Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all keeping up your daily activity by going for a walk, run or cycle. I am going to give you lots of ideas to support you all in achieving 60 active minutes a day in line with the Chief Medical Officer's guidance. As we all have limited space at home I thought you would like to try some of these activities to burn off some energy! There are lots of different sports and games to try, keeping checking this page because I will add more as I discover them.

Keep active!
