What cool things do YOU do in PE?

Cast of Into the Hoods

Loads more kids are putting on their dancing shoes and learning some moves in their school gyms.

So that got us wondering what other things you get up to in your PE lessons.

Have you been learning ballroom dancing, ballet, or maybe something a bit more upbeat like street dance?

Or perhaps you've been doing some sort of martial art, or have been chilling out with a bit of yoga?

Maybe you've even been lucky enough to hit the beach for surfing lessons during school.
