Visit from Arctic Quest

3rd March 2020
As part of our whole school topic 'The Frozen North', today we had a visit from Vickie Pullen and her dogs. Vickie is the leading female sled dog racer in the UK, holding multiple top 15 World Rankings. She competes sprint in 4 dog rig/sled, 2 dog scooter and 1 dog bike. She is the only British racer to hold a sprint World Cup standing on the sled. 
Vickie spoke about difference types of racing dogs, how she started and has progressed with her sled racing and, of courses, all about her dogs! Everyone enjoyed listening to how she has persevered in her sport and also meeting some of the dogs. Thank you Vickie for such an inspiring day.
