The Joy of Moving Home School Festival
We want children from KS2 to join in with The Joy of Moving Home School Festival on the afternoon of Thursday 21st May. It is a sports based programme by Accrington Stanley Academy Trust designed to keep pupils active.
The aim of the weekly set of resources is to provide young people and families many opportunities to remain as active as possible during the current circumstances. This is delivered through a weekly timetable of daily activities. There are four different activities to choose from, each with a different theme. The themes are:
- Move – A series of fun resources to choose from to help keep your children moving and active each day.
- Learn – A learning resources provided each week with supporting documents and videos for a particular skill from the P.E curriculum.
- Challenge – A weekly challenge linked to the learn activity so the children can try to achieve their personal best and take part in competition with family.
- Play – Provides a series of resources for children to be active through play.
KS1 Timetable - week beginning 6th July (week 11)
Year 1-2 The learn and challenge will focus on bouncing, and there is also a great gymnastics sequence card for young people to try.
KS2 Timetable - week beginning 6th July (week 11)
Year 3-6 Learn is physical tetris and the challenge is an amalgamation of the previous 9 weeks and John Farnworth challenges.
Early Years Resource Page - Lancashire School Games have released an Early Years (0-5) resource page with some skill videos, so children at this young age can still develop their skills.
