60 SECOND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY CHALLENGES

A fun ‘compete against yourself’ approach to physical activity with a focus on resilience and perseverance and the aim to achieve bronze, silver or gold medal targets. A range of activity cards and videos available on their website.

Personal Challenge Videos

It is the mission of the School Games to provide ‘more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their Personal Best’. This includes competing against oneself and others to improve personal performances with a focus on the process rather than the outcome (on the learning and values development of the young person rather than just the result). For some inspiration, watch some personal challenges created by young people, have a go yourself, or create your own.

 

PE HOME LEARNING

PE activities can be done individually or in pairs/small groups with a focus on the development of physical competence and actively learning the importance of personal skills to support social, emotional and mental wellbeing.

 

Activity cards

Created in partnership with Complete PE, there are activity cards available across all PE curriculum areas on the Youth Sport Trust website, with each card brought to life with a short video clip. You can download and share the activity cards and can access the paired video by clicking on the YouTube link next to the activity.

Premier Education have been busy recording Activity Professional lead home learning videos as part of their commitment to keeping children active at home.

 

They have launched a brand new YouTube channel where new videos will be released each day at 3.30 pm. The idea is that this can act as an after school home learning activity and replace the exercise children would normally get during extra-curricular clubs (at school). Sessions will focus on activities including dance, football, fitness, gymnastics, basketball, tennis and yoga and more.

Save the air, walk there!

 

Use the map below to plan your walking journey to and from school.

 

 

We want to encourage all our children to walk to school as there are many benefits.  Here are a few:

 

  • Fitness and health

 

It's advised that children need at least one hour of physical activity each day.  Walking to school is a great way of exercising.

 

Plan your journey to school through traffic-free roads and quieter routes to avoid high levels of pollution.

 

  • Concentration at school

 

Studies show that children can burn off excess energy by walking to school thereby allowing them to settle in class and focus on learning.

 

  • Road safety skills

 

'Good habits learned young are learned well' https://walkit.com/walking-to-school/

Teach children how to walk safely to school so they can continue to do this as they get older.

 

  • Socialising and independence

 

A walking bus or walking to school with friends when older, can help children build friendships.  As a parent, walking to and from school with your child is a great way of having time in the day to bond - relaxing and talking.

STARS – Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe

Going for Gold!

 

STARS – Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe – is an accreditation scheme for schools, nurseries and colleges to inspire young Londoners to travel sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely.

 

In doing this, STARS empowers pupils and improves the safety and wellbeing of the whole community. It also encourages active travel behaviour and improves the environment around the school.

 

Almost 1,500 schools, nurseries and colleges in London are STARS accredited and we, Seven Sisters Primary School are one of them.

 

Participation in STARS can benefit the whole school community:

  • Children are healthier; pupils are more energetic and better prepared to participate throughout the school day
  • Improved attendance and academic success
  • Fewer cars, less congestion and improved air quality around the school
  • Equipping young people with valuable life skills to travel actively, responsibly and safely
  • Recognition within the school, the local community and across London for travel related achievements

 

On 18 October 2016 our children went to The Camden Centre to collect the gold sustainable travel award.  They had fun making badges. being speed super heroes and using peddle power to make smoothies - yum!

 

 

Gold

To get the gold award we had to be able to:

  • Complete 40 different travel activities within three academic years
  • Provide evidence for each activity completed (eg a photo or meeting minutes)
  • Demonstrate at least a 6% modal shift away from the car or at least 90% of pupils travelling via non-car modes
  • See a high level of participation and engagement in active travel across the whole school community
