Are you ready for a challenge Rosehill children? Each week, 5 new weekly challenges will be set by the teachers in school, as well as Mr Holmes and Mr Wagstaff. You have a week to complete the challenge. If you would like to, please share your response by emailing email@example.com with your pictures, videos etc and we will post it to this page.
We hope as many of you can take part as possible. We encourage you to take part in as many of the challenges as you like, you don't just have to do the ones set by your class teacher.
Mr Mac's Million Meter Mega Mission!
Ok everyone, I've gone big with the challenge this week and I'm going to need as much help as possible.
The aim is simple - I want to try and walk a million meters between us.
All you need to do is ask parents/carers to work out how long your daily walks are, multiply them by the number of people you are walking with and send me the number of meters you have walked between you.
If you want to take some pictures to accompany your daily totals, that would be great and please feel free to send in an entry every time you do a walk.
I will be keeping a running total of how many metres we have walked as a school community on this page.
Any form of exercise is good for you but can you imagine moving and helping your parents/carers at the same time?
That is precisely the aim of my next challenge. I want you to see how many points you can earn before you next see me and I would love to see pictures of you completing tasks.
Hoover any room - 10 points
Wash the dishes - 10 points
Tidy your bedroom - 25 points (it needs to be spotless!)
Make someone a drink - 5 points (if it is a hot drink, you need to check with an adult if you are allowed to do this)
Help in the garden - 10 points
Hang the washing out - 10 points
Help clean the kitchen/bathroom - 20 points (check with parents/carers what you can do to help).
Parents/carers might even set you a target and if you reach it give you a reward of their choice.
So get cracking and send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can see what you have done.
Week 1: The Thousand Point Challenge
Can you and your family members earn 1000 or more points in my weekly challenge? Can you beat my score?
This competition has two categories: individual scores and family scores.
Points are awarded for the following activities and are added up over the week to give you a final score, combining exercise and maths!
1 minute walking = 1 point
1 sit up = 1 point
1 star jump = 1 point
1 body weight squat = 1 point
1 press up = 1 point
1 crunch = 1 point
Keep a record of your points each time you exercise and feel free to post pictures both on twitter and to email@example.com of you and your family taking part in the challenge.
At the end of the week, send your individual and family points totals (which can be over 1000) to the above e-mail address if you want to be in with a chance of appearing on our virtual podium.
Best of luck!
