Keeping Active!

The importance of keeping active for our health and mental wellbeing.

This lockdown is definitely more dark and dreary than the first one in March. During the summer it felt easy to get outside; we were able to have running challenges, to play games outside and when we had finished work we still had hours of daylight!

However it is important to keep active, and whilst it may not always be possible to get outside there are plenty of other ideas that will help you to keep active. I thought it might be useful to collate some ideas here – and, whilst it may not be possible to recreate PE lessons at home, your class teachers over the next few weeks will be setting some home challenges to give your family a bit of a movement focus- and there will be a few links shared on facebook.

You can also try some dance classes at home – Oti Mabuse has some fabulous ‘Kids Dance Classes’ on her You Tube site.

The aim here is just to have some fun – keep your spirits up – and remind our children how important it is to keep fit and how much better it can feel when you are active! Take a look at some of the links below.
