GOOD NEWS!! The Premier League have made their fantastic keep fit/learning resources available for everybody during the Coronavirus crisis. The children love these fun, physical workouts at school and now they can access them at home - ideal while they are stuck indoors.They are linked to school learning across the WHOLE curriculum so it's win, win, win! Follow the photos below from left to right. No subscription and no log in needed. Google Super Movers and try some of the fun, physical videos. It would be great to see some examples of children working out to SUPERMOVERS! Try the 6X Tables with Fred the Red.
Why not try some of these games at home - be careful not to break anything!
Activity of the day is catching practice in pairs. If you don't have a ball you can use a balled up pair of scocks, clean ones only please!
Parents will love today's exercise as kit involves pairing up socks and throwing them into a box, bowl or even drawer!!!! Yes I know it's not cool to wear a matching pair.
Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire School Games groups have come together to produce a fantastic A-Z of sporting activities for you to all try at home. School Games are the group that organise most of our local school sports competitions. A stands for ATHLETICS and we start with the Standing Long Jump. Children have all done this as part of their termly personal bests. Remember practice makes perfect and you'll smash your personal bests when we're back at school.
Try the Treasure Chest game and use socks, shoes, small balls and toys as treasure.
B is for Basketball. If you have safe space outside try dribbling a ball by pushing it down from the top. How many bounces can you do in 60 seconds? Not a good idea indoors though if people live underneath your flat! Basketballers are BIG, NBA player Manute Bol was 7 feet and 7 inches tall. Mr Blakeman is 5 feet and 11 inches tall (6 feet in his trainers!). How many metres/ centimetres is this?
C is for CHALLENGE and learning to Juggle. Use rolled up socks or small balls.
ow many times can you skip in 60 seconds? Try two footed hops if you don't have a skipping rope. This is good practice for your speed bounce personal bests.
D is dodgeball and a MUGA favourite for Year 1s up to Year 6s. This is a great warm up game to use at home. Choose one catcher and one thrower. The thrower says CATCH or DODGE when they throw the ball and the catcher has to do the opposite - so catch means dodge and dodge means catch, simple! As ever use rolled up socks or a small, soft toy if you don't have a ball.
E is for ENDURANCE or keeping going for a long time when you are very tired, especially when running! How far can you run in 13 minutes? REMEMBER: loose arms and low knees when running for a long time and imagine you are running MUGA laps. We can't all be Mo Farah and run 5km in that time but you might run 1km or more. YOU CAN DO THE MOBOT (see photo) when you have finished.
F IS FOR FOOTBALL! Try dribbling a ball in and out of cones like we do in the MUGA. Without the school cones you can use small toys, objects or balled up socks or tops. Try 5 cones and remember to keep your head over the ball and use the inside of your foot. GOOD LUCK. To make it more difficult use more cones or a smaller ball, like a tennis ball. If you find it difficult you can pick the ball up and roll it around the cones.What sport will begin with the letter G tomorrow?
