Journey to Santa Update!

We are very pleased to announce that we have hit our target of 2500 miles after only 4 days in week 1.  The winners for the best active classes for week 1 are:

  • Foundation Stage Mrs Hueston P2
  • Key Stage 1 Mrs Harkin P3
  • Key Stage 2 Mrs Mc Elhinney P5

The children have all received their homework pass!

Well done.

For Week 2 we are continuing to collect our miles to see if we can hit 2500 miles again to get Santa to visit our school.  Storm Barra has had a little effect on our journeys, but the children are continuing to be as active as possible throughout each day.

Which class is going to win this week?

At the end of Week 2 whoever has collected 10 stamps will be entered into a draw.
