This year our class are participating in the Premiers Be Active Challenge. Regular physical activity is a great way to relax, it improves your health, makes you feel good and helps with learning.
The Challenge is to do at least 60 minutes of physical activity on at least 5 days of the week for 4 weeks. Each day we are recording our activity on a chart. After 4 weeks of daily physical activity we will be rewarded with a medal.
It was been wonderful to see how everybody in our class is being active on a regular basis. We all enjoy our playtime at recess and lunch which equates to 60mins of being physically active. A lot of us have commitments outside of school hours such as swimming, dancing, walking or riding a bike to and from school and participating in a variety of different sports. As a class we also participate in PE lessons every Monday for 50 minutes and fitness for around 20mins for at least 3 days a week. This makes this challenge quite an easy one to achieve as most of us are active for at least 5 days a week without even thinking about it.
Some of us participated in this challenge last year and have already received the Bronze medal and therefore will receive the Silver medal this year. For others this will be our first time completing the challenge and gaining our first medal which will be very exciting.
