Year 2 Trip to Sir Roger Bannister Running Track, Iffley Road

Today Year 2 travelled to the Sir Roger Bannister running track at Iffley Road, which was where Sir Roger famously broke the four-minute-mile. We were met by Tony and Emma, two coaches from headington Road Runners, who put us all through our paces before we tried our own version of Roger Bannister’s achievement, by seeing how far we could run in 4 minutes.

We all had a brilliant time, and the children worked very hard on improving their running.

Big thanks to Miss Wiliams, Stevie and Mr French (Leo’s dad) for coming with us and helping.
