Weekly Physical Skill Challenge!


In D2, each week this half term, one of their 1-a-Day Topic activities is a 'Physical Skill Challenge. Miss Potter and I decided it would be good to extend this across the school. So, each week Miss Potter and I will bring you a weekly Physical Skill Challenge to complete at home. It would be great to see your challenges and to post them on here.


If you complete a challenge, have someone photograph or film it and send it to me using the contact form on my class page. If you send me an email, I can email you back, then you wil have my email address to be able to send your photographs or films to. Alternatively, you can upload to your Seesaw Journal, ask your teacher to notify me and I can access your Journal to download the photo/video. There are ways of using Hwb to share your challenge photos and videos with me too. If you are interested in doing this  then contact me using the contact form on my class page!

Have a go at this circuit workout.

Create your own recording sheet to keep a record of what you have done.  If you are unsure of any of the exercises, view the PowerPoint slides below that explains how each one is done. 

Good luck! :) 

Can you work out your heart rate after carrying out certain exercises? Create the table below on paper to record your own heart rate. :)

To record the beats per 10 seconds, find your pulse (it is usually easy to feel your pulse on your neck just below your jaw line or on the inside of your wrist), time 10 seconds on a clock and count how many times your feel your heart beat during that time. Then you must times that number by 6 to record your heart rate.

Yoga Sessions


Hello boys, girls, mums, dads and friends, it is really important that we look after our mental and emotional health as well as our physical health and yoga is wonderful at helping us do this. Try the routine I have put together, remembering to start with a mindful moment and to end with relaxation. Repeat the routine each day to build strength and you will find that you are able to balance for longer.

I will add more videos so we can extend the routine.


Take care and keep well.
