It has been great to see the children all having a go at running a mile around our playground today to raise money for the NSPCC. A mile is approximately 11 laps of our playground, and whilst we didn’t have any Dina Asher-Smiths, we did have lots and lots of children who showed great determination to complete their mile!
Running helps young people to sleep better, improves their mood, and boosts their ability to focus. We already have some talented athletes who run regularly for clubs or with other family members. What a great way to have fun, stay fit and, of course, reduce the amount of ‘screen time’.
Well done to everyone who took part today, and thank you for your donations. The work that the NSPCC do is invaluable – the assemblies and workshops we have had this term are free, so the charity needs as much financial support as schools can give them to be able to continue to send their volunteers into schools and local communities.
