The entire school spent today on a beautiful walk along the Grantham Canal. It was a sponsored walk in memory of our friend Alex Munn, and the proceeds will be used to create something in school that will give us a permanent reminder of Alex’s time at Robert Miles. It was a fitting event for Alex, full of smiles and laughter and no small amount of work! The year 5 and 6s walked from Redmile to Kinoulton, (a distance of about 11.5 miles) and the year 3 and 4s went from Plungar to Kinoulton (about 7.5 miles). Many of the children had never walked these distances before but they took on the challenge brilliantly. The weather was perfect and it was so nice to be out and learning about an important part of our local area’s history.
Here is the entire route:
A huge thank you to all who helped and joined us on the day and for the many who sponsored the children. Check back soon to find out how much was raised and our plans for the money. Here are a few photos from the day:
