On Thursday 6th June, Cauldwell School in Bedford launched The Daily Mile! The launch co-incided with the school’s Heath Week, wherein the children were learning about both physical and mental health. Frankie Johnson, a Junior International Pole Vaulter who competes for the local Bedford and County Athletics Club, helped the youngest children in the school walk, jog and run their first Daily Mile, followed by all other classes.
Anna Litchfield, Cauldwell’s PE Subject Leader said, “We are delighted to be taking part in The Daily Mile. We are encouraging a whole school approach with all the children and staff getting involved. The Daily Mile sits really well with our school ethos of ‘Achievement for All’.”
The children thoroughly enjoyed getting started with The Daily Mile, and had a wonderful time with big smiles on their faces. All the classes in the school have since continued with getting out, even in the dreadful rainy days we have had recently.
