Staying active and keeping healthy are really important for our bodies and minds at this time. Currently we are allowed out for the purposes of exercise so hopefully everyone is taking advantage of that and getting out for a run, walk or cycle as often as they can. I have gathered a collection of online resources to help inspire pupils and families with different activities that you can do in the home or outside in a garden too so that we can all keep enthusiastic about keeping fit. The first three links are from parents who homeschool their children on a long term basis and contain lists of activities you could pick from and use as appropriate. They are not written specifically for this time of social distancing so make sure you stick to the current government guidance when doing these!
The next three links are to Joe Wicks online daily PE workout and to Jumpstart Johnny’s website and Youtube hosted daily workout. Jumpstart Johnny is my favourite of these as he uses lots of silly moves and great songs to keep the kids (and adults) motivated.
This last link is for a website with loads of great ideas to keep bodies and minds active. You’ll need to log on to this one to access the resources though.
Here's a lovely idea from www.theottoolbox.com
Pick a letter, or get someone else it and then do the activity!
Go Noodle is a website the children know from school. We use the calming / mindfulness activities a lot but there are also lots of movement and energiser videos. You have to sign up for an account but it's free.
Hope you and your family enjoy all the activity suggestions for staying fit and healthy.
Take care all, Mr Jones
