Miss Pringle’s Home Olympic Challenge For the next two weeks, Miss Pringle is going to be giving you a daily challenge!

PE In the theme of VE Day, I would like you to learn and practise the Lambeth Walk. The Lambeth Walk is a walking style of dance that was very popular just before, and then during, World War II. The song Doin’ the Lambeth Walk and dance first featured in the 1937 British musical, ‘Me and My Girl’, which was turned into a film, ‘Lambeth Walk’, in 1939. Learn it with someone in your house, put on your finest Cockney strut, and have fun!

It would be fantastic to see videos of your Lambeth Walks.
