    Active Home Week Thursday

    Tell it Spell it Thursday’.

    Hi Everyone, Big thanks to those of you sending in photos and videos of yourselves keeping busy and doing lots of active stuff this week. We are loving them and will be putting together a nice collage at the end of this all so keep them coming.

    How did you all get on with the Reaction Time Challenge? My number was 33 and I think I pulled a muscle….whoops!

    Our challenge today is ‘Spell your Name PE’. You will see the document below. It shows the alphabet a-z but beside each letter is an exercise. If you have a short or easy name then you can add your surname. By the way….the letter J is a killer…be warned those of you with J in your name.

    Here is a photo of a Scavenger Hunt that we did, all items from the back garden. From 10 down to 1….. why not give it a go! Or make your very own obstacle course with whatever you find at home/ in the garden and send us you’re a photo of your one.

    Best of luck – don’t forget to snap and share!

    Don’t forget Joe Wicks extremely energetic session every morning at 9am live or catch him later in the day either at PE with Joe.

    Enjoy your Thursday!

    Hi everyone!. Well done to everyone for taking on our Active Home challenges. We have loved seeing your pictures and videos, keep them coming. Here is an extra set of challenges for anyone that can't wait for tomorrows challenge.


    Active Home Week Wed

    'Work it out Wednesday’.

    Boys and Girls today we are testing your reaction times. Place 4 items around you, make a square shape. Someone in the room sets a 60 second timer and calls an item. The idea is that you have to touch it as fast as you can. You must touch as many as you can in the 60 seconds. Post your number on Seesaw. I will be posting mine later – just have to do my stretches first.

    You can make it harder by including more items and widen the space if you have it. Let us know how you did it.

    Best of luck – don’t forget to snap and share!

    Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

    Active Home Week Tuesday

    posted May 5, 2020, 2:20 AM by Owen Breslin

    Good Morning Everyone,

    Hope you got on well with yesterdays challenge and more importantly that you enjoyed it. If you have any ideas or activities you would like to share please do. We would love to see you get active at home enjoying the outdoors. Send a note, a photo or video to Seesaw and share with your class/school. We love to hear from you.

     

    Todays activity is;   

    ‘Tough it out Tuesday’

     

    Get into a plank position with some blocks, tins of beans, peas or anything you can find at home to build a pyramid with. Place these to one side so there’s room to build the pyramid in front of you.

    While you are in your plank position you must try to build a pyramid. It’s tough. You can use both hands alternatively to lift the blocks/ tins to make the pyramid.

    To make it a little easier you could build a small pyramid. Those of you who are very strong and much fitter than I am build a bigger one. Have a look at the video for a demonstration. We can’t wait to see your pyramids.

    Enjoy

    Please snap and share!
