Lancashire School Games at Home - May Half Term
The Spar Lancashire School Games Holiday at Home programme provides children, young people and families with resources to go and explore, learn new skills and have a go at a variety of fun challenges. We want you to enjoy and explore your local area! 
Please see below the link to the Half Term Holiday at Home resource page. 
Build a den, learn how to create a compass, try 50 things before your 11 3/4, go on a scavenger hunt, and take a picture of your favourite local green space for a chance to win a Camera!
These Holiday at Home resources will hopefully provide young people and families with plenty to do during half term. 
We will be back with a Week 6 timetable on the 1st June, but in the meantime please use, circulate and enjoy the Half term resources and go and explore Lancashire!

Lancashire School Games Stay at Home Programme
Over the last few weeks Lancashire School Games Organisers,  Active Lancashire and Lancashire County Council have been working closely to produce the Lancashire Stay at Home Programme aimed at getting children to complete 60 minutes of activity a day whilst practising a new physical activity skill.


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:

  1. Move – A series of fun resources to choose from to help keep your children moving and active each day.
  2. Learn – A learning resources provided each week with supporting documents and videos for a particular skill from the P.E curriculum.
  3. 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.
  4. Play – Provides a series of resources for children to be active through play.
To access the daily timetable for week 9 (beginning 22nd  June), please click on the links below. There will be a new timetable each week. If you cannot access the timetable online you can access the pdf documents below.
