Weekly Challenges
This week from Saturday 20th of June to Friday 26th of June we will be celebrating National School Sports Week, by competing in our classes in a range of activities set by Mr Sanders. Each challenge will be posted daily via the Plantation P.E & Sport Twitter account and webpage; I will also retweet it on our class twitter page. You can practise at home as many times as you like, then ask a parent/carer to record/take a picture of your final attempt and send this in a tweet to the P.E & Sports Twitter page (tag me too, please!) . If you don’t use twitter you can email the picture/video to NSSW2020@plantationprimary.com (If emailing please ensure the subject is ‘Plantation Hone Games’). All attempts must be sent in by 5pm that night and must include your first name, first initial of your last name, your class teacher and your score/time (e.g. Andrew S from Miss McKimm’s class scored 35 jumps). Every child who completes the challenge will earn 1 point for their class. The top 3 children from each challenge for EYFS/ Lower School and Upper School will earn bonus points for their classes. The winning classes will be the classes with the most points on Friday 26th of June. I will be competing and hope you will be too!
