PE@ Home 2021
Come on - my St Jo's PE team!!!
We need to be doing 60 active minutes a day! Can you try this for me next week?
‘60 active minutes a day’ message recommended by the Chief Medical Officer …. it's challenging at the present time, but never more important than now.
The activities don’t have to follow rigid weekly plans or be from a digital or online platform and can be as simple as:
- a brisk walk
- a cycle ride on a safe route
- bouncing on a trampoline
- throwing a ball against a wall
- learning some skipping skills (a great way to engage and take part in the new Devon Spring Virtual Games Skipping Challenges
It is important for children to keep discovering ways to develop their physical skills, improve balance and coordination as well as maintaining essential heart health and finding fun and enjoyment in being physically active.
Let me know how you get on by sending a picture or a sentance about how active you've been to me, in an email
KEEEEEEEEEP MOVING!!! Mrs Turner
