The Daily Mile
In October 2018, Symondsbury Primary School incorporated the Daily Mile into their curriculum. A new initiative sweeping across the country in order for children to have more consistent daily exercise and combat rising childhood obesity levels. After a carefiul evaluation, and new guidance of physical activity hours publish by the government in July 2019, we decided to make the daily mile everyday and for the full 15 minutes. We also aim to spice it up by providing pupils with different activies to take part in.
We will keep this page updated on our progress and post testimonials from the children and staff about how they feel about the Daily Mile.
We have been enjoying getting involved in The Daily Mile too!
Class two have completed one week of Daily Miles (beginning 1/10/18). We are really enjoying it and have had lovely weather so far.
Here's a timelapse of us running it really fast.
