P.E

P.E.

In P.E. we understand the importance of keeping fit and healthy through regular exercise, however there is more to it than just running lots! This week, make sure that you use your exercise privilege every day and try and do your 'Daily Mile' in that time!

 

1. Target Bowling

Create a set of stumps you can use as a target at home. If you haven’t got any stumps you could put tape on a bin or chalk on a wall, be creative!

Bowl 10 balls at the stumps and award yourself 3 points each time you hit the stumps and 1 point for near misses.

Remember to keep your arm straight when bowling. This can be done either overarm or underarm.

2. Head, shoulders, knees, toes, catch

 

Throw a ball up in the air and touch a different body part before catching the ball.

3. Plastic bottle bowling

 

Use a tennis ball and some empty water or drinks bottles to make a bowling lane.

 

You could decorate the bottles beforehand and add number to each bottle.

Record your scores or have a family tournament.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get to Know Cambridgeshire!

Here at Middlefield, we have become ambassadors of ‘The Daily Mile’. As a school we all take part in ‘The Daily Mile’ in order to keep our bodies and minds fit and healthy!

 

What is ‘The Daily Mile’?

‘The Daily Mile’ is 15 minutes of continuous walking, jogging or running – on average in the 15 minutes children will cover a mile, hence the name!

 

Why do it?

We all know the positive effects that exercise can have on our physical wellbeing but also on our mental wellbeing. ‘The Daily Mile’ gives the children the opportunity to be active and promote that healthy lifestyle! In addition, ‘The Daily Mile’ has been shown to improve concentration and productivity of children in the classroom as they have more oxygen flowing to their brain – the more oxygen the better the learning!

 

 

This summer term, whilst we are busy home learning, we are encouraging you and your children to take a virtual tour of Cambridgeshire and learn all about its points of interest!

On the map are locations around Cambridgeshire – you can pick any location to start at. Each day, when you complete your daily mile, tally up how far you have gone and see if you can move a box forward toward your next Cambridgeshire landmark!

When you arrive at your new landmark, there is lots of research to be done – you can go online and find out some fun facts about this landmark!

 

 

Do I have to do it every day?

No you don’t! despite the name you do not have to do it every day but a minimum of 3 times a week is recommended. You can also do more than a mile in a day if you wish.

 

Can I ride my bike?

Absolutely! However make sure to use something to track your miles as you will cover more mileage per 15 mins on a bike.

 

What are you waiting for? Get out and get virtually visiting!
