Sponsored Walk 2014

On Friday 6th June, we held our annual sponsored walk. 

The theme for this year was 'The Road to Rio' and the aim was to walk the distance to the venue of the World Cup Final - just over 9000km. As well as walking, there were extra activities to have a go at along the way- the 'Dribble Master', 'Penalty King' and 'Crossbar Challenge'.

As well as raising money for the school, we were also raising money for Sport Relief.

Once again, the weather was amazing, the children had a great time and they totally deserved their Mars Bars at the finish.

Have a look at the photos below to see what we all got up to.
