Joe Wicks has announced that he will do a live PE lesson for primary children on his YouTube channel at 9am every weekday from Monday. It sounds like it will be a great way of getting the children active and motivated at the beginning of each day!
Real PE at home – online learning resources
Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.
It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from next week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical well being but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:
Ashford Hill Learning from home, suggested timetable
We have created a timetable to split the day into useful activities and routines which may help with the close confines you may find yourselves in. This timetable is just a suggestion, your day does not have to be organised in this order and can be altered to fit in with your temporary home life situation.
The most important thing to take from this, is that routine and structure will help maintain your child’s/ren’s engagement and behaviour. Allowing for a reduced stressed environment for the entire family during this difficult time.
