Hi Everyone,

Can you believe this is the last week of school. It is very strange not being in school and getting excited for the holidays with you all but it is exciting in a different way. I have done a video for today on Aladdin. There was a clue in your reports about your teacher next year and I confirm in the video.

Enjoy the last week of school and another fun active week- make sure to send on some photos!

There are lots of games, races and traditions attached to school sports day. Games such as the egg and spoon race, the sack race, the 3-legged race. Let’s revisit them in a virtual setting.

Activity 1 – Egg and spoon / spud and spoon race.

Each pupil gets a spoon and an egg (hardboiled or plastic). Each person must carry their egg on their spoon from the starting line to a turnaround point and back again. If the egg is dropped, the pupil must stop and retrieve it. You could make it a relay at home.

Activity 2 – Sack Race

Put both legs into a sack (shopping bag, bin bag) and hop around a cone, or some marked point, and back. You could race other family members or make a relay.

Activity 1 – Through the Gate

In pairs with one ball per pair (get creative if you have no ball – rolled up socks are good). Each person stands on a spot facing

their partner who is also standing on a spot a distance away. Set up a gate

between each pair using two cones (tins of beans, cereal boxes anything will do). Person A attempts to kick the ball to Person B

through the gate. One point is awarded for each pupil that successfully kicks the

ball through the gate.

Single pupils could play the game off a wall. Increase the distance to increase difficulty. Add some targets.

Kick to Score

Draw or stick target areas at various heights on a wall. Points should be placed in the centre of each target from one to five. The aim is to hit the targets on the wall to achieve a score. Who is the best in your house?

Pupils could try to score a penalty on Mom, Dad or a big brother or sister.
