For those of you who would like something different or extra for your children whilst they are at home, here are a range of online lessons and activities for you and your children to explore. Please know that these activities are optional and are intended for you to use only if you want to. If you and your child are struggling with more formal ‘learning’ at home, these online activities might be a welcome change! Content on these sites is liable to change and will not have been monitored by the school.
Local PE Consultant Matt Upston with the help of Schools Half Marathon Challenge have created some KS 1 PE activities focussing on Locomotion (Movement) Balance and Object Control for children to do while we are at home.
Each week will have a different theme and will consist of 11 Videos which will be released throughout the week.
Week 1 is pirates and has a warm up which can be repeated throughout the week and then a Stability, Locomotion and Object Control challenge released on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with a family game too. There is also some downloadable guides to help with the challenges and also help with linked ideas for other educational activities and ideas on how to differentiate them for older or younger children. The videos can be followed and continued or used by parents to get ideas for some early years PE.
We will have a different theme each week to help with keeping interest and to make it fun.
I hope you like them. Week 2 will be animals!

Circuits or HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
Encourage your children make up their own activity circuit and time them for 30 seconds – 1 minute at each activity each day. They could record their results in a chart to plot their progress. Years 4 & 6 should be familiar with this as they have been working on this in school.
