The Daily Mile

Article 31: You have the right to play and rest.

We are proud to be part of The Daily Mile.

The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.

The Daily Mile is a social activity, where the children and staff run or jog – at their own pace – in the fresh air with their friends. Children can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes. It has been found to improve not only the children’s fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing.

Parents in Sports Week

Parents were invited to join in our Daily Mile. The children ran their fastest mile yet…even outrunning the parents and adults who joined them!

Marla the Star #DailyMileHeroes

To end the #DailyMileHeroes week Bumble Bee class had a very special visitor…Marla the star! The children and Marla loved being superheroes to run the daily mile in the wet, rainy weather.

Daily Mile Heroes

We are taking part in the Daily Mile Heroes campaign this week. Today we tracked the number of lengths to reach a mile and we all persevered to run, jog and walk as fast as we could. It was 21 lengths of the 4G pitch, some of us managed to do 24!!

Happy Days Nursery

Happy Days Nursery children and staff joined us for a week to run, walk or jog the Daily Mile as part of there Sports Relief work. We had lots of fun working together and encouraging each other to persevere!

A rainy, windy daily mile…

Even in the wind and rain Bumble Bee class persevered to run, walk or jog the daily mile. The children were great at encouraging each other to keep going when they were feeling tired and even gave their friends a helping hand along the way.

Our first daily mile!

Every day we will be walking, running or jogging the daily mile around our 4G pitch. Bumble Bee class did a great job today for their first Daily Mile!
