You may be aware that the London Marathon should have taken place on Sunday 26th April but was postponed due to COVID-19. This could mean charities losing out on donations, so the 2.6 Challenge was born.
To keep us active and connected, and hopefully have a little fun in the process, the Pastoral and Wellbeing teams are inviting Bare Trees Primary School staff to participate in this event and raise money for charity.
The idea is that school staff will challenge another member of Bare Trees Staff to a task based around the numbers 2.6. This could be something simple like ‘run 2.6km’, or as silly as ‘say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious 26 times’.
Some teachers are already busy taking part in their challenges. We will keep you up to date on the website and Twitter.
Head on over to the Wellbeing page on our website to learn how to be more mindful which can help you to be happy and more calm.

I wanted to let you know that school has a twitter account. The age for having twitter is 13+ so you are too young to have twitter yourself but your grown ups may want to follow our school twitter feed. We put updates on twitter and also some of your work. Ask your grown ups to have a look.
The schools twitter is: @TreesBare
Home Learning Rules
Real PE at home – online learning resources
Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.
It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from next week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing 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. Here are the details to access real PE at home:
