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 there 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...
The Sheriffs Challenge is a new challenge that links with our Robin Hood Mile. The City Mayor has challenged all City schools to cumulatively Walk, Jog or Run around the world which equates to a staggering 25,000 Miles. The great thing about the Sheriffs Challenge is the fact other City schools will be taking part and gives an opportunity to compete virtually against other schools. Who will top the leader board?
