All children from Nursery through to Year 6 will run, walk or jog for 15 minutes a day. In this time some will do a mile, some more than a mile and some a little less.
Children walk, jog or run with their classmates in the safety of their own playground. Everyone has fun taking part - it is not P.E. and it is not competitive - while building fitness, relationships, confidence and resilience.
Back in the classroom, it helps children to focus and, as with all physical activity, contributes towards raising attainment. Importantly, it also meets the needs of childhood – all provided in a golden 15 minutes – which can be summed up as:
Fun, Friends, Fresh air and Freedom; and, of course, Fitness comes with the territory.
