‘1 mile a day in May’- it’s the final countdown!

8 days to go…

The children, parents and staff of Woodthorpe JI School have been busy bees- being active every day in May (despite the unpredictable weather)!

Being active every day has been a wonderful chance for us to focus on the importance exercise plays in having a ‘healthy body, healthy mind’, and this has linked to our themed weeks on ‘Nature’ and ‘Walk to School’.

This event also has the bonus of being a sponsored event, and the money raised throughout this event will go towards buying high quality texts for children across the school to enjoy. We hope to broaden the genre of literature that they read and increase the diversity of authors within our school library. Please send in any sponsorship money this week, FAO Miss Owen. Spare/ additional sponsorship forms can be found here:

It’s not too late to get those miles in if you have missed a day or two. Remember, you can walk, run, scoot, cycle or move in any way you choose! (One mile is approximately a brisk 15 minute walk.)

Please send in any pictures of you being active this week as we begin our final countdown. Please email y3homeschool@woodthorpe-school.com and include in the email that you are happy for your pictures to be shown on blog/ twitter sites.
