After watching the London Marathon on TV this morning I have been inspired to go for a run this evening, maybe not as far as 26 miles though!

Lindsey from Blue Peter has taken on the 26.2 miles this year as she is promoting the Blue Peter Sports Badge! She did a quick interview half way through her run and said to check out the website to find out more, so I have!  To be awarded a badge you need to inspire a friend to join you in your sport.

Check out the link below to see if you could be awarded a badge, I would love to hear some of your stories of inspiring a friend to join you in your sport.

I was very lucky to have the privilege of taking the year 3 & 4 challenge run team to Raynes Park playing fields this week! It was a very busy event with 30 schools taking part.  28 children represented our school and they all did a super job!

All the children finished the race after battling through the busy start line! We had two children fall over during the race but they picked themselves up and continued to the end!

Well done Year 3 & 4s, I hope to see you at next years event too!!

Year 5 & 6 run to the finish line!

28 children from year 5 & 6 competed at the Merton School Sports Partnership challenge run yesterday and did really well! Mrs Mikkelsen commented at how fantastic they did and just how difficult the start of the race was with around 100 children starting at the same time as one another!

All chidlren should be pleased with themselves especially as it sounded like a very busy event! Well done to Lara in year 5 as she left the competition with a certificate for coming 9th place in her race!

fantastic results for Merton Park especially as 700 children took part at this one event!

Any tips for our year 3 & 4 children going to the event next week?
