PE Learning for all

 

 

Hello Mr Young here!

 

As the days go by, I'll be keeping in touch by offering PE ideas you can do at home. Try and ensure physical activity is part of your daytime routine.
 

Weekly, I will be putting a challenge for the children to complete. In the meantime, below are a few ideas to get you active. Enjoy!

 

BBC Sports Week. Check out the timetable and go online for daily videos.

Week commencing 06th July - The Virtual Tennis Challenge

Thank you to those schools who have our Virtual School Sports Day. If you wish to continue this, please do so.

 

This week you will find the instructions sheet for our final virtual event of the summer term - The Virtual Tennis Challenges.

 

For the racket control activity players must only use one hand to hold the racket.

 

For the bounce catches the player must use alternate hands to make one handed throws and catches. If the ball is dropped just carry on the count.

 

For the over the net and drop shot challenges you may either throw the ball over the net or use a racket. If a racket is used double the points scored. You should self bounce serve and may use one or two hands on the racket.

 

For the T run set up a T with markers. Place down a start marker, measure 3m out and place the centre marker. Finally place a marker 2m left and 2m right of the centre marker to form a T shape. Players move forwards to centre, side step across the T and back to the centre then backwards to the start for 1 point.

 

Nets can be made using tape, rope or garden chairs. Books or hands can be used as rackets if a racket is not available. Markers can be soft toys or flower pots. How creative can you be ?

 

Send your scores to your teacher via Class Dojo.

 

Have a good week. 

Week Commencing 29th June - Virtual Sports Day

As this year we are unfortunately missing out on our school sports day I am challenging you (and your class) to the Virtual Sports Day 2020. There are six activities I would you like you to complete at home. Fill in the scorecard (or simply write them down) and send the scores to your teacher via Classdojo. They would also really like to see taking part- maybe send a photo too!

 

Have a good week.

Scorecard should you wish to keep track of your score over the week.

Week commencing 1st June.

 

Good morning. I hope you are all safe and well.

 

The weather is amazing at the moment so go and explore the outside safely when you can. 

 

Remember in the hot weather to drink plenty of water and plenty of sun cream! 

 

This weeks challenge - Keep on the move. 

 

Thank you to the Youth Sport Trust for this weeks challenge. Remember you can change and adapt these activities. 

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Mr Young

Good morning. I hope you are all well. 

 

This weeks challenge - Activity Bingo

 

 

Thank you to the Sport Unit and Youth Sport Trust for this weeks challenge. Remember you can change and adapt these activities. 

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Mr Young

Week commencing 11th May.

 

Good morning. I hope you all had a good weekend.

 

This weeks challenge - footwork patterns.

 

Footwork is a key skill in any sport in compete in. Your challenge this week  is to create a track indoors or outdoors using things like teddies or plastic cups (Tom has his own cones). 

 

Make sure there is enough space to turn the body and avoid sharp corners. Tom in the video created a simple, example track. I am sure you can make a more exciting course with lots of twists and turns.

 

Start with a bit of speed walking - ensuring feet touch the ground from heel-to-toe and use your arms to drive you forward.

 

Then develop other patterns: side steps, lunges, hopping. in and out of the cones. Can you time yourself and see how many objects you can get around? Even packing away is a great activity, as you are using your core to pick up the objects at the same time.

 

Take care and stay safe.

Week commencing 4th May 

 

Good morning. I hope you are all well. 

This week should be Walk the Wight and to celebrate this the PE challenge this week is encouraging you to get out and walk. 

 

Most of you complete a daily mile at school, can you now challenge yourself to complete this and further this week? Can you log your walking and share this with your teacher this week? You could compete with another family member?

 

Create your own challenge!

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Mr Young

Week commencing 27th April.

 

Good morning. I hope you are all well. 

 

This weeks challenge - target throw. 

 

With the weather expected this week, this challenge can be completed outside or inside. You need a range of small items (which you are allowed to throw) and a target. As shown in the video, Tom takes three steps, turns and aims for the target. He shows two different examples: a small and a large target for a variation in challenge.  

 

Can you challenge yourself by throwing into different targets? Different distances? Different heights? Could you challenge a member of your family (links to maths)? Create your own challenge!

 

Take care and stay safe.

Week commencing 20th April.

 

Welcome back after Easter! 

 

This weeks challenge - step ups. 

 

Again, this can be completed in a safe space, ideally using a set of steps (make sure you use the bottom step), however you could use an object to raise your legs off the ground (pillow, something sensible). 

 

The challenge is as always, very simple. Simply step up and down as quickly as you can. You get one point for each step up and down (in the video Ruby completed 10 for example). 

 

I am challenging children from Reception and Key Stage 1 to complete as many in 30 seconds and Key Stage 2 in 1 minute. Remember to complete safely. Challenge your family too, can they beat your score?

 

Take care and stay safe.

Week commencing 13th April.

 

I hope you all had a nice weekend. 

 

This weeks challenge - ladder run....well egg run!

 

Again, this can be completed in any space in the house, or the garden and with any objects, just ensure it is a flat surface you are running on. 

 

The challenge is very similar to the first week. You have to step over the objects from one end to the other, without touching the objects. We used eggs as we had plenty on Sunday!  You can also add more or less depending on your space. You get one point for a completed length (in the video Tom would of got 4 points for example). 

 

I am challenging children from Reception and Key Stage 1 to complete as many in 30 seconds and Key Stage 2 in 1 minute. Remember...do not hit any objects, the point will not count. Challenge your family too, can they beat your score?

 

Take care and stay safe.

Week commencing 6th April.

 

Good morning and Happy Easter! This weeks challenge - around the world.  

This again can be completed in any space in the house, or the garden and with any object, not just a ball. The challenge again is simple, to pass the object around your body (as Ruby is showing). However if you want to challenge yourself further, like Tom, create your own challenging move. As you can see Tom and Ruby are using objects they found around the house. 

 

I am challenging children from Reception and Key Stage 1 to complete as many in 30 seconds and Key Stage 2 in 1 minute. Remember...do not drop the object, this exercise is about control as well as speed.

 

Can you create your own routine? Could you incorporate another member of your family? 

 

Happy Easter

 

Mr Young

Around the world

Week commencing 30th March.

 

Good morning, a simple challenge to begin with. This can be completed in any space in the house, or the garden (make sure it is flat, not too hard and not too slippery). You will need a small, flat object (my daughter Ruby has used a clean sock) and you simply complete jumps over the object.

 

I am challenging children from Reception and Key Stage 1 to complete as many jumps in 15 seconds and Key Stage 2 in 25 seconds.

 

Can you beat your previous days score? You could always challenge your family and make a competition.

 

Have fun with it!
