Good morning everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and well. This is just a message to let you know I am now giving each class individual PE challenges every week - your teachers are sharing them on their class pages - therefore I thought it would be easier for you to view activities on your own pages. I have set a family challenge so if you have siblings in the house you can all join in as well as individual activities too. I hope you enjoy them. I am still available if anyone would like to contact me and I am also still puting tasty recipes on the Cumwhinton School Sports Facebook page as well as some mindfulness activities. Mrs B
Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well. I have been looking for some different mindfulness activities that would engage ALL ages of children and I found this idea - it says KS2 but I think even our little ones would enjoy drawing round you or a sibling and fill in where happiness is, this can be an on going project with the children adding a new happy idea everyday and make it a happy body outline!!
I thought I would share this with you too - it seems like a big document but you can pick and choose the ideas you think your child would enjoy? I especially like the ideas at the beginning of what to do if you don't have beanbags or balls to hand. I hope these ideas are helping!!
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you have had an enjoyable Easter and not eaten TOOO much chocolate. I will now once again continue to put recipes, challenge cards and different sporting ideas on here. Please feel free to contact me if you require any further guidance or ideas on more specfic sporting development for your child(ren) and I will be happy to share what I can and help out too. Stay safe everyone and enjoy the sunshine
One for the Mums and Dads (and more sporty children!!) please follow for some really energetic workouts - Tasha has worked in Cumwhinton school delivering various classes after school from Body Combat to Circuits so the children know her well!!

Good morning - most of the children will be able to tell you about the '100 miles to Tokyo' I launched just before .....well you know....to keep the idea alive here is a Road to Tokyo sheet. There are some really fun ideas from snowball fights to creating a poem. I wonder who can reach the gold medal!! I can't wait to see who completes it all...as always let me know if you would like this emailed over...
Please use the following link for some fun activities, lots of little workouts for the children to try- some with stories how to keep safe around fire as well as worksheets to fill in...will definitely use these at school once we are back!!
