Robin Hood Mile
The Robin Hood Mile is a really simple way to measure the fitness of children throughout the course of a school year as well as promoting other key factors including healthy lifestyles, community engagement and competition.
Pupils get the opportunity to run around the track that is marked on the school field, the track measures 297 Metres Approximately, Completing 6 Laps of the track equates to 1 Mile. Pupils are encouraged to run the Robin Hood Mile in their spare time and during PE as a warm up. Pupils laps are recorded and over the course of the school year pupils are able to see how many miles they have ran. Throughout the school their can be added competition with classes running the most miles in a month and even year, Pupils are able to compete against others and even themselves to achieve personal bests.
Most importantly at Robin Hood we want children to be understand the need to be active and at the same time enjoy being active. Hopefully the Robin Hood Mile will achieve this and much more...
Robin Hood Community Mile
As a school this year we have followed on from the great success of our fitness initiative the Robin Hood Mile. We have now introduced the Robin Hood Mile to our schools community. This new initiative is to engage parents and carers to come along with their children and Run, Jog or Walk our Robin Hood Mile Track every Thursday. This Community Mile takes place after school from 3:30pm on the school field. The challenge we have set parents and pupils is to be able to run, jog or walk a marathon (26 Miles).
There are so many positive for taking part in the Robin Hood Community Mile, these include having time to socialise with family and friends and also helps to maintain or build fitness.
