A Mile a Day...keeps the doctor away!
We're delighted to announce that The Weald Primary School will be making the most of our extensive grounds this week, and encouraging the whole school to walk or run a whole mile every day. It's Walk to School Week, and we're aware that as a a school a lot of our children come from neighbouring villages and would struggle to walk to school each day. So instead we're going to make the most of the nice weather, and get out for a stroll in our grounds. The Daily Mile has all sorts of benefits... here are the five Fs.
Fitness - children become more aware of a healthy lifestyle.
Fresh air - children thrive on 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 which is what makes the Daily Mile so successful.
Focus - daily physical activity helps children concentrate in the classroom and is proven to improve attainment.
