A MAPPING CHALLENGE

Practice your geography skills and learn more about where the Olympics have traveled — between the first games in Olympia and this summer’s competition which has now been postponed to 2021. Carry out research to find the locations – a quick google safe search will work. Mark all of the Olympic cities over the years on a world map – learn continent and country names as you work! 🌏

Virtual Half Marathon Finisher: Rhys Viner!

A HUGE well done to our first Half Marathon Finisher, Rhys Viner, who has completed 13.1 miles in his own time including a brilliant 5k in 29:55 mins but even more impressively a 15km run! It took him 1 hour and 52 minutes! WOW!

Rhys – you have done brilliantly and I know you have supported your Dad complete his own challenge of an extra 1km per calendar day in June, raising money for MIND.

We are very proud of you and hope to see you soon to be presented with your medal.

I hope you’re all well, happy and safe. I’ve had a weekend taken up by puppy play! 🐾💛 Little Nell has settled beautifully and is FULL of mischief; she particularly likes toilet rolls, hair brushes and the broom! My house is a mess with things found in very strange places 😆 Briar has come round to her a bit more too although I still have plenty of 1:1 time with B to reassure her we still love her just as much!
