627 Sports Challenge

St Peter's School

627 Sports Challenge

627 challenge

Last week's sporting House Challenge was inspired by our foundation year 627AD. The challenge was to create and complete a physical challenge using the digits #627 and our pupils surpassed themselves once again.

There were many entries and some extremely inventive ways of carrying out the task and it was pleasing to see the pupils working independently in interpreting the challenge and adapting their specific fitness requirements to the task. 

Results were awarded for participation, distances covered and originality. The House results, based on participation, are as follows: 

1st: Dronfield
2nd: Rise
3rd: Temple

Special mentions go to the following pupils:

James – ran 62 miles over 7 days, completing the furthest distance covered including a half marathon on the last day! 
Madison – completed 7 exercises in 62 seconds in 7 different shirts.
Ben – ran 26.7Km and 76.2Km mountain bike in 7 days
Mollie – 62 somersaults on her trampoline in 7 days wearing her school blazer.
Minnie – completed 267 different activities in 3 days, including pulling a land rover, swimming in a pond, gymnastics, cheese rolling, caber tossing, axe throwing, cross country skiing, woodland pole vault and even the luge.
