Get set for Tokyo

As I am sure you're aware, the Olympics is taking place in 21 weeks in Tokyo. Schools around the Sevenoaks area have been set a challenge to see which school can be the first school to "travel" to Tokyo, through an accumulative total of miles over the next 20 weeks. Children in the school can walk, run or cycle for their distance to count towards the school's total.

From Sevenoaks, Tokyo is 5,938 miles away which means our school would need to walk an average of 270 miles a week. By going out for some simple exercise each day, I am sure we will be able to reach Tokyo! 

Please record how far your child travels each week and send me an email (found below) detailing how far they have gone by Sunday evening. I will keep a running total of school miles. There is a poster below for your reference of the school challenge.

Have fun and good luck!
