Tokyo Challenge

18th March 2021

Russell Lower School will be taking part in Team GB and Paralympics GB's virtual Travel to Tokyo challenge and we're encouraging the entire school community to join in too!


We have turned the school into a Travel to Tokyo team and they will be making a 47,349 kilometre virtual journey around the world to reach Tokyo in time for the 2021 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We will be logging our physical activity in school and you can help out too by getting active as a family and recording your activity on our easy-to use Log Activity page. Adult activity counts too so please remember to log your activity too!


You can get started by trying some fun Travel to Tokyo activity ideas. All the physical activity your family does will count towards our team journey. You don’t need lots of equipment or space – playing in the park or having a dance off to your favourite song – if it gets your heart pumping, it all counts!


There will also be great prizes to win, like fitness trackers and Games hampers for the whole family.


You can keep track of our team's progress across the world and check out the weekly prize on our School Dashboard.


Please send us photos and videos of you and your family getting active, so we can share how we’re doing on the school website!

Update 16th April 2021:
We just wanted to share some good Friday news with you...we seem to have made it to Tokyo which is AMAZING! However, even more amazing than that is that we seem to be well on our way to getting there again!! It is hard to imagine this was only launched just over a month ago on the 15th March.
Thank you so much for all of your support with this in encouraging the children to be active, taking time in the day to be active and logging the activity too!
Unbelievable that in only a month we have travelled so far!!
