Earth to Space in a day!

On Thursday, every one of the children (and staff) took part in an Earth to Space Duathlon. Each class had 30 minutes to cycle, run or walk as far as they were able. At the end of each session, their total distance was calculated. At the end of the day, all class totals were added together to see if we achieved the equivalent distance from earth to the moon. You will be pleased to know that we more then doubled the required distance, achieving a grand total of 1864km…..approximately 5km per child! Equally exciting is the fact that we broke all previous primary school records and now hold the lead. We are the school to beat! The children worked really hard and had a great time. I would like to thank Helen Trenchard, school governor, for helping with our bid, as well as the Triathlon Trust.
