PE at home
A lot of Grove children are misisng sports right now, ecpecially year 4 and 5 who were talking part in Warickshire Cricket Board's Chance to Shine programme. Below you will find some cricket activities that you can practise safely at home with your parents or siblings.
As you know, we love PE very much at Grove and are missing our lessons together, but this doesn’t mean you can’t exercise at home. Try and do at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Here are some ideas below to help get your whole family moving.
