I have attached all your school work for this week. Remember you can send videos and voice recordings of your work too.  If you have any questions or do not understand anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask me. I am looking forward to seeing all your wonderful work again this week.

Try make some hurdles at home (using chairs, boxes, brush etc) and always ask for help from a parent. Practice running and jumping over these, try to hop over with one leg and move through the hurdle rather than stopping and jumping. Start low and then higher the hurdles a little bit when you are comfortable and make sure they’re all the same height.
