Active minutes – Mile a Day

This week has seen a fabulous start to Class 3’s Mile a Day. Come rain or shine (sometimes even snow), Class 3 have battled the elements to make sure that they are as active as they can be. The Mile a Day idea stems from the Government’s Obesity Strategy and their advice for pupils to be raising their heart rate for an additional 30 minutes per day which is additional to PE lessons. There is certainly a buzz in the air in Class 3!


Today Class 3 embarked upon their journey to space for their new topic ‘Stargazers’.

As part part of their learning, they were comparing planets, their relative sizes and how they move relative to the sun.
