The children have all worked so hard today!

Eagles class totted up 180 minutes of continuous badminton with 4 children taking part at a time – that’s a massive total of 720 minutes in total.  The record rally was 60 – yes 60 strokes long and was between Alexander and Sonny.  Fantastic effort everyone.

Owls class recorded 195 minutes of continuous basketball bouncing, with 3 children bouncing and 2 counting at any one time.  The grand total is therefore a whopping 585 total active minutes and an incredible 25 058 bounces.  Great job Owls.

Swallows have braved the elements today, taking part in a continuous obstacle course around the field.  They managed 195 minutes of continuous activity, with 5 children taking part at a time – that’s a total of 975 minutes!  What an amazing total.  They are all tired, happy and more than a little bit muddy!

The Kingfishers took their throwing and catching challenge by storm this morning, totting up a total of 60 minutes but with all the children taking part at the same time.  Team work, throwing and catching skills, resilience and determination in equal measure were they keys to their success.  A grand total of 1740 minutes!

Robins class have scooted through all weathers today.  Not deterred by rain, mud or cold they managed an amazing 180 minutes of continuous scooting!  With 6 scooters on the go at a time, that’s 1080 minutes altogether – what an awesome effort.  James and Arthur were the most improved scooters, showing resilience and courage to keep on trying!

So a grand total today of 5100 minutes, or 85 hours of active challenge at Alpington today!  Great effort everyone!

We are so proud of all the children today and thank you so much for all your sponsorship support.  It really makes a difference!
