The Daily Mile

DailyMile-Logo-Main-RGBThe Daily Mile started in September 2016. It was initially piloted by KS2 with KS1 joining in the second half of the Autumn term.

Our Aims:

All children will be able to run a mile by the time they leave Year 6.

Children will be physically and mentally fit.runner

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.
