Strachur Primary ‘Walk to Rio’

Strachur Walk to Rio 1Strachur Primary and Pre-5 have started a challenge – to walk the 6000 miles to Rio, where this year’s Olympic Games will be held. We have been doing laps of the playground and have figured out that 7 laps is approximately one mile. Last week we managed to walk 250 miles! The children (and staff) enjoy the exercise and we have also been learning about Rio in the classroom.


We are tracking our miles on a big world map in the lunch hall. If pupils do any walking out of school, we ask that they record their miles on their record sheet (see attached) and their parent/carer signs it to verify. These miles will be added to our total on a Monday at assembly.
