On this page there are lots of different ideas for keeping active while you're learning from home. I have looked through the websites and found that although they haven't been updated for this lockdown there are still some great ideas to give you different challenges.
BBC Supermovers is a great way to learn and get moving, try that website first, see if you can find one to show your teacher and class when we return. A favourite one of ours in Year 4 is the 'Just for fun:Danger Mouse challenge'. There are some good ones for learning your timestables too!
