Active HOME Week

(April 27th – May 3rd)

National ‘Active SCHOOL Week’ takes place every April and is a really enjoyable part of the school year for many children.

This year, because of COVID-19, it is not possible for this to go ahead so we are asking you to participate in the ‘Active HOME Weekchallenge instead.

We will be posting photos throughout the week of all the children getting out and getting active at home.

You can also see more of what we got up too on our twitter page. Link at the top of the screen.

Day 5 01/05/2020

Happy May Day Everyone!laughing Last day of 'Active Home Week' today and what a week it has been. Thankfully the weather stayed on our side for the most part so we could all get outside and do our 60 minutes. The 'Daily Mile' was also a big feature this week and it was great to see all of you getting involved. Keep it up!

Day 4 30/04/2020

We are having such a fun week getting Active this week and we are so lucky to have such a big forest in the local area that we can get out and run around whilst still practicing social distancing. Keeping the mind Active during this time is very important too and a good way of doing this is by playing board games.
