Are you signed up for the Daily Mile?
Do you know about the Daily Mile? Is this something you could incorporate in to your daily activities with your children to help meet the target of 180 minutes of physical activity a day for children under five?
The Daily Mile, despite its name, is not a set distance, but just 15 minutes a day, outside, with each child walking, running or jogging at their own pace with their friends, making them fitter, healthier and more able to concentrate in the classroom.
The Daily Mile introduces daily physical activity outside and removes all barriers to participation as it is free and simple.
If you are interested in the Daily Mile, you can sign up or read the case studies available which may inspire you to become involved.
There are also a variety of resources available on their website including set up guidance, letters to parents and videos.
Herts Sports Partnership, with the help of Hertfordshire teachers and children, has created a short video on why they think the Daily Mile works.
