Our 401 Challenge Week! (13 images)

As part of anti-bullying week we took on Ben's 401 mile challenge. We did a few warm up exercises and then ran or walked 4 laps around the school which means we all achieved the special mile. We were very proud of our achievement and received our certificates on Children in Need day. We also learned a special song called "I'm gonna be your friend", maybe ask your child to sing it to you!
