At CHL we take part in The Daily Mile initiative - all pupils from Year 1 upwards are encouraged to walk, jog or run with their classmates in the safety of the playground. Everyone has fun taking part - it is not P.E. and it is not competitive. Children are able to build relationships, confidence and resilience. This can be summed up in the 5 F's.
Fitness- Children become more aware of a healthy lifestyle.
Fresh air- Children thrive on the sights, sounds and seasons.
Friends- Children use the language of friendship to support each other, improving their social and leadership skills.
Fun- Children enjoy taking part- this is what makes The Daily Kilometre so successful.
Focus- Daily physical activity helps children concentrate in the classroom and is proven to raise attainment.
