London Landmark Tracker
Support the London Marathon by using our new London Landmark resource.  Capture the enthusiasm of the London Marathon with your children by doing a tour of London’s famous landmarks. The A3 map has 17 landmarks, so takes 6  weeks (a half-term) if you do The Daily Mile 3 times a week. Just  tick off a location each day in order to complete a loop of London’s famous landmarks. Download the London Landmarks Tracker.

Why not add in your own intra-school challenge using the resource, i.e. which class does the most miles whilst visiting the landmarks?

The Daily Mile Assembly Resource
This is a game based interactive resource, ideal for introducing The Daily Mile to the children!  It also includes a link to the county video of The Daily Mile with Paralympian Lauren Steadman. Download Living Sport Children’s Assembly.

The Daily Mile Certificates
These have been created by The Daily Mile Foundation and are a great incentive for children and can be edited for 7 different categories:

  • Most Enthusiastic Pupil
  • Most Determined Pupil
  • Most Supportive Pupil
  • Most Improved Pupil
  • Most Dedicated Pupil
  • Most Sociable Pupil

 They can be downloaded here, as well as at www.thedailymile.co.uk

The Daily Mile Core Principles

The Daily Mile Refresh Ideas
Want some fresh ideas around The Daily Mile to give your staff and children a boost? These concept ideas can be dipped into as and when needed.

The Daily Mile Christmas Challenge –  Laps to Lapland
This an exciting new resource in the countdown to Christmas to support The Daily Mile.  Track the journey from your school to Lapland using the resources provided. Get your reindeer back to the North Pole in time for Christmas!

How does it work?
Simply search how many miles it is from your school to Lapland – don’t worry if it seems impossible!
With the simple formula below, everyone can get there using their ‘map-miles’ equivalent. Get your children to help work it out:
(a)    Miles from school to Lapland
(b)   Number of school days left in the term
(c)    a / b = the number of ‘Map Miles’ that each Daily Mile counts for  (1 collective Daily Mile completed = 1 map-mile)
(d)   Set as a school or a class challenge

The Resources
- An electronic version of the ‘Laps to Lapland’ wall map to print to the size of your choice, with space to put in milestones along the way. Download Laps to Lapland Map.
– Santa’s Instruction Card for the children and a separate electronic reindeer to be named by the children & move up the map as Daily Miles are completed. Download Laps to Lapland info and reindeer.

The Daily Mile Calendar
The Foundation has created a fabulous Daily Mile Calendar for all schools that are registered to The Daily Mile, which you are able to download here. Living Sport have also created an A2 sized laminate dry wipe version of this calendar which we will be delivering to schools this term and hope that you will find this a useful and interactive resource.
