National ‘Active SCHOOL Week’ takes place every April and is a really enjoyable part of the school year for many children.
This year, because of COVID-19, it is not possible for this to go ahead so we are asking you to invite the families of your school to participate in the ‘Active HOME Week‘ challenge instead.

As well as that if there is any other work you have been doing at home and you are proud of it then please send a picture via email and I will put it up on this blog.
