Active Mile 'Half-Term' Project Launches in Local Parks

The Active Mile

The Active Mile is an initiative that enables children of all ages and abilities to enjoy being physically active every day in schools and early years settings. It’s simple and easy to embed in everyday learning to support children’s mental and physical health and wellbeing, and can be done at any time during the school day.

At Living Sport, we have come up with a fun way of implementing The Active Mile outside of the school day, by making use of fantastic local green spaces. We have partnered up with Milton Country Park and Hinchingbrooke Country Park, to allow Primary school children the opportunity to continue to be physically active outside of the classroom and complete a Mile route at each of these parks. We have created a fun, engaging 1 mile route map for each park, which can be downloaded below.

Pupils will be able to either download a map below or take it from Milton Country Park/Hinchingbrooke Country Park reception, which has an activity log on the back. Pupils will then complete the mile route and fill in their activity log. After each half-term, pupils hand in their activity log with proof of their evidence of completion. The school will have 1-3 weeks post hand-in (deadline decided by school), to contact at Living Sport to arrange prizes.

Amazing prizes will be on offer for completion of at least x2 Active Miles completed during a half-term. Pupils will then be assigned a random number and Living Sport staff will pick a random number to win the prize. All completions will win a branded Living Sports water bottle.
