This week Team Abbotswell set off on the Travel to Tokyo virtual distance challenge! The challenge is being run by Team GB and Paralympics GB to celebrate the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic games. Our challenge is to travel a distance of 47, 349 km from London to Tokyo by being active and logging our exercise activities.
We are making super progress so far and have already made it to Paris and Athens! Our next stop is Atlanta, USA! Keep up the super work Team Abbotswell!
Helping us with our challenge this week was Coach Steve from Nemesis Kickboxing who sent us videos with fantastic kickboxing fitness sessions to try. We had lots of fun trying something new and we are looking forward to weekly kickboxing sessions with Coach Steve!
The white fluffy stuff was a definite focus for our Health and Wellbeing activities across the school this week! Lots of fun and exercise outdoors including snow angels, sledging and spectacular snowman building! We also kept up our fitness challenges indoors and some of us did some healthy muffin making! Here are some collage snapshots of our week:
This week we were celebrating Children’s Mental Health Week. The theme for this year was Express Yourself! We all like to express ourselves in different ways. Here is a short video to share how some of the boys and girls at Abbotswell like to express themselves!
We were also busy with all our other health and wellbeing activities this week! There was lots of outdoor exercise and fun in the snow this week as well as lots of indoor workouts, dancing and healthy sandwich making!
Another wonderful effort from Team Abbotswell with their health and wellbeing activities this week! We have been muay thai boxing, planking, star jumping, robot dancing, smoothie making and lots more! Great to see so many people exercising and enjoying the outdoors too!
What a fantastic effort from Team Abbotswell this week with their Health and Wellbeing activities! A great start to the term! Lots of exercise, plenty of fresh air and some very creative healthy snacks!

This week we were delighted to finally be able to use the gym again for PE (especially since it was raining outdoors!). Here are Primary 3 having lots of fun and working hard on their fitness stations.
