Practical PE from Whickham School

In the absence of having regular PE lessons at school, it is essential that you plan for how you will exercise while you are away from school.  It is also essential that you follow government guidelines on social distancing and self-isolation where required, but there are many ways in which we can all continue to take part in regular exercise.
