As well as having Euro Football fever at St Dominic’s, we are also joining Camden’s Race to Health!!
Race to Health is an online physical activity challenge for primary and secondary school children that encourages them to participate in daily physical activity. The aim is to increase the number of children that are meeting the physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes per day. This year’s race is themed around the Summer 2021 Olympics taking place in Tokyo.
Next week your child will receive log in details from their class teacher and will be encouraged to log in to the website regularly both at school and at home to record their daily physical activity. Each minute of physical activity equates to distance in miles and collectively the physical activity minutes accumulated by pupils at your child’s school will help the school move along the route and edge closer to the finish line.
Schools will be competing to be the first in Camden to make it back to the finish line in Tokyo, while classes will be competing against each other to be the most active.
Each week, your child will be eligible to win a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal in three areas; participation, improvement and time. Participation relates to how often your child enters their physical activity data, improvement relates to increases in physical activity levels for that week compared to the previous week and time relates to how close they are to achieving the recommended 60 minutes of activity per day.
More details about how to Log on will be sent next week……
