Sports Day Week!

Good morning everyone,

Hope you have all been enjoying the lovely warm weather we are having and are staying safe! 🙂

Unfortunately due to recent events we have missed one of our favourite days of the year – sports day! I know many of our pupils and staff look forward to it every year, so instead we are going to have an entire sports week, and theme our PE grids around it!

The P1-2 grid is full of family fun sports day activities!

Whereas the P3-4 and P5-7 grids have beat the teacher challenges with some familiar faces to compete against!

Balance & Control

Balance is the ability of your muscles to maintain control of your whole body. Having good balance allows you to hold your position still, without wobbling, and to change direction quickly and safely.

PE Tasks

Hi Everyone,

I have started to post some material and assignments for all classes. There is absolutely no pressure to complete any of these PE tasks. The main goal is to continue being active every day whether it is through these tasks or by other means.

Before starting our home learning journey each class was working on the following:

  • P1 – Dance & Fitness
  • P1/2 – Dance & Fitness
  • P2 – Dance & Fitness
  • P3 – Dance & Fitness
  • P4 – Dance & Fitness
  • P5 – Gymnastics
  • P6 – Dance & Fitness
  • P7 – Orienteering & Fitness

This week would have been our last week focusing on these activities before Health Week which was due to start week beginning 30/03/2020. The tasks I put up on blogs or google classroom will try to tie in with what the pupils would have been doing in school.

I will put up any additional ideas for physical activity on this blog to help keep you active everyday so keep checking for updates!

How To Get Started

Good morning everyone,

Your goal for this week is to be physically active every day!

Physical Activity Guidelines (5-18)

A good place to start is P.E. with Joe every morning from 9:00am.


Or Cosmic Kids Yoga at a time that suits you – they have so many brilliant videos!


If you are trying to limit the amount of time you spend looking at a screen, use this Alphabet Workout to write down all the exercises that spell your name. You can use this as part of your daily exercise routine.



For variety you can use your middle name or use a different family members name each time you complete the workout!






If you are needing an extra challenge, try the extreme alphabet workout: 





Please keep checking the blog regularly for any updates and I will be adding tasks for individual classes onto their google classrooms or class blog in the coming days.
