The Daily Mile

running_trackStaying with the sporting theme, your children may have mentioned the Daily Mile to you this week. To tie in with this summer’s Olympics, each class (and their teachers and teaching assistants!) have been challenged to increase their activity levels by walking or running a mile each day – this is equivalent to 8 laps of the field.

The Daily Mile initiative started earlier this school year in Scotland and has had some remarkable effects on the energy and concentration levels of the pupils taking part, and we are hoping we will see some similarly positive results … watch this space for updates … and lets hope the constant showers start to die out for the rest of the term!
