Our giant footprint track is proving just as popular as ever after the summer break. The track marks a 500 metre track around our school and the boys make the most of it whenever they can, knowing that four laps marks one kilometre.
Running is a simple way to build fitness and the benefits of running in schools are evidence based. For us, the emphasis is on fun rather than speed. If children enjoy this activity, they are more likely to stick with it.
And, as our photos testify, Mr Ryan's class were having lots of fun last week!
