Well done to all of our pupils and their parents who came into school and joined our morning mile run this morning. It was really great to see so many parents and grandparents with their running shoes on supporting their children.

This term, children from PCJS will join thousands of other children taking part in 2018 Marathon Challenge organised by The School Run. (www.ukschoolrun.com)

 

Promoting physical activity is currently high on the government’s agenda given the increasing rates of obesity amongst our younger population. Last September, the much publicised sugar tax started to provide schools with a £415 million levy to invest further in school sport and increase levels physical activity and promote healthy lifestyles.

 

At Pickering Junior School we recognise the importance of promoting regular physical activity and so have decided to embrace this exciting marathon challenge.

 

The aim of the challenge is simple – run a total of 26.219 miles throughout the summer term. This will of course not be in one go, but instead spread out across the term through regular sessions of physical activity. When the marathon distance is completed, they will be presented with a medal as recognition of their amazing achievement. They will then be able to confidently say to their friends and family that they have ‘run a marathon.’

As part of our marathon running term we are tracking how well each class and the school as a whole are doing, these are the final distances. Well done to all of our classes.
