This morning Mr Zisaruk- Gibson launched The Legacy Challenge - a scheme designed by Inspire+ to engage children in a healthy and active lifestyle through a series of fun and exciting daily challenges. Each child will be provided with a booklet that outlines the challenges which the children will then log on completion at school. The first challenge is for them to complete a mile every day for 26 days - this can be walked, hopped, run. Our track is ideal for this as four laps equals one mile!
The challenge is supported by Inspire+ Ambassadors, some of whome we met last year. They are Paralympian Sam Ruddock, Olympian Sophie Allen, 401 Challenge runner Ben Smith, Adventurer Sarah Outen and Paralympian Jonathan Broom-Edwards.These ambassadors are very important for Legacy Challenge, because they each have created a challenge for the children to complete.
To further support and encourage active play, our year 5 children have been trained as Playground Leaders. They graduated from this programme today and were awarded Playground Leader Caps by sports coach, Jack Medley.
We look forward to celebrating the challenges and activities a and when your children complete them!
