Duathlon and Candlemas
On Tuesday we took part in a whole school challenge to pedal and run our way 717km to the International Space Station. Unbeknownst to us, they sent us the challenge to get there and back.
When we arrived in the hall, we were told that we would work in three teams to cycle, run and rest for 2 minutes on a rotation.
In Year 4 we managed to run 96km and cycled 141km between us.
This contributed to our school total and we absolutely smashed it!
The children all amazed us with their enthusiasm and competitiveness.
On Wednesday this week, the children were invited to attend the Candlemas Service at St Peter’s Church in Oundle. It was lovely to share the morning with all of the schools in the cluster and we were all excellent ambassadors of our school.
Leading up to the service, the children created a poster to demonstrate Caring in our community and the wider world. This poster will be on display in the Church if you would like to go and see it. Gethin in Legend class read our words on Caring extremely confidently and we were very proud of him. Barney in Wonder class collected the candle for our school and represented our school really well. Thank you to both boys for their involvement in the service.
We were extremely impressed by the behaviour of the children and they sang beautifully.
We hope you have a wonderful Half Term!
