National School Sports Week
As a school, we are preparing to join the Youth Sport Trust and Sky Sports to help young people and families up and down the country engage in a week of virtual sporting challenges.
With pupils set to miss out on their main school sport day this summer, the Youth Sport Trust is taking its’ annual ‘National School Sport Week’ campaign beyond the school gates to parents and families - reinvented as ‘National School Sport Week at Home’.
Taking place from 20th to 26th June, the UK-wide campaign will give families the chance to capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they have been missing out on during weeks of school closures and social distancing.
With social distancing in place, pupils and staff will be taking part in the week by completing a number of at home challenges as well as a daily personal challenge. The personal challenges are outlined below and each will have more detail on your daily home learning sheet. There is also a booklet of ideas for the children to choose a home challenge which they can enjoy with family on our school website in the news section.
Saturday 20th June - Wash basketball/ Bin Basketball
Sunday 21st June - Speed Bounce
Monday 22nd June - Star Jumps
Tuesday 23rd June - Plank
Wednesday 24th June - Keepy upys
Thursday 25th June - Dribble
Friday 26th June - Stair step-ups
NOTE: This is set Monday to Friday so focus on those challenges please.
We encourage everyone to take part including family and friends and would love to see your efforts and completed challenge record sheets by sharing a photo or video with our school twitter page (@ecclaneends). Remember, you can submit your scorecards to your teachers on Friday through Seesaw.
