100 Mile Challenge & Feet First 2018

North Lakes School have been part of Cumbria County Council’s 100 Mile challenge. This initiative encourages pupils to develop their fitness and lead a more active lifestyle. This term many pupils have scootered, run and walked many miles to and from school and in their own time. Keeping fit and healthy has been our goal, and many pupils have earned their 5, 10, 25 and 50 mile certificates. A few have really ‘pushed the boat out’ and earned their 100 mile certificate- well done! As part of Sport Relief all classes will be running a mile between lessons – it’s 6 ½ laps of the trim trail. Lots of fun in running or walking a mile will be enjoyed by all.

Remember to visit our ‘2018 100 Mile Challenge’ site on Frog, here is what to do:

  • Log onto Frog with a family member
  • Watch the short video about the benefits of leading an active life
  • Get active!  Complete the online survey with a family member
  • As you complete your miles, keep a record on your personal record card.
  • Then, you reach the various milestones, log onto the Frog forum and post a comment telling us what you did, how you felt and if you got any of your family members active too!
  • Certificates are presented in assembly every Friday.




Well done to all the children who have committed to travelling to school on foot this past term. It is lovely to see children walking, jogging and scooting to school. Children who have logged walking to school not only bag miles for the 100 mile challenge but have also been rewarded with an end of term badge. Dinosaurs are the theme this year.


With the lighter mornings, see if you can challenge yourself in the Summer term – a healthy start to the day goes a long way!
