PE Advent Calendar December 2020
Miss Arnold has kindly asked us to share this fantastic PE Advent Calendar with you all. It is would be a fantastic activity to do over Christmas- there is one PE activity for every day and it will keep you fit and healthy. I will be giving 50 house points for every child that completes a PE advent calendar challenge and posts it on their blog. You could put pictures or videos of your activity or write about what you have done. That means you can get an extra 20 house points every day by doing a daily challenge- come on Year One! let's do this! I have put a downloadable PDF of the candle document below which you download, print and use at home.
