Here is a short video created by Lily, Catherine and Madi from Class 5.
I think it captures the excitement of this week perfectly. The children
completed an amazing 1221 miles. Well done to all!
Another fantastic morning’s run/walk. The initial target is now so far behind us that it is a mere dot on the horizon. Running total is a phenomenal 941.925 miles. I am extremely confident that the 1000 mile barrier will go tomorrow. What an achievement!
Click on the link below to see how far the yellow dot has travelled on it’s return journey to John O’Groats.
Well done all.
A quick update on the pupil’s progress. At the end of the second day the children have covered an amazing 494 miles. The target is well within sight. Great effort from all those involved. Well Done!
The pupils have made a fantastic start on their 603 mile journey to Land’s End. So far they have covered an amazing 236.5 miles. Click on the above link to see how much further they have to travel. A great effort by all of those involved!
This year Bryn Offa have decided to support the NSPCC. In order to do this we have asked the children to take part in a sponsored walk or run. During next week, each class will be asked to walk/run for 20 minutes each day. Within these sessions, the total distance covered will be added together. As a school, by the end of the week, we aim to have covered the 603 miles from John o’ Groats to Land’s End. Please encourage your child to get as many sponsors as possible for this worthwhile cause and keep an eye out on the website for daily updates.
After a site survey I have decided to open tomorrow. A few things to remember:
- Children need wellies, hats, coats and indoor shoes in a bag (labelled) and possibly spare socks
- Children will be outside during break if they have suitable clothing
- Car park is very slippy but hope will be cleared by the morning
- Please take care when dropping off and don’t park on a slope
- Make own decision if journey is safe
- Children can be dropped off from 8:30am to ease congestion at 9
Please keep an eye on this blog if weather takes a turn for the worse.
The decision to close the school is mainly based on the advice of the local authority and their transport department. As soon as I receive the advice for tomorrow (13th December) I will make a decision and post here. Yesterday that advice came around lunchtime, so I am expecting to hear soon.
The BOPA Disco planned for Wednesday 13th December has been postponed.
Due to continuing dangerous road conditions, Bryn Offa will remain shut on Tuesday 12th December.
