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' by giving daily online P.E. classes for kids!
Joe is holding kids' workout classes on his You Tube channel, and he will be doing them every weekday at 9am during 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 half an hour, 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, like today's family Fancy Dress Friday with Joe as Harry Potter and a little Baby Shark joining him!
So far we've seen 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!
P.E. With Joe Charity T-Shirts
If you need to get some more comfy clothing for the kids to do their PE lessons, Asda are still doing a 3 for £10*offer online including some joggers, shorts, t-shirts and hoodies. They also have kids' plimsolls from £2.50 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 every day with the kids, and maybe it will make me a bit healthier too! Thank you Joe x
