Tour of Europe
The children have already walked from the spire in Dublin to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. 5 laps of our playground equals 1 kilometre. The children needed to do 215 laps to reach Paris. Every morning from 8:50am to 9:00am the children completed laps of the playground. Some children ran and some children walked. Our motto is ‘Talk while you walk’!
