To celebrate our success at gaining the ‘SOUTH YORKSHIRE SPORT, CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE AWARD‘, Mr Little has been working with each class, from Foundation through to Year 6, on our ‘Daily Mile’. Despite the cool temperatures, each class took part in a series of challenges within their Daily Mile. The day was designed to incorporate skills that will develop their abilities within sport such as; balance, coordination, stamina, speed, acceleration, mental strength, will power and tactics as well as the fact that if we can have children that are active on a daily basis, their fitness will improve.
‘It was nice to work with all the children throughout school and see the enjoyment on their faces, but even more so, the blushing cheeks and heavy breathing alongside the smiles’. Mr Little
