Finchale Fitness Explained...
To get our pupils active we have introduced "Finchale Fitness" and this will replace afternoon break. Pupils will be physically active for 10 minutes around a special predetermined route. Our children will work at their own level of fitness but will be rewarded for showing progress. We will encourage our children to continue for the whole 10 minutes at their pace with the idea of increasing the distance travelled over a period of time.
This firstly supports the health and well being of our children and also follows advice that children should be doing 60 minutes of vigorous physical activity per day. As a school we have been asked by Government to provide 30 minutes of this activity each day.
A Finchale Fitness Reward System will be based on points and certificates will be awarded:
Bronze 1, 2 and 3
Silver 1, 2 and 3
Gold 1, 2 and 3
Platinum 1, 2 and 3
There will also be monthly awards for each class:
Runner of the Month
Most Improved Runner
