Active Home Week 2020

In the 2019/20 school year we were unable to hold an Active School Week due to Covid-19 school closures.
We held an Active HOME Week instead and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. These some of the things we came up with.

The children completed Active HOME Week charts and received a certificate for their fantastic efforts.
Sample completed charts:
