PE Activities #activeathome
Dear Parents/Carers/boys and girls,
I hope you have been enjoying all of the sunny weather we have been having, and you are keeping active by playing in the garden, walking or cycling as part of your daily exercise.
We have been exercising using the Joe Wickes workouts in school; however we found them to be a little repetitive, so we have been looking at other ways to keep active at home.
Below are links to resources and challenges:
