Marathon in May
Throughout the month of May, Clapgate have been participating in the Marathon in May challenge. By taking part in the daily mile, children and staff have been able to clock up and log a number of miles to try reach the 26.2 mile goal. Scores are being logged in classes and we even had a special Fun Run Daily Mile day on Friday 17th May. This involved pupils and staff running an extended daily mile course with added obstacles such as hurdles, agility ladders and hoops. Children have been sponsored for taking part in the event to help raise funds for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal which helps raise funds for poorly children and adults.
Thank you to all those who have supported us within this! The class who runs the most miles in May will be awarded a prize!
An Olympian visits Clapgate!
On Wednesday 27th March, the Olympic swimmer Joe Roebuck visited Clapgate! This was a fantastic day which involved all children attending an assembly with Joe who told us how he remained determined and driven to achieve huge success including representing Great Britain in the London 2012 Olympics, 10 time British Champion, European Champion in 2010 and 2011 and double Commonwealth Silver medallist in 2010.
The children also participated in a fitness circuit with Joe which involved star jumps, mountain climbers, spotty dogs and more! Joe also ran a growth mindset workshop and Q&A with each year group too.
To celebrate Joe Roebuck attending Clapgate, the children gained sponsorship money which will help our Great British athletes with their training and the resources they can access. It is amazing to think that the children of Clapgate we help a GB athlete get to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics!
