Exercising during lockdown is more important than ever, with proven benefits to both physical and mental health. The Chief Medical Officer’s guidance recommends 60 minutes of activity a day for children, but with schools closed and social distancing measures preventing most organised sport from taking place, extra efforts are needed to maintain activity levels.
As such, we've put together this page to help find activities, games and more to help keep everyone healthy and active!
Every pupil has their own home login for Jasmine that teachers have shared with their classes.
Real PE at home will help children to continue to develop a broad range of skills, such as communication, problem solving, resilience, creativity and, of course, their Fundamental Movement Skills.
Fun challenges, ideas, games and activities ensure families stay active inside and out through lockdown, winter and beyond.
Activities can be carried out individually or in a pair with an adult or sibling.
A guide can be found here including a short video that talks through the site:
If your child needs their logins please contact their class teacher.
Mrs Frow is very kindly making for everyone a series of daily exercises to do from home. All pupils have these set daily on their class page, with activities building on each other throughout the week. All teachers will be joining in too, and parents are more than welcome!
Below is a 30-Day plank challenge for beginners. Children might like to give it a go, but so might parents too!
Videos showing how to plank are below.
Another fun game we've been recommended is 'Bring Sally Up, Bring Sally Down.' You squat and hold whenever you hear 'Bring Sally Down' and hold until you hear 'Bring Sally Up.'
I'm told you certainly feel the burn!
