What is your advice about? Daily Mile in the EYFS…so much more than exercise.

  1. Walk briskly with stops to teach or allow others to catch up. Go out dressed appropriately whatever the weather and change your lead pair daily so you get to chat with everyone in the class regularly.
  2. There is no better way to learn the knowledge and vocabulary of the seasonal cycle than a daily mile in your local park. It’s a real-time, rich and meaningful experience.
  3. Classification can be taught year round.
  4. The mile can begin/end with book time or just a minute or two listening to birds or the wind in the trees.
  5. Daily Mile builds in a slice of regular exercise that sets the foundations for healthy living. Children can learn about road safety and the geography of their local areas too.
