Our latest school wide activity challenged the children to run or walk 1km per day for two weeks. The aim was to get the students as fit as possible for our Active School Week which started yesterday. The run took ten minutes to do and the children had the choice of running around the courts 8 times or doing 3 laps of the field.
Focus: the main aim was for the kids to enjoy this activity and to see ‘being active’ as a positive thing. Encouragement and praise was important as we are trying to promote the importance of leading an active lifestyle.
Healthy bodies lead to healthy minds!
