Round-the-World Week 4: 4430 Kms travelled!

A big thank you to everyone who is taking part in our Round-the-World Challenge. Last week we went 1178Km kilometres further as a school. That makes the total distance we have gone an amazing 4430 Kms. That’s far enough to take us from Cambridge-London-Paris-Rome-Athens-Istanbul and then to the Pyramids in Giza, Egypt!

Banana Woman has recently been sighted by the Pyramids, but is she still here? Keep your eyes peeled St Matthew’s…
