‘Climb the Heights’ Skipping Challenge


Today was Team Work Thursday! We participated in the ‘Climb the Heights’ Skipping Challenge. We set a target that the whole school worked together on throughout the day to achieve.  We counted how many skips each pupil completed and then we had a look to see how many of Europe’s mountains our school climbed. We managed to climb most of Europe’s mountains even Monte Bianco in Italy (4,810m) and Mont Blanc (4,810m) !! Below are some of the results.
