The challenges provide all Berkshire schools with a brilliant easy to use resource to support pupils increase their activity levels at their own pace. It is NOT a competition. You do not have to submit any results. Pupils can record their own progress (INDEPENDENCE).
Dan introduces it HERE
Pupils will need to practice (RESILIENCE) to achieve the times required for each award, they won't realise how much exercise they are doing as they will be having FUN!
Schools can use the pupil's record as evidence of improved COORDINATION; SPEED; AGILITY & ENDURANCE.
The challenges can be used:
