This year we will be promoting healthier eating and physical activity to our children.
I have created our very own Blue Mile, only available to Beccles Primary Academy children!
On the playground we now have a blue line painted around it. Children will be given the opportunity during break times to complete the circuit as many times as possible; six laps is equivalent to a mile. Children will need to get their Blue Lap Counter signed by either a member of staff or a sports leader every time a lap is completed.
Children will be in competition against other classes within the school to see which class can complete the most miles within a half term, earning themselves a ‘Blue Non-Uniform Day’. Also, every time a child completes a set amount of miles, they will earn themselves a certificate which will be presented in Super Star Assemblies.
To encourage children, staff will also be taking part!
We hope that many of our children participate in this scheme. Who will be the first to complete a Blue Mile?!
