Water Safety

If you are planning a trip to the beach, where your children will be able to enjoy the open water for a swim or paddle, please make sure your children know how to FLOAT – this will help save their life if they should fall into open water, or get into trouble while playing in the water.  A video showing children how to float is here.

The resources below will help you reinforce the message about how to stay safe at the beach.

Key Stage 2 Sport

The ideas on this page are all suitable for keeping Key Stage 2 children physically active during the time that we have to stay at home.  We would love to see some photos so we can display them here.

Did you know we've recently been recognised for our ongoing commitment, engagement & achievement in the School Games Programme?  Keep up the good work, everyone!

Summer Holiday Home Learning

Write yourself a training plan to follow over the summer, so you’re fit for school in September.  Here’s an example:

Monday - Joe Wicks HIIT workout

Tuesday – 30 mins walk

Wednesday – Joe Wicks HIIT workout

Thursday – 30 mins bike ride

Friday – rest (help out around the house & review your training plan)

Saturday – Joe Wicks HIIT workout

Sunday – 60 mins walk

Use all the ideas below to make sure your training plan motivates you!  Perhaps you'll enjoy doing something different every couple of weeks.

You might like to have an end goal in mind, such as the Spitfire 10k on 29th August.

Super Movers

As it's really important to stay active during this time when we can't participate in PE lessons at school, the BBC has put together a collection of videos which help children move while they learn.

Click this link here for some excellent ideas that support the children in their curriculum learning, including maths and English.  Use the KS2 videos.  You can even practise some French or Spanish!  

PE with Joe

We are actively supporting these Monday to Friday 9am workouts which can be accessed by clicking here.

Each time you complete one of these sessions, you will contribute to the NHS Charities Together fund.

#ThisIsPE

Use this link here to access two-minute videos presented by PE teachers, posted on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 1pm. 

These videos focus on different aspects of the National Curriculum, meaning children can still develop their PE skills. 

There is no need for PE kit or sports equipment - everything needed can be found around the home.

6s children's ideas

Before we had to close, the children in 6s put together a series of ideas for keeping active at home.

Perhaps these will inspire you to think of your own.  Click here to see what they came up with!

Extra-curricular clubs

Our sports partners have also been busy posting skills-based videos.  These include a variety of workouts, football and table tennis skills.

Click here for New Generation Sports and here for Strive PE and Sport.
