Run 2 Rio  2016 Summer Olympics logo.svg 

22nd July 2016

The final total raised from the Run 2 Rio event was a wonderful £734.85 which will be split equally between the two charities chosen by the children: Make a Wish Foundation and Help for Heroes. Thank you all for your support of this.

15th July 2016

Message from Mr Gould: This week, we believe we finally reached Rio. The children have received messages from both Dame Kelly Holmes and Sir Steve Redgrave (see below) during the course of the event which has made it extra special. Thank you to those who have sent in sponsor money already. If you have any left to bring in, please do so by Tuesday 19 July, so that Enterprise Club can count it and it can be sent to the two charities chosen by the children: Make a Wish Foundation and Help for Heroes.

8th July 2016

We have received another message of encouragement, this time from Sir Steve Redgrave, Five times Olympic Gold Medallist:

"Congratulations to all those involved in the sponsored 'Run to Rio' campaign organised by Enterprise Club.  Well done for raising money for such great charities.  You are all winners.  Good luck."

Sir Steven Redgrave CBE DL is a retired British rower who won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000. He has also won three Commonwealth Games gold medals and nine World Rowing Championships golds. He is regarded as one of Britain's greatest-ever Olympians, the most successful male rower in Olympic history, and the only person to have won gold medals at five Olympic Games in an endurance sport.

Captain Hames visited school today and spent time with many classes, working with them on different exercise regimes. The (rain affected) total so far is 2608 miles. Well done – we can make it to Rio!

28th June, 2016

Just in case anyone needs further encouragement to take part in this exciting event, here's a message received via voicemail from former athlete Dame Kelly Holmes, MBE, DBE.:

"Hi to everyone at Madeley Primary School. It's Dame Kelly Holmes here, double Olympic Champion, and I've heard that you're doing a Run to Rio, what a great idea! I hope that you all enjoy it. Doesn't matter if you walk, jog or run your mile every day but make sure that you do it and try and raise loads and loads of money.  Rio's going to be fascinating again I'm sure in terms of all the events that you'll see, all the sports that you'll see on television.  There'll be a lot of superstars that come out of that and hopefully some really great British performances but, for now, make sure you enjoy sport because sport is something that's so special to have in your lives because it increases your confidence, it makes you healthier and fitter and I'm sure lots more things that your teachers will tell you so have fun and I hope you do well.  Bye!!"

Kelly specialised in 800 metres and 1500 metres events, won gold medals for both distances at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and was named BBC Sports Personalty in the same year. She set British records in numerous events and still holds the records over the 600, 800, 1000, and 1500 metres distances. Click on the picture to watch her winning 800m Gold (the first of the double) in Athens.  The look on her face when she realises she has won is fantastic!

Three days in, here are some comments from Year 6:

"Before we started, I wasn't excited but now it's fun"
          "It's good daily exercise"
                    "I thought it would be good before - and it is!"
                              "It encourages a healthy attitude"
"It's a good way to exercise"
          "I like how we are helping ourselves and other people too"
                    "It feels better knowing you are helping someone else"
                              "I didn't think I'd be able to run a mile but I'm really pleased and proud that I can"

20th June, 2016

Despite the torrential rain during the morning the event started today, as scheduled, once the clouds cleared.  Enthusiastic groups of children, from 4 year olds in Reception through to their much taller fellow pupils in Year 6, were observed at various points during the day completing their playground laps.  Year 1 weren't the only ones who needed a little encouragement to ensure they stayed on track rather than walking in ever decreasing circles!

Week beginning 13/6/2016

Run 2 Rio is a sponsored event organised by Enterprise Club starting on Monday 20 June. The aim of the event is to run (or walk) the distance between Telford and Rio to celebrate the Olympic Games.  Over the course of 3 weeks, every child (and some adults) in the school will run, jog or walk 1 mile each day and hopefully, by the end of this time, we will have covered the 5764 miles to Rio.  All money raised will be split equally between Make a Wish Foundation and Help for Heroes.  This fits in with the focus on the Olympics this summer and also supports this half term’s Christian Value of “Service and the Community”.  Members of the Y6 Enterprise Club have been very busy this week giving presentations to other classes about this project. 


Condover 2015

Y6 have spent the week at Condover where they have challenged themselves in all sorts of activities with many of them surprising themselves with their successes. All came back safe and sound (but very tired). This successful visit could not have happened without the dedication of the many staff involved, thanks go to them all.

Year 6 arrived safely this afternoon and, by the look of it, spent the afternoon working up an appetite:

Food glorious food!

11th November, 2014

Year 6 children went to RAF Cosford today to take part in a very special remembrance service specifically for us, with a few members of the public and war veterans. The service was led by Rev Alan Walden with some of the children reading poems and laying wreaths. This was a very moving time and the children were impeccable. After the service, the glass poppies which they helped to create were unveiled which you may have seen on Central News. We have been given one poppy to keep in school, while ten will be kept at RAF Cosford for up to a year before being distributed around the country.  Click on the link below for more details.
