The Latest Virtual Challenge
Below is the link to the most recent virtual challenge for the school games, Netball! Please can you circulate this to as many of your parents and families as possible and promote the challenge. Also get as many as you can to have a go at School!!
As with the last activities, we are aiming to get as many video submissions so we can continue to engage as many pupils as possible. Can I thank all schools who promoted the challenges so far and for those who were able to complete the challenge and submit a video. Please continue to remind all those who submit a video that we really need the name of the school, name of the pupil and the year group so we can keep a clear track of engagement.
All entries can be submitted at email@example.com
I'm really please to report that we are still getting many video submissions with 242 to date which still represents over 40% of the total engagement across Norfolk - lets keep it up!!!!!
The video links will also be found on the news section of our website at www.westnorfolkssp.co.uk
I’m really looking forward to seeing lots of brilliant entries from your school.
Many thanks in anticipation of your help in engaging as many young people from West Norfolk as possible.

A message from DEMAT
It's been announced that phased school returns could happen from 1 June (after half term) at the earliest.
The Prime Minister has said this will be done in stages, beginning with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.
We understand our families will have questions after the announcement.
We will be reviewing the guidance the government will publish later and will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

A message from Harry Collison from Premier Education
I hope you're well and staying healthy.
As you know last week we released stage one of our STAY ACTIVE home learning resources: www.premier-education.com/stay-active
Since then we've been busy recording Activity Professional lead home learning videos as part of our commitment to get children active at home.
Monday we are launching our brand new YouTube channel where we'll be releasing a new video each day at 3.30 pm. The idea is that this can act as an after school home learning activity and replace the exercise children would normally get during our extra-curricular clubs if they were at school. Sessions will focus on activities including dance, football, fitness, gymnastics, basketball, tennis and yoga and more.
So far we have filmed five weeks worth of content, and sessions include "Personal Best' challenges so they can be completed again and again as children keep trying to improve.
If the parents want to share videos/images of their children in action on our Instagram and Facebook pages (@PremierCambridgeandWestNorfolk) we'll also be able to see how they are getting on!
