Next week Ethelbert Road will be taking on Boughton School in a virtual sports contest. You will be asked to compete in 8 activities and will receive points for each of them. So this week I would like you to practice them at home so we are all up for the challenge! This challenge will include teachers too!

Get Practicing - next week you will receive sheets to record your scores and explain the point system
The week before last week I set you a challenge, this is to continue for 3 weeks. The week before last, you should have timed yourself running a kilometre. If you haven’t you could do so this week and then practice over the next week? At the end of the 3 weeks (which began the week before last) can you time yourself again and see if you have managed to get quicker?
The links for cosmic kids’ yoga and Joe Wicks are also below as usual. Joe Wicks’ PE lessons will now only be shown live on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, however there are lots of episodes over the last few weeks that you could do again on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
