We did it!
My class was delighted to reach Beijing today. The cheers could probably be heard in Beijing!We enjoyed all the activities and challenges, and the children loved hearing the athletes talk and demonstrate exercises. Elsa Desmond was a favourite here, and Thomas Barr was a great presenter. As a teacher, I loved the PE activities, which could be done with little or no equipment. We’ll be continuing on with some of our favourites, although I don’t know if our legs will ever be the same again after the wall sits!I’m enclosing a couple of our designs from challenge 2. Maybe we’ll see something similar grace a future Olympic games!Thanks for a great programme, fun, educational and easy to manage from a teacher’s point of view.
