You are all so wonderful and enthusiastic in PE that I have no doubt that sport is helping to keep you and your family sane during these Home Learning days!?
There is so much online to inspire everyone to do something at the moment. Have you had a go at......
Post box challenge
Now that we are able to get out and about a bit more I thought it might be good to have a reason to go out walking and exploring. As well as making the most of the amazing weather and improving your serotonin levls (sunshine) I would like you all to go for a walk with your family and see what post boxes you can find!
What I didn't know was that each post box tells you who was King or Queen at the time that it was installed. The above picture shows you the different Royal symbols that you need to look for. Good luck and happy hunting!!
18-24th May is Mental Health Awareness Week. I am sending some Home Learning to all of you with some information to read and some challenges to have a go at.
School Games (the Organisation that sort out all school sports competitions!) have put together virtual competitions and of course I would love us to win.........or at least take part!!
Please visit www.yourschoolgames.com
There are lots of resources which have been made freely available...................look under Coronavirus Support.
Get permission to download the TopYa! app so you can get involved in the virtual competitions which will be posted out every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The invite code once you have downloaded the app is 23880.
Please tell us if you have been taking part and I will update you all on my progress as I have a go!
Secondly, did you know it would have been the London Marathon this Sunday (26th April)?
The British Heart Foundation have set up the '2.6 Challenge' in order to raise money for UK charities.
They are asking people to dream up fundraisin activities based around the numbers 2.6 and 26 (the marathon is 26 miles long)!!
So if you fancy having a go, get physical and do some fundraising please visit the British Heart Foundation website and check out the 2.6 Challenge. Once again, keep school posted on anything you do and achieve!!!
PE with Joe Wicks (youtube.com/thebodycoach) Monday-Friday 9am
Dance with Oti Mabuse (youtube.com/otimabuseofficial) Monday-Friday 11.30am
Disco Dion every day on youtube at 4pm, plus a family disco session on a Saturday night!
However, I have taught you all the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. Now is the time to be really sensible and have carefully planned days that keep you all happy and healthy (work hard and play hard!!). Make sure you stick to normal sensible bedtimes, eat your 5-a-day fruit and veg and get fresh air and exercise at least once a day.
Challenge: ensure you drink 1.5-2 litres of water every day
Challenge: go outside and notice how spring is here. Sometimes it's not about the exercise just breathe in fresh air and appreciate being outside the house! Spot different flowers, look at the different blossoms and buds on the trees. My guinea pigs are loving hand-picked grass and dandelions!! Help with some gardening.
Challenge: a test for reactions (hand eye coordination) and brain training!.......
You have to remove the numbers from 1 to 50 by touching on your screen in the correct sequence from 1through to 50. (when you touch number 1 it will then disappear and another number will fill its place). Scoring: 10-19secs = impossible 20-29secs = liar 30-39secs = you're special 40-59secs = expert 60-79secs = normal 80-99 = you're getting old 100+secs = you are old!
I scored 38.1secs!!!!!
One last idea for you all....................A lot of our sports competitions take place at Avon Valley College. The School Games Organiser has asked me to tell parents that there are lots of daily sports challenges on the AVSSP facebook page.
Another great website to try is imoves.com. They have loads of fun exercises, spot the difference puzzles, active maths and many, many, many more activities to get you through the days!!! Just go to the link below.......
If you are in need of workout for the younger ones how about joining CBeebies and 'Andy's Wild Workouts'.
Go to the CBeebies website and join Andy as he travels the world to amazing places and learns to move like the animals he meets on his wild adventure.
How about another challenge: "Can you draw the prefect circle?"
I managed 98%!!
