We are all very excited here in ENS because on the 22nd-26th of June we are having our own ‘Virtual Active Schools Week’.  During this week we will be sending you a variety of fun activities to complete at home with your family.

In the lead up to our active week we are now sending you details of 3 competitions that you might like to try at home. Details are attached to this email. We would love to see photos of your amazing baking, art and obstacle courses.  There will be prizes for each competition too.
