We in the PE Department hope that everybody is OK during this strange time of Lockdown and managing as best as you can to stay happy and healthy.
We want to encourage everybody to be as active as possible while staying safe and abiding by the lockdown restrictions. It is really important that you are keeping physically active during this Lockdown as 30 minutes of exercise every day will really help your physical and emotional health.
We have circulated a PowerPoint via SMHW which has lots of ideas of different physical activities you could try at home as well as creative activities to have a go at, new skills to learn or improve on and recommendations for sporting books to read and TV/movies to watch. You could even try one of the PE challenges! You must always warm up, wear suitable clothing, make sure the area around you is safe and stay hydrated. We expect you to be doing an activity every day that you have a PE lesson but know that many of you are doing and will do a lot more.
The PE dept are choosing weekly challenges for students and staff. This week 25th – 31st January is the ‘Step Up challenge’ click here to see how to join in (and have a laugh at staff).
We will also be running a number of extracurricular activities this week, 25th – 31st January.
- Yoga on Monday – 3pm
- HITT on Friday – 7.45pm
It would be great if as many people as possible join us. Details of activities are also on our PE dept Twitter account.
If you take part in any of the activities it would be great if you could share a picture(s) with the PE department, which we could then share with the rest of the school community via social media (school web site, PE dept Twitter, school face book, school My Edd app, Show My Homework). You could have chosen to do anything from the huge number of things on the PowerPoint or it could be anything else that you enjoy.
Pictured below are some of our PE staff taking part in live PE lessons, just one of the many ways to stay active.
Stay Happy and Healthy (and active).
The PE department.
