Mr Windram's Daily PE Challenge
We don’t need a gym to be active and have fun – all we need is a place to play and a few ideas for games. Everyone, especially Children love to play, and it’s a great way to get everyone up and about, having fun and staying healthy. From football in the park to building a den with a cardboard box, play is great for children’s emotional, social and physical development. Playing together is a great way to be active as a family. It burns energy and helps everyone maintain a healthy weight – reducing their risk of serious illnesses like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer in later life. It is the best way for activity to take place during our lockdown time especially as we do not know how long this is going to take Playing active games can also help children and young people to:
• develop their imagination.
• improve their self-confidence.
• learn about risk.
Each week, a series of challenges will appear designed specifically by our very own Mr Windram! Please encourage your children to participate and upload photographs to their Tapestry / Seesaw accounts.
