Mr Cawthorne's Fitness Challenges
Join Mr Cawthorne each week for a fitness challenge.
Yorkshire Sport Foundation and leading national organisations, including afPE, have been working with physical educators from across the country to support parents to teach PE at home. Short two-minute videos are being posted that show parents (and teachers) free, fun and easy to follow PE activities for the whole family to enjoy together. Each #ThisIsPE video will focus on a different aspect of the National Curriculum. The videos, delivered by PE teachers, will help children and young people to continue their skill development in PE during this period. Videos will be posted at 1pm on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. children don’t need to be in PE kit and you don’t need sports equipment. All of the videos will use things that can be found around the home and they can be viewed at https://www.afpe.org.uk/thisispe-supporting-parents-to-teach-pe-at-home/

We all know how important it is for everyone to stay active particularly at this time. Here are just a few websites providing fitness activities and ideas. However, please ensure that you follow current government advice on social distancing at all times.
The #DailyMileAtHome: week 4 (Monday 27 April) resources to support physical activity
The #DailyMileAtHome is here to help children stay active. The aim is to encourage children to participate safely with their parents/carers in The Daily Mile – that's 15 minutes jogging or running, front door to front door, with some extra challenges to keep everyone motivated.
Every Monday, there will be three fun challenges for children to complete during the week. This week, we would love to see children do The #DailyMileAtHome and:
- complete the heartrate challenge: can they check their pulse at the start and end of their Daily Mile?
- wear blue to show support for the NHS
- do a 'different direction' Daily Mile – can they exercise somewhere you don't normally go or try a different route?
We would also love to see schools getting involved with these challenges – please share them with your school community and also join in on Twitter with #DailyMileAtHome. We would love to see more pictures of everyone completing the challenges and staying fit and active.
You can find more information about The #DailyMileAtHome here and this week's challenges can be found here.
Updated guidance for The Daily Mile is also available, in line with current Government guidance for Covid-19, including social distancing and only exercising with household members.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
REAL PE is a scheme that we use in school to teach a lot of our PE curriculum. It contains lots of excellent activities, games and challenges that help children to develop core physical skills such as agility, balance and coordination. They have temporarily made their REAL PE at home available for all our children to use. Please log in using the following details to access these excellent resources:
The website address is: home.jasmineactive.com
Parent email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you have logged in, you can watch an explanation video and then either follow the daily plans, which have links to all the activities OR click on the menu, select REAL PLAY, then HOME and choose from the many themed activities. Look out for the video camera icons that show demonstration videos of how to complete the challenges / games.
I hope you and your children enjoy using REAL PE. Mr A Cawthorne.
