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.

Get to Know Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
 Series (in school or at home)

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.  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.
