We all know that keeping active is a vital part of every child’s education, as well as being important for their mental and physical health. Exercise when combined with a healthy balanced diet is the perfect recipe to stay fit and healthy both physically and mentally and have fun too.
Physical Education and daily physical activity in supporting young people’s wellbeing has never been more important.
Ms Jordan and Mr Kirk will be setting fun activities and challenges on this page for pupils (and their families) to take part in.
Home Learning PE Activities - Spring 2021
The activities below (split by year group) have been compiled by the Essex School Games Organisers, a combination of our own ideas and those researched.
Some activities have video links to help explain the games.
The activities are intended for your children to use daily and we hope they can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Keeping physically active, improves our health, wellbeing, and mood, so we hope your children can have a go.
The games can all be done inside, but if the weather allows, you can always go outside.
We have kept the diagrams to a minimum, so if you need to print them off, your coloured ink will not deplete.
Please note that once the children have mastered the basic activity, they can play the game many times over, in many ways, as you will find the differentiated ideas at the end of each activity, under the STEP model.
In addition, here is a list of websites you could use to keep your children physically active at home.
