Active activities!

Welcome to the Active activities page! It is important to do some physical activity everyday. We will post a new idea every Monday to help you stay healthy, but you can do any activity you like on any day.
Remember to stay safe - make sure you have a clear, safe space to do any indoor activities and follow government guidelines and ask your grown-ups about any outdoor activities.

Here are some fun Active Activities that I think you will really enjoy this week. Try them all or master one. As well as practising your P.E. skills and keeping you active, this will also give you a chance to practise using a growth mindset! Put your resilience to the test!

Let's get active! 

27.04.2020

This week's active activity comes straight from Mr Ellis and is a cricket one! This is an area of sport that I (Mrs Cochrane) am not the best at. So I will join in too! Start with week one's task and if you enjoy it and feel you want to try another challenge, move on to the next week! If you don't have a cricket/tennis ball, don't worry (neither do I), you can always use some socks, balled up (preferably not smelly ones though), or maybe an orange or bunch up some paper! You may need to get creative! If you are doing this activity inside, make sure the ball you use is not too hard and that you have plenty of space.


Just click the link below and give it a go (you may need to scroll down a bit once on the link).

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you have all had a lovely Easter break. I know that some of you will be missing being able to play football with your friends. So for this weeks Active Activity we would like you to brush up some of your football skills by doing some indoor drills!

Watch the link and give it a go! 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bATaDzDD_mI&feature=youtu.be

Doing this everyday will improve your control and upgrade your skills! You could record yourself each day to see the progress you are making. Let us know how it is going on Dojo. 

Remember to keep safe! Make a little bit of space in your house to practise these everyday. And, as the video says, do each drill at a slow pace to begin with. As you practise, you will get faster!

Let's try something new for this week's active activities. The links below will take you on a different yoga adventure. Yoga is a great way to enhance your strength, coordination and flexibility. It is also really good for your mind, helping you to stay calm and relaxed. Plus, these cosmic yoga videos follow a fun story! I have recommended a few that I think you will enjoy :) Have fun and stay active!
