PE challenges start of Spring Term 2021
Kilgraston’s PE challenges are well underway. Each week as well as our usual PE lessons, our Head of PE, Mrs Ferry, and the rest of the PE staff are setting weekly sporting events for the pupils to tackle.
In week one of term, it was the Home Learning Chilli Challenge.
Each pupil had to pick a chilli strength, mild through to extra hot, and complete the four challenges within. For our Upper Sixth, this could be completing a five kilometre run, recording a sports commentary, research on testing cardiovascular endurance and designing and completing your own HIIT training session – extra hot strength.
Last week, the pupils were asked to complete a Tour of Scotland. Each year group had to travel from the North of Scotland to the South of Scotland in seven stops. With three different levels of intensity, the pupils had to do an exercise from each of the stops. These included things like how many press-ups in 30 seconds and going for a thirty minute walk, run or cycle.
We all know how important exercise is to our mental health particularly in this current lock-down, so huge well done to everyone for staying so motivated and energised!
