    Race to Health at Home – Where the Wild Things Are (11 to 24 May 2020)
    Race to Health is an award winning online physical activity challenge that can help encourage physical activity at home for children and their families. Normally run over five weeks during summer term, we’ve made some adaptations for 2020 so that, in addition to remaining suitable for children of key workers attending school, pupils and families who are home learning can take part. These adaptions include:

    • Shorter race – Two weeks
    • Family Log-in – Everyone in the home can record their active minute under one pupil log-in
    • Updated activity list – To reflect activities pupils will be able to do at home, including PE with Joe and #DailyMileatHome
    • Total minutes – The winning class and school will be the one with the highest total active minutes completed
    • More regular updates – 3x weekly updates on your school’s progress, including activity ideas to send home to families
    • London-wide race – As well as competing to be Camden Race to Health at Home Champion, you’ll also be competing to become London’s overall winner going against schools from Islington, Redbridge, Southwark and 20 other schools across the city.

    This year’s race route follows Max’s magical journey from his bedroom in Maurice Sendak’s classic Where the Wild Things Are. Each minute of physical activity pupils and their families do will be converted into miles and contribute to their class and your whole school’s total, helping Max get back in time for his supper whilst it’s still hot!
