P.E. Lockdown Challenge - Week 4

During lockdown, it is especially important to keep as fit and active as possible. This can help to look after your health and wellbeing.  To help everyone get physically active, in a fun way, the PE Department has decided to set a weekly physical challenge for students, parents / carers and staff to enjoy.

The fourth week's Lockdown Challenge is by Mr Day and is a P.E. Pentathlon Challenge! This challenge involves 5 different tasks to challenge and test your skill and health related fitness. Mr Day has added his scores for you to try and beat. You can challenge Mr Day, the P.E. Department and other family members. Good luck!
