January 2017 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

A Mile A Day: We have already started this ‘Daily Mile’ initiative with Year 6 and are now extending this to all Key Stage 2 Years 3 – 6. This is not an extension of playtime but an effort to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of children through a short burst of physical activity.  Mental wellbeing is as important as physical.  10 laps around the playground is a mile Children do not have to run their laps but will be encouraged to walk briskly if not running.  A time in the day has been allocated to each class.  New Year:  A time to get minds and bodies active and create a sense of wellbeing.
