London Fields Primary School

Race to Health at Home 2020: Evaluation Update

From Monday 11th May to Sunday 24th May 2020 London Fields Primary School took part in London’s Race to Health at Home 20 challenge.

Pupils and their families recorded their physical activity minutes to collect personal points, medals and certificates online and achieving the collective school goal of becoming Race to Health Champions.

The 2020 edition theme followed Max’s magical journey from his bedroom in Maurice Sendak’s classic Where the Wild Things Are.  Each minute of physical activity families did, were converted into miles and contribute to their class and schools’ total, helping Max get back in time for his supper whilst it’s still hot!  


London Fields Primary School logged 42,811 physical activity minutes and completed 44 miles of the Race to Health ending up 2nd place in the total minutes table and 3rd place in the average minutes per family leader board for Hackney Schools. Year 3 were our most active year group, logging a total of 9,506 active minutes!


Well done everyone who took part, we did so well collectively and it was only our first time trying it out!


‘Woooaahhh we’re (over) half way there’  (you sang it, didn’t you!?)


Congratulations London Fields Primary  we are doing a great job so far, less than one week to go! We are currently 15th in the race with a total of 22,296 active minutes logged. Well done Cooke Class, you are STILL leading the way as the most active with Kanneh-Mason Class in second place.


As well as our active games attached, if you are keen for a bit of quiet time at home during the working week why not check out Cosmic Yoga which has loads of free kids yoga videos to follow online between 5 and 30 minutes long.

Email your year group email to be sent it and let's stay active! 

This year we have been invited to take part in the 'Race To Health'. Usually, Hackney schools aren't included so we are very lucky! It is an initiative to encourage children of all ages to stay as active as possible, even with schools being closed. As a result, they have set up a special two-week challenge starting on Monday May 11th, following the theme of "Where The Wild Things Are'. There are certificates for all pupils who really get involved and a prize for the most active school! Please request your child's login details by emailing your year group email.
