Virtual Sports Day 2020!
I have planned a Virtual Sports Day, for all the children to take part in.
Obviously due to current circumstances, unfortunately we can't have a 'normal' sports day and the weather hasn't been great either.
So I thought it would be a nice idea to still have one, but just differently this year.
The document is below.
Children attending school will complete these events/challenges during their PE lesson in school.
We would also like children who are home learning to take part, this will be next week, beginning the 6th July, results to be submitted to myself, as a Class Dojo message, by Friday 10th July.
Winners will be announced week beginning 13th July.
We would like as many children as possible to join in and enter.
All the information you should need is on the final page of the document and the score sheet is page two.
This is also for younger children too, as you will see on the cards/pages, as I thought younger siblings or family members might want to join in at home too.
Hopefully it will be a fun and enjoyable event for all.
Good luck and have fun!
Thank you, Mrs Clarke 😊
PE and Physical Activity
Here are some ideas for PE and physical activities to do at home, some may require adapting slightly, but the majority are good to go!
There are lots of different activities including: invasion games, striking and fielding, gymnastics, dance, athletics, DTF fitness, fundamental skills, physical activity, warm ups, cool downs and stretching. There is also PE with Joe Wicks, Just Dance on YouTube and GoNoodle that can be used too.
These can be used as your PE lessons, active breaks or generally being active at home.
Getting or keeping active is not just good for you physically, it has the power to do so much more - it can, for example, help to prevent or manage medical conditions, reduce anxiety or stress and improve your confidence or self-esteem and much more.
Derbyshire School Games Virtual Curriculum Resource
Today, Derbyshire School Games have launched their virtual curriculum resource for PE and physical activity home leaning.
These resources will give you ideas on how to be physically active, within a different sport theme, for 30 minutes each day (Monday – Friday).
Each pack contains a schedule of suggested activity challenges for the week and daily activity cards.
The weekly activities are themed around golf, football, tennis, orienteering, athletics, cricket, gymnastics, boccia, netball and badminton.
All activities have been developed so everyone can access them and everyone can have a go, using equipment found in the home and whatever space you have available.
Within the resource you will be directed to additional resources, for more ideas on how to the fulfil 60 minutes of daily physical activity.
Week 1 is themed around Golf, with 9 further weeks making their way too you each Thursday.
Have fun and be active!
Week 2 follows a similar format and is themed around Football.
Week 3's focus is Netball, hopefully with plenty of activities to allow children to continue to be active at home.
A reminder also that submissions for the Golf virtual competitions close tomorrow (Friday 8th) with Football entries open until next Friday. It would be great to see the impact the resources have made and there are some great prizes on offer too!
Week 4's focus is Orienteering, again, hopefully with plenty of activities to allow children to continue to be active at home.
A reminder that submissions for the Design a Football shirt virtual competition close tomorrow (Friday 15th) with Netball entries open until next Friday (22nd).
Have a go and good luck! As I said previously, it would be great to see the impact the resources have made and there are some great prizes on offer too!
Week 5 of the Derbyshire School Games virtual curriculum which AVSSP have been involved in creating and distributing, is now available.
This week focusses on Athletics and again includes a virtual competition element where students can enter to win prizes for their efforts.
Week 6 of the Derbyshire School Games virtual curriculum which AVSSP have been involved in creating and distributing, this week focusses on Cricket and again includes both practical and cultural elements.
Week 7 of the Derbyshire School Games Virtual Curriculum is themed around gymnastics, which includes another virtual competition on Friday.
Week 8 of the Derbyshire School Games Virtual Curriculum is based on Boccia, a lovely game which we have played in school and we have enjoying competing in an inter-school Boccia competition, earlier in the year.
Week 9 of the Derbyshire School Games Virtual Curriculum is Racket Sports.
Each Friday asks children to complete a simple challenge and submit a photo of their efforts to enter the Virtual Competition, by doing so pupils give themselves a chance to win prizes and recognition through Active Derbyshire and the sports NGB.
I hope these resources continue to be used at home to keep our children active during this different and challenging time!
To add to the weekly Virtual Curriculum resources we have been supplying you with each week we are excited to provide a new 'Dance around the world' activity pack.
Amber Valley School Sport Partnership (AVSSP) have worked alongside Active Derbyshire and the Derbyshire Active Schools Network to develop a series of free dance resources. “Dance Around the World” resources consist of a video of approximately 10 minutes which includes a warm up, dance routine (linked to a country) and a simple worksheet to accompany each dance.
We are encouraging the use of these resources in school and at home to help young people to stay mentally and physically healthy, through taking part in physical activity.
Two resources will be released each week with the first two being Africa and Egypt and can be downloaded from the Dance folder below.
The resources have been designed to adhere to social distancing regulations and can be completed within limited space, above all, the activities help young people get moving and to have fun. Two more resources will be added to the site each week for the next 3 weeks.
