Mile a Day

Here at Oldmixon we strive for every child to be given opportunities to access physical activity. Since 2018, we have introduced the 'mile a day'. Children from all year groups participate and children show great enjoyment whilst participating. 


We aim to reach a 'mile a day' by walking around the playground or the MUGA. We do this for 10 minutes between 10:40 and 10:50. Children have the freedom to run, walk or jog. As well as the children, all adults from the school take part. Although it's main objective is to provide physical activity, it has allowed social skills to develop, as while children are walking, they are engaging in conversation with eachother or members of staff. 

You are able to sign up and enjoy lots of different activities from the daily mile, to do so, please follow this link:
