Health & Wellbeing Challenges

Hello Everyone,

As you know May/June are usually our most active months at Milton Primary School. We have Sports Day, Health Week and usually lots of other opportunities to get out on trips and outings to support our Health and Wellbeing learning.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we will be denied lots of these opportunities but the staff at Milton Primary and Nursery have been getting their thinking caps on and we have a little Health and Wellbeing Challenge for you all to take part in throughout the month of June.

Life after ‘Lockdown’

Start a little jar in your house called ‘Life after Lockdown’. Each school day in June encourage your child to add something to it that they’d really like to do when we have a bit more freedom. Staff will also be sharing theirs to give you some ideas.

5KM a Week

We know lots of you have been getting out and about during lockdown. It’s great that we can now exercise more than once a day.We challenge all children at Milton Primary School and Nursery to run, walk or cycle 5KM a week (That’s only 1KM a day). Please prove your child has done so by sending a screenshot of your fit bit record, phone step counter, strava etc to Mrs Martin. If you don’t have any of these devices/apps available just send an e-mail to Mrs Martin to let her know your child has taken part. We hope to be able to reward every child who takes part with something – all will be revealed.Email address:

‘In House Challenges’

Each week in June, we will post five Health and Wellbeing challenges (that’s only one a day), along with accompanying demonstration videos/photos (if appropriate), to the blog for all families to take part in. The idea is that we keep children active and get all families involved while having a bit of fun. You should encourage a friendly competition in your house but not all are competitive.Please send some photographs to Mrs Christie – – if you are able.Class teachers will not be providing any additional Health and Wellbeing tasks during the month of June to allow the children to dedicate their time to these challenges.

Good Luck, I look forward to sharing your good work.
