You are all SUPERHEROES!!! This week perhaps you might say a BIG, BIG thank you to mums, dads , brothers, sisters and everyone who helped you while you have been at home, especially mums and dads- they have done such a great job keeping you safe while you have been at home.

Running Activity

Activity 1

Traffic Lights

Find a space in a playing area. On a signal, move around the playing area in

response to the following commands. Turn it into a game of moving statues to develop.

  • Red: stop
  • Amber: walk
  • Green: run

Activity 2- Rock Paper Scissors

Play with someone at home standing one metre apart and facing each other. Mark out two safe areas for each person. Each pair begins by performing a rock-paper-scissors routine. A rock is a closed fist, paper is a flat hand, and scissors are the index and middle fingers in

a cutting position. Paper always covers rock, rock breaks scissors, and scissors cut

paper. To determine a winner, count to three and form a rock, paper, or scissors. The winning person then chases their partner toward their safety line, attempting to tag them before they are safe. Line up again and repeat the activity.

Children can choose if they would like to design a medal or for children looking for a challenge they can write an acrostic poem:

Traditional Sports Day Games

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.

Kicking

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.
