in the next 2 weeks, how many skips in 2 minutes? (Plus, lots of other skipping tricks for you to try.) Watch the video Skip Higher | Get Ahead (letsgetahead.co.uk)
