Some different ideas:

- Why not have a go at Mr Batey's Daily Challenges. Click this link to find out today's challenge. 

Mrs Batey's Daily Challenges


- Set a timer and get jumping! How many jumps can you do in 20 seconds? Get some water and rest for 20 seconds. Now have another go, can you beat your first number? Remember - Personal Best plus 1!


- Can you create your own obstacle course in your garden? Think about objects you could safely move over, under and even through. Race against the clock. Can you balance a toy on a racket and move through your obstacle course?


- Take Part in the Joe Wicks daily PE lesson. Don't forget to fill up your water bottle before you start!
