Penclawdd Primary School Mini London Marathon


This week led by our Healthy Heroes our children from N-Y6 had the opportunity to participate in the Mini London Marathon. Classes had the choice to use the rugby field ,the yards or the gym . Each class decided on their route, calculated the number of laps and kept a count of their total.  The children aimed for 2.6 miles of walking, jogging, running or 26 minutes of continuous exercise. Our younger children were able to space their mini marathon over the day, go out several times or take a few days to hit the 2.6 miles. Our Healthy Heroes, who blew the whistle ,will be sending an email to Mini London Marathon of our total number of children who have entered.
