Real PE

An online programme for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 children which supports families to be active, play and learn together. There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical well-being but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months.
