Outdoor Classroom Day and 21:21 Walk
11th May 2018
We will be particpating in 21:21 walk on Thursday 17th May 2018.
Children will walk one mile in their own playgrounds. This ties in with World Outdoor Classroom Day which is on May 17th and it links in also with the Daily Mile initiative in which all schools are being encouraged to participate. Such an activity improves fitness and healthy weight, whilst encouraging children to be aware of their health. It is fully inclusive as every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability can succeed at The Daily Mile.
It would take approximately 15 minutes for the children to walk 1 mile and this exercise in a natural ‘outdoor classroom’ environment can rapidly improve self-esteem, relieve stress and anxiety, and can create happiness along with their friends.
