School Games Challenge - Athletics Week!
As part of your P.E at home, we are asking children to take part in the School Games Challenge, which can be completed with minimal equipment. So far there has been a basketball theme; a tennis theme and this week it's athletics. To take part, please ask an adult to sign up to the School Games website. Once logged in, you will see the various challenges that need completing and a place to enter your scores. We are aiming to have as many children as possible complete the challenge, so our school can become School Game Champions! There are even prizes to be won :)
