Home and School PE
Message for parents.
We do hope you are all well and managing through these challenging times.
This page is devoted to parents, guardians, carers, class teachers and anyone looking after the young people in Chelmsford. We hope to support you in keeping your children physically active. We understand it may be challenging to find ways to keep the children active and socially distanced, so we have tried to think of creative ways to help.
Please read the letter below for parents , which sets the context and how to use the resources.
Take time to have a look at each tab below. We have added ideas on a weekly basis , through the”weekly sheets , which offers ideas for both KS1 and KS2 , so if your children need to be active at home, in the holidays and at weekends, you simply choose an activity from any weekly sheet.
There are many resources to download and we have video physical challenges in all different sports for your children to try .
We hope you find this useful and that the children and you , enjoy some of the ideas below.
Take care and stay safe,
Sara Robson & Chris Huartson
Message to Primary Teachers, Coaches and Staff
We do hope you and your children can enjoy taking part in many of the virtual activities and competitions that we have planned for this term, when we are in school. We hope to make it as easy as possible for you to get your classes competing within school( level one ), against other schools ( level 2 ) and even County level ( level 3 ) for three of our competitions.
Virtual Competitions : All you need to do is click on the Virtual competitions tab to get the rules for the competitions : Football, Gymnastics, Cheerleading , Sports hall Athletics amongst a few . You also need to click on the Physical Challenges Virtual Competitions video tab to get video guidance for each of these competitions.
For any other questions we shall be holding a ZOOM CPD Questions and Answers meeting for each competition should you need any further support.Get your PLT ( PE Coordiantor to you book on).
Home Learning . When the children are at home, we have included daily activities for each age group, that you can send home for them to do. Hand out the 2021 Activity tracker, which can also be a good way to get children to track their daily activities and aim towards reaching 60 minutes a day of activity.
Resource Loan for Children of Key Workers . Speak to your PE coordinator about borrowing equipment from us to add variety to your lessons, Archery , Boccia, Kurling, Speedstacks and Tri Golf .
Skip Hop Hurray . In September over 6,000 children, staff and school communities took part in our skipping festival to music, outside on school grounds. We wanted the children to enjoy a big sporting event, that was safe, fun and physically active. As a result of this fun day , we also produced a skipping video to use in your classrooms and an activities booklet too. Start in the classroom, with children at their desks, skipping without ropes and then take the actions outside later , with ropes at play times and in PE lessons. There are routines for all key stages but start at the beginning and work through.
Skip For A Min: Following on from the skip Hop Hurray day , we now have a Skip for A Min challenge. Each child can do a daily skip activity and record the number of skips they do. The children can challenge themselves to get quicker and see how many skips they can do in a minute. The booklets to record their daily skip are on this page and whether at home, with or without a rope, they can do their daily skipping. ( Government recommends 60 active minutes a day).
Lets get our children enjoying sports and competitions again and we thank you in advance for your support. We are confident we can continue to be one of the top School Sport Partnerships for participation and enjoyment ! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any support.
Take care and stay safe
