Year 7: Monday 11-11:30
Year 8: Tuesday 11-11:30
Year 9: Wednesday 11-11:30
Year 10/11/13: Thursday 11-11:30
In the general section of your tutor team, you will also see an assembly video which is posted each week, presented by Mrs Reynolds, Mrs Arnold and a selection of guest teachers.
Northamptonshire Sport have been running Active Northants for the last three weeks. As part of their offer to provide opportunities for teenagers within the county to be physically active they have been funding local partners to deliver FREE sessions in Boxing, Calisthenics, Dance, Fitness and Yoga. These sessions are free for anyone between the ages of 14 and 16 to sign up to and are a great way to keep yourself active and fit at home.
To help incentivise this they have added some exciting new incentives:
- Northamptonshire Sport will be funding this for at least 12 more weeks to allow teenagers to complete the sessions as part of their DofE physical.
- They have introduced a refer a friend policy. If you sign up 5 friends and they enter your name as the referral you get £5, and for 10 friends you get £10.
Register now at www.northamptonshiresport.org/activenorthants to get access to all these sessions live each week.
