Skipathon for Sport Relief

Last term we held a Skipathon in aid of Sport Relief. 

The children spilled out onto the playground at ten past nine, skipping ropes in hand, with a target of 5,000 skips as their Sports Relief Challenge. By half way through, they had smashed 5,000 and were well on the way to 8,000. The children skipped their hearts out, some hardly drawing breaths, to keep going and tot up as many skips as they could. As the final whistle went, and Mrs Walsh dashed from group to group collating the scores, it soon became apparent that we had not only doubled our target, but actually notched up no less than 11,870 skips! We raised an amazing total of £406.60p
