Athletics (tried & tested) – Socially Distanced P.E!

So that is the end of Week 2 under the new Covid-19 rules. During Week 1 I quickly found out what works and what doesn’t! Currently I teach 6 bubbles in a day, therefore I have found it is easier to clean all of the equipment and set it up early in the morning. Then […]

An alternative idea for Sports Day from home

As supposed to a Sports Day we’re thinking of having a Sports week, the children have to earn ‘points’ by doing some exercise. We then organise the points into their House groups – whichever house gets the most points wins! Here are a few ideas for how it could work…

Socially Distanced P.E! (A few ideas)

In preparation for June the 1st I’ve started to create/collate a few ideas on how to maintain Social Distancing throughout P.E lessons.

Co-ordination & Addition: Maths on the Move

I’ve had fun with this activity in the last few weeks… Nice and simple. Give each pair/team a piece of paper and a pencil and 3 bean bags. The kids score points if they manage to throw their bean bag and hit a cone! Simple, great and effective! Enjoy!

P.E Deep Dive! A helping hand…

Last week on Wednesday one of my 8 Schools were the lucky winners of an Ofsted Inspection! P.E was chosen for the Deep Dive – to be honest the experience was intense yet enjoyable. Work is too busy at the minute to type out another detailed account – but I have managed to type out […]

Trip to Tokyo!

I hope everyone has had a good first day back, in the coming days I’m hoping to share quite a lot of my idea’s for the coming year. But for now I thought I’d share this quick and easy challenge my Schools are having a go at in this Olympic year. I hope this gets […]

The ‘headlines’ are these… There were 10, 660 hospital admissions directly attributable to obesity 29% of adults are classified as obese 20% of Year 6 children are classified as obese (in less affluent areas the prevalence of obesity is double than […]
