This term we are launching our 10-minute challenge, whereby all children will be attempting to jog or run continuously for 10 minutes without stopping, during their PE lessons.

The aim is to build up their stamina and fitness over the coming weeks to enable them to complete the challenge without stopping.

They will be timed each week to see how long they can run before they have to stop. This information will then be used to help children track their progress.

It is not a race, but a personal challenge for each child. A similar programme is already established at our other Federated schools and has proved to be a great success and is now being rolled out here at St.Mary’s.

Healthy Body = Healthy Mind – why not try this at home and get active as a Family  and put yourselves to the test!
