Welcome to our resources section of The Daily Mile. These are only available for download to registered schools in the county.  They are designed to support your delivery and development of The Daily Mile.

LATEST RESOURCE - Destinations Resource

Whatever your journey looks like this year, let The Daily Mile Destinations help you along the way, keeping pupils, fit, focussed and flourishing - the journey is in your hands.  You can start at any time, there are 100 days to complete.  15 minutes each day, 15 countries to visit and 15 stickers for your class to collect.  Enjoy the journey!

These resources are all downloadable here

We also have 50 Destinations Resource Packs which contain the key resources to start you off (pack includes an A1 school poster, class passports, fact sheets and stickers).  Individual destination fact sheets and certificates can be downloaded.  Please contact [email protected] or click here to request.

‘Get to Know Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’ Series

Learn about your local area through our new ‘Get to Know Series’ of resources, which use virtual Landmark Maps of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to find out about points of interest within the area. They come complete with a supporting Factsheet for children (and families) to do as an individual challenge or motivator.  Share this with the children at home as well as with the children still in school.   Each time children run, jog or walk a mile they tick off a box on the map to the next landmark.  During the leg to each local landmark the children are encouraged to find out more about it and write 2 of these facts down on the factsheet.   Both are designed to take 30 days, if a child does a mile each day – so a half-term at least.

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 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.
