The Daily Mile
Every day in school Year One run the Daily Mile and it is really important that you keep up this wonderful fitness while you are at home for the net two weeks isolating. I love running and am going to try and incorporate this into my daily routine by running in my garden every day. This will keep me fit and healthy as well as helping my mental health. I would love all of the children to join in with me so I am going to set them a special active challenge over the next two weeks. I challenge all the children to try and run or walk a mile every day in your gardens. Running is so good for your body and fitness and it s a completely free activity to do, plus I promise you it makes you feel so good after! Just make sure you either post photos or videos on your blog of you running your mile so I can give you lots of house points- I really encourage you to try and run the mile but if you are struggling, you can walk, as long as it is a brisk pace! !

PE at Home
One of our PE co-ordinators, Mrs Lay has launched a brand new initiative called 'PE at Home.' Mrs Lay has been very busy working with other PE teachers to create PE lessons that you can complete at home! She has set up a Twitter account and she would love to see you completing some of the challenges! Each week, she will upload a new PE resource card that you can use at home. This is very exciting and provides you all with another way of keeping active. I have added these to the website so that you can access them to help you keep fit and healthy- they will be found underneath this text.
However you can also download the packs and resource cards yourself. If your parents use Twitter, get them to follow @PEatHome1 and share photos of you doing the activities so that Mrs Lay can see what you've been up to. I know she'd love to see you using the resources that they are providing for you. To encourage you to get active and to share, I am offering 20 HOUSE POINTS for anyone that posts photos and videos of Mrs Lay's PE lessons on the Y1 Blog!
Let's get active Year 1!
