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.
Mr Haynes and Mrs Alexander swamped by finishers.
It's all over - with the chocolate as the reward.
Standing on the line would be a better idea.
Will this one go in?
The secret - don't hit it straight at Mr Berkeley.
Ah, the open field in the Summer Sun.
Checkpoint 4 - the most remote of all checkpoints.

They're either finished or having a rest. Or both.

Not the post, the *crossbar*!
The secret - hitting the crossbar.
No caption necessary.
This is more like it. Walk like the wind, everyone
Heading towards the very first checkpoint.
Not quite getting the hang of a sponsored *walk*.
So much posing!
Like walking - but with a ball at your feet.
Just look at the concentration.
The secret - dribble really well.
Keep your eye on the ball.

The Crossbar Challenge - harder than it looked.
Less posing, more walking.
Things got a bit busy at checkpoint 5.
