St Matthews have started their journey on The Daily Mile this week.
The Daily Mile is a new fitness initiative, which was first established in a school in Scotland. The children (and staff!) are asked to walk, jog or run for around 10 minutes each day- no matter what the weather. The children don’t need any PE kit with them, although they are given the option of changing into trainers at the start of morning break. The children have shown great enthusiasm for this exciting new challenge and we’ll post pictures and videos of our progress in the coming weeks!
Our first batch of pictures even made the ITV local news- so hopefully our pupils are already inspiring other schools to get running!
