I hope everyone is staying safe and well at this challenging time. Thankfully the good weather came just in time so hopefully the boys and girls have been able to get outdoors and be active. I’m sure many of you have also be tuning into Joe Wicks or the many other ‘keep active’ ideas that have emerged on social media. To continue working on the areas of core strength, balance, co-ordination and visual skills over the weeks ahead it would be great if the boys and girls could do some of these exercises. Regular practice for short intervals is shown to be most effective (10 minutes per day for example). Most of these exercises have been practised in class and we will build on them a little every week. Siblings could join in to make the exercises more fun and interesting. I have also included a folder of ideas from ‘super troopers’, the LAYA Healthcare initiative introduced to schools in 2019. They may be useful to you and your families over the weeks ahead. Some have a ‘seasonal’ twist that you will have to ignore and the current restrictions will need to be kept in mind (3Km now needs to be 2km, etc.)
Please feel free to contact me on email@example.com if you have any concerns or queries that I may be able to help with.
