The Daily Mile
We have a fantastic running track on our field which we use to run 'The Daily Mile'.
Our aim is that all of our children will run on the track at last three times a week for about 10 -12mins with many completing a mile in this time.
OUR CORE PRINCIPLES
15-minute turnaround from desk to desk
100% participation including children with SEN or ASN
Children run in their school clothes
It’s not competitive, it’s social and it’s fun
It happens outside in almost all weathers
Children can run, jog or walk
It should be kept simple and uncomplicated - one mile = 7 laps of our track
Risk assess your path/track – involve the children for ‘active learning’
There’s no need to warm up, no set-up, and no tidy-up – straight outside and off they go!
