In these unusual times St Andrew’s pupils are showing the fantastic St Andrew’s spirit, even with the necessary restrictions, by sharing their crazy keep fit ideas.
Keep Fit Snakes and Ladders
A great resource for keeping children fit while having fun. This resource is based on a old board game, Snakes and Ladders. There are 3 different levels so the game can be adopter for students participating at different levels of fitness.

Joe Wicks has been very popular with pupils at home as well as at school. His regular television fitness show during the holidays is well attended. The sessions are also found on his YouTube channel.
Regular physical activity can be enjoyable while being one of the most important things you can do for your physical and mental health.

The Human Body
When taking part in any physical activity it is very important to warm-up before performing any activity. The warm-up session will consist of light exercise which increases circulation while stretching prepares the muscles for movements required during the activity. The warm-up will help prevent injuries by warming the muscle up preparing them for sudden movements that may be needed in any physical activity. In these photographs we see Jessica learning about about the body, organs and the skeleton system.
While learning about the human body Sebastian produced this impressive, colourful picture about the inside of the human body.

Ballet and Trampolining
Chloe did a trampoline challenge and raised money for Dove House. Chloe proudly displays the ‘Thank you’ card that she received for her valiant effects. You did brilliantly Chloe, Well Done
Chloe, for her keep fit challenge has complete a challenge for Dove House. She completed 26 seat drops in a row.
A seat drop is fundamentally a trampoline stunt in which the performer drops to a sitting position with his legs straight then rebounds to a standing position.
For the Dove House 2.6 challenge you had the choice of completing an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6.
The 2.6 challenge is designed to be fun and suitable for all ages and abilities. Chloe has so far raised £130 for the charity which once again is one of the charities we are supporting. Well done!
