Keeping healthy and exercising is especially important at the moment so I hope that you are all doing some daily activity!
The Daily Mile
Miss Neville has very kindly told all of the teachers about The Daily Mile for children so this week I am going to set you a special challenge. I love running and try and incorporate this into my daily routine to keep me fit and healthy and it is so good for my Mental Health. The weather is meant to be better this week so it is a perfect opportunity to get all of you running along with me. Therefore, this week, I challenge you all to try and run or walk a mile every day, either in your gardens, or outside in the community, such as in the park or in the pavement. Running is so good for your body and fitness and it s a completely free activity to do, plus I promise you it makes you feel so good after! It is brilliant for your well-being and general Mental Health- make sure you either post photos or videos on your blog of you running your mile so I can give you lots of j2stars I really encourage you to try and run the mile but if you are struggling, you can walk, as long as it is a brisk pace! !

PE at Home
Staying at home marks the launch of a new initiative called 'PE at Home' led by our very own Mrs Lay. Mrs Lay has been very busy working with other PE teachers to create PE lessons that you can complete at home! She has set up a Twitter account and she would love to see you completing some of the challenges! Each week, she will upload a new PE resource card that you can use at home. This is very exciting and provides you all with another way of keeping active. Each week I will add these to the website so that you can access them to help you keep fit and healthy- they will be found underneath this text. You can find our first PE Resource Card if you scroll down under this text on the website.
However you can also download the packs and resource cards yourself. If your parents use Twitter, get them to follow @PEatHome1 and share photos of you doing the activities so that Mrs Lay can see what you've been up to. I know she'd love to see you using the resources that they are providing for you. To encourage you to get active and to share, I am offering 20 HOUSE POINTS for anyone that posts photos and videos of Mrs Lay's PE lessons on the Y1 Blog!
Let's get active Year 1!
Below is the first lesson to get you started...
