Don’t forget to include P.E in your home learning. At the moment it is so important that we keep active – it is recommended children have at least 60 minutes of moderate exercise (such as walking) each day. There are so many health benefits that come from this! Watch the video below to hear how:
Physical activity and active children:
- have higher levels of well-being
- are healthier
- with stronger immune systems
- are more resilient
- have more active brains which learn better
- have a better body image
- which helps children feel better about themselves.
Scroll through our P.E page for links and ideas to get your children moving!
