Active Life, Active Mind
At Whiston our vision is for every child to lead an active lifestyle and for this to become embedded into their daily life. We believe every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity daily and become more physically confident and competent. We hope that, through all the sporting opportunities and physical activity we offer, the children will potentially develop a love and passion for sport and continue out of school and into their later lives.
The Daily Mile
As you may be aware Whiston have started to run a daily mile and are now proud owners of a track! The Daily Mile is a social activity, wherein the children run or jog – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends for 10 minutes every day, with the goal of running a mile or further. We believe this will make the children fitter, healthier and happier. Statistics also show that more active children make better progress in the classroom.
For more information on the daily mile see: https://thedailymile.co.uk/note-for-parents-and-carers/
As well as being active outside we are also doing active learning in the classroom using the Super Movers and Go Noodle websites to get children active when learning, why not try these websites at home? The children love them!
To support us with this, please send your child in sensible shoes or trainers to make it easier for them to participate.
