The Daily Mile
All children will be able to run a mile by the time they leave Year 6.
Children will be more resilient and have a positive attitude towards health and fitness.
How does it work?
The children will be walking, jogging or running for 15 minutes each day around the new all-weather track running around our playground and field.
Over the summer holidays the all-weather track was installed around the school field and continuing the path around the tarmac playground. The combined length will mean 5 laps is equivalent to 1 mile. It has proven to be a huge success so far this term, as illustrated in the Word Cloud below made up of children’s comments about the Daily Mile.
The images below show the new track and children enjoying their first taste of the Daily Mile.
