Daily Mile

Tuesday, 15 January 2019

Year 3 taking part in the Daily Mile

On Monday 14th January we started a new initiative in school called the Daily Mile.

The Daily Mile was developed to encourage children (and adults) to be more active in school by walking, running or jogging a mile everyday.

We have taken on this idea along with thousands of other schools in England to become more active and healthier.  Each day after either playtime or lunchtime the children walk, run or jog around the playground for approximately 15 minutes to get their hearts beating faster!

The children have really enjoyed starting the Daily Mile!
