Exercise:

It’s important to get some exercise while school is closed. The Body Coach, Joe Wicks, is doing PE lessons every morning at 9:00am on YouTube while schools are closed. He also has a wide variety of excercise videos that you can access on YouTube. Try to follow along to at leas one video each day! No equipment necessary, just copy Joe’s exercises!

Please be sensible while school is closed. Remember the ways to be careful: Wash your hands regularly. Clean surfaces at home that you use a lot, such as the kitchen table or work tops. Cough and sneeze into your elbow. Avoid crowds or groups of people. Stay at home except when it’s absolutely necessary to go out or if you are getting some exercise. This will help keep you all safe and healthy.

Thank you.

Stephen, Emma and Alo.
