Triathlon Fun Day

Today we were really lucky to welcome the British Triathlon Foundation Trust to our school.  They started the day with an assembly explaining to the children about the Space to Earth Challenge which coincides with Tim Peake, a British astronaut, joining the International Space Station in December 2015.
The children learned that he will have to do 2 hours of exercise every day to maintain his fitness.  To link in the exercise the Triathlon team set the children a challenge of together, completing 400km on the bikes or running.  Each class had 15 minutes of exercise and at the end of the day the totals were added up ...and we had completed an amazing 700km.   Well done everyone.
The children all really enjoyed taking part and we will be watching Tim take off into space in December.
