Keeping fit !
At school we've been enjoying the Joe Wicks work outs every week day at 9:00am. They are really easy to follow and are certainly keeping us fit and healthy in the hall. We recommend have a go at these, you can even post your before and after pics or have a go at making your own routines for your teacher and friends to follow !
If you're more into your dancing, then 'Go Noodle' is still free to register with and they release new dances each week to learn as well as Yoga and fitness workouts.
Imoves has also made its school lessons plans, music files and ideas section TOTALLY FREE for the duration of COVID19. It's a really useful resource website with lots and lots of ideas. There's even a Great Fire of London Dance ! You just need a grown ups email address to sign up.

We've almost practiced all the skills we need to have a competitive team game of rounders!
CATCHING is one of the most important elements of a game of rounder as it can mean the difference between getting the opposite team OUT and WINNING a point or not.
This week we would like to to practice catching different size objects e.g. tennis balls, footballs, bean bags, empty plastic bottles. Start by simply being 3 steps away from your partner and remember to hold you hands in the spider target position we have talk about. When you've mastered that distance take a step back each and continue in this pattern.
Trickier versions of this would be to throw your own ball and clap in between catches OR to try it one handed !
Good luck athletes !

This week we'd like you to carry on developing the skills needed to play an excellent game of rounders!
Throwing accurately is key! Practise throwing different objects e.g. balls of different sizes and textures, bean bags, sponges, cushions... and then move onto throwing them to a target e.g. into a hoop, zone, basket, a particular paving slab.
In rounders, being able to throw accurately to a team mate is key to earning you points and getting other teams out. Once you've mastered throwing to a target, why not partner up with a member of your household to throw and catch?
You're going to be awesome!

Getting fit and being active
This week we are continuing to encourage you to get active on walks, in the garden and indoors. Why not play games on a wet day to exercise your brain, throw sponges at a target on a sunny day to cool you down and get physically active by running, jumping, skipping, kicking and throwing balls or making an obstacle course in your garden. We have put a fun workout below and some links to games and keeping the family fit. Don't forget, always stretch your muscles first to warm them up before exercising. Have fun everyone!
