Madame Reynard’s French activity builds on previous learning and is all about asking someone else how they are feeling and telling them how you are feeling. Full details of the activity can be found in the resource section at the bottom of this page.



Mr. Williams has put together an SPS exclusive PE challenge. Please see resource bank for more information. 

Add up your total number of stars, take a picture of your scorecard and get an adult to email them in to Your Year Group email address. Mr Williams will then compile our very own I’m A Celebrity Leader board, and we will then find out wow will be crowned King or Queen of the Fitness Jungle in each year group.
