This is great news for parents and kids who are dealing with school closures due to the Coronavirus. Joe Wicks, famous as The Body Coach, has become 'the nation's P.E. teacher' will be giving his online P.E. classes to our kids again!
Joe has restarted the kids' workout classes on his You Tube channelon Monday 11th January, and will carry on doing them at 9am three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the school closures. If you miss them live you can catch up on previous workouts on his You Tube channel too.
The workouts are designed to be kid friendly, last twenty minutes, and don't need much space so they can be done indoors if you're self-isolating.
P.E. With Joe Fancy Dress Friday
Friday workouts are a little different with Joe (and sometimes his family too!) doing the workout in costume, and he's confirmed these will be back this January too!
Last time, we saw Joe dressed up as Spider-Man, Scooby Doo*, and a rather big googly-eyed frog! Make sure you join in with bargain fancy dress costumes* and the best ones he will feature on his social media. And I can't express how much fun it is to watch a mini Mario* doing a workout in your living room!
If you need to get some more comfy clothing for the kids to do their PE lessons, Matalan* have some affordable joggers, shorts, t-shirts and hoodies for the kids. They also have kids' plimsolls and trainers from £8*, just in case your kids are starting to grow out of theirs.
We think P.E. with Joe is an amazing idea, and it should help keep the kids active as well as bringing some structure and routine to the day while we're all 'home schooling'.
I'm going to do this with the kids, and maybe it will make me a bit healthier too! Thank you Joe x
