PE and wellbeing resources (some cross-curricular)
It is possibly more important than ever before to keep your children active at this challenging time. Without the routine of regular physical activity at school, children are at a greater risk of developing poor habits and therefore having a detrimental effect on their physical and mental health. Please find below a selection of online resources that will help you plan with your child the recommended 1 hour of physical activity required every day. Stay healthy!

GoNoodle is awesome fun for the whole family! We love it when everyone does our dances, sings our songs, and plays GoNoodle together. It’s a daily ritual in many schools across the U.K. (and many around the world) and we think it’s a super fun thing you can do with your little ones every day too! Plus, we have another app called “GoNoodle Games” that is an awesome way to get your kids moving in front of the screen.
