Battle of Marathon!

Today, Year 4 re-enacted the legend of Pheidippides. According to legend, the Athenians ordered him to Athens and announce victory to the city. He ran 26 miles to announce this victory against the Persians!

Year 4 worked extremely well today and everyone ran 3-4 laps each to reach 26 miles!

Thank you to the year 6 young leaders, Maddy, Katherine, Fin and Ollie, who counted and timed laps, and cheered on our skillful runners!

Well done year 4 on completing your first class marathon and for perservering!
