Over the next number of weeks, the PE department will be setting a number of physical and skill-based challenges. Please have a go at them if you have the equipment and the space.
They are only for a bit of fun so take care not to overdo it when attempting any of the challenges. Please make sure you:
· Have enough space to do the challenge that you will not do any damage to your immediate environment.
· Are doing it in a space where you are not going to hurt yourself or anyone else.
· Only try things that you are physically able to attempt in a safe way.
· Act in line with the social distancing advice given by the authorities.
Your physical and mental health are really important in the current situation with social distancing and lockdown at home. These challenges are there to help with that. The challenges will change in nature over the coming weeks. We hope to set two challenges per week. Please have a go with no pressure. Simply enjoy and see how you go! If you want to record yourself completing the challenge, submit the video footage through the assignment upload in teams and follow the instructions to complete this. If you have not responded to the email sent by Mr Hacking regarding ‘teams’, please do so in order to be part of this. The challenges will also be set on the school website.
Video footage can also be shared with the PE department through our twitter account @Hungerhill_PE
Winners will be chosen by the PE department from the students who respond, with prizes to follow in due course.
In the meantime, Joe Wick’s 9am HiiT sessions are another positive start to the day and will definitely give you a lift in the morning.
Please have a go and stay safe.
The PE dept

o Can do them in any order
o Can choose to do a few reps of an exercise, do another exercise and then return back to the previous one (eg do 10 press-ups, 5 burpees and then return to do some more press-ups)
