Classroom to Moon Challenge

 

Prince Rock Primary School

'Classroom to Moon Challenge'

 

At Prince Rock Primary School we are trying to help Astro Mo reach the moon. We are taking part in a Plymouth-wide school walking challenge with the aim of, collectively, travelling to the moon by the end of October with other schools in the city as well as schools in our LAT (Learning Academies Trust).

 

The Classroom to Moon Challenge will be running from 1st October to 2nd November 2018. We’ve already kick-started the challenge by taking part in the Classroom to Moon Relay where children from Prince Rock walked to another school in Plymouth with Astro Mo, the mascot.

 

Through the challenge Prince Rock Primary and Plymouth City Council want to raise awareness of the health benefits active travel (walking/cycling/scooting) has, how walking is a great way of boosting a child’s energy levels and how it can be easy to include as part of a family’s daily routine. We hope the challenge will be a fun and engaging way to encourage children to try active travel modes and encourage parents/carers to walk for at least part of the school journey.

 

During the challenge, schools will compete against each other to see who can collectively walk the furthest over four weeks. The school that walks the furthest will win a fantastic prize!

Week 1

 

After one week of the challenge, Astro Mo has walked 36,560 miles, so he has left planet Earth and is on his way to the Moon! Well done to Glen Park Primary and Plympton Academy for walking the most in the first week of the challenge. Prince Rock is currently 3rd in the leaderboard for week 1 which means we have been walking lots of minutes to help get Astro Mo to the moon. Well done, Prince Rock! Here is the league table below, ranked from the most minutes walked to the least.

 

 

Here is the breakdown of all the individual classes' minutes at Prince Rock Primary. We are proud of how the children have embraced  active travel and even been trying to get up their 'Moon Minutes' at break and lunchtimes with their own walking clubs! What a fantastic start to the Classroom to Moon Challenge.

'Walk to the Moon with Mascot Mo'

 

This week, a group of friendship champions took a VERY long walk around the local area. As part of the ‘Classroom to Moon Project’ (a city-wide walking challenge), the children and staff certainly clocked up a lot of extra minutes for their classes. They carried their Prince Rock friendship flags with pride and were a real credit to the school. A brilliant effort, Prince Rock!
