Putting in the extra kilometres

11feb2020-fun-runTafira Infants have been participating in a Fun Run three times a week, during December and January. This is a popular initiative that has taken off in many European countries and Miss Bland has been leading the way in Tafira, with the support of the children and staff in Reception, Y1 and Y2. Staff and children head to the outside pitch and keep moving for about 15 minutes with the aim of reaching a distance of a kilometre; this can be sprinting, walking or jogging.

The children are learning how to both pace themselves and push themselves. They are very proud when they keep moving for the entire time! The idea is that they each aim to improve on their personal best.

On Monday 27ᵗʰ, we counted how many laps (each comprising roughly 200m) each child completed. Almost all of the children in Y1 and Y2 managed a kilometre and in total those children ran a total of just over 60km! This is going to become a regular part of the timetable in Infants - well done to all involved!
