The Joy of Moving

We know that it can be difficult for children to stay active
during the winter months and now even more so, given the
challenging times with current restrictions. This resource pack, shared with us by Colchester United Football in the Community provides lots of activities to help families and children get active while having fun in their own homes. 

Feel free to tell us more about which game you’re enjoying and who beat who (even if it’s mum or dad)!  You can share your experiences of this on Seesaw, Tapestry or by emailing us.
