Have you ever wanted to walk the Globe?

Year 6 have and so we decided to put our money where our mouth was and take part in the Global Children's Challenge. Over the next 50 days, every child (and teacher!) in Year 6 will be counting the number of steps they take with a pedometer provided by the Children's Global Challenge. We will be competing against teams from all over the world to see how far round the Globe we can get.

So far 6LE have walked from Niagara Falls, through Toronto, down to Orlando, across the boarder to the Galapagos Island, past Venezuela to the Amazon Jungle. You can follow our travels by logging into Wizkid and clicking on the Global Challenge link.

Along the way, as well as getting fit, we are learning about the Countries we are visiting. Did you know that The Amazon is home to the world’s biggest snake – The Green Anaconda. The largest one caught was eight metres (26 feet) long! ... Nor did we!

Oh... and as it is a competition, we are really keen to beat 6L!
