Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Striding out for the Daily Mile

Year 5 are sprinting into spring by taking part in a nationwide challenge called the Daily Mile! We will be spending 15 minutes each afternoon walking or jogging around the playground, as part of a scheme to get children moving and active.

We learnt this week that in 15 minutes of running/walking, 50% of us would be expected to cover a mile, and some would go even further. Our teachers are joining in, and as well as a fun time for chatting and socialising, we can be out in nature and get fitter in the process.

We are enjoying it a lot so far - and it links perfectly with our new book for the term: Harry Miller's Run.

This is an illustrated story that explores a friendship between a young boy and an old man who reminisces about running from Newcastle to South Shields when he was "a reet lad". Now he is a "daft old maddled gadgie".

Can anyone remember what these Geordie expressions mean?

We did online research about the Great North Run - who can impress us with some facts they remember?
