Monday 20th June- Friday 26th June 2020
This week is officially National School Sports Week this week and to celebrate the Youth Sports Trust and Sky Sports have joined to try and encourage people around country to take parts in sport at home. All you have to is register which is quick, easy and completely free and you can then take part in lots of different and fun sporting events throughout the week. There are a variety of different challenges including 60 second Physical Activity Challenges which you might enjoy as they include a lot of the exercises used in Joe Wicks such as squat challenges, bunny hops and star jumps.
You can ask your parents to help you register and I really encourage you to try these activities as we won;t be having a Sports Fay this year and this is the perfect substitute. It is a lovely way to bring all of us together through Sport despite still being in Lockdown and in these strange and difficult times.
For any challenges that I see from Sports Week on your blogs I will be awarding you 20 J2STARS so it really is worth joining in! There is even a challenge sheet that you can download to show you progress and achievements as you work through the week- I have sent a link to it below along with other useful links to events, activities and resources from the website.
60 Second Challenge Sheet- Track your Progress and Achievements throughout the week
The Daily Mile
Miss Neville has very kindly told all of the teachers about The Daily Mile for children so this week I am going to set you a special challenge. I love running and try and incorporate this into my daily routine to keep me fit and healthy and it is so good for my Mental Health. The weather is meant to be better this week so it is a perfect opportunity to get all of you running along with me. Therefore, this week, I challenge you all to try and run or walk a mile every day, either in your gardens, or outside in the community, such as in the park or in the pavement. Running is so good for your body and fitness and it s a completely free activity to do, plus I promise you it makes you feel so good after! It is brilliant for your well-being and general Mental Health- make sure you either post photos or videos on your blog of you running your mile so I can give you lots of j2stars I really encourage you to try and run the mile but if you are struggling, you can walk, as long as it is a brisk pace! !

BIRMINGHAM SCHOOL GAMES
Miss Arnold has asked us to tell you about The Birmingham School Games challenge which is now up and running. It's a virtual portal where new challenge will be set up each week and the children can then upload their personal bests. There will be prize for individuals who finish in the top 5 for each challenge. Once a challenge has been completed, and if you are in the top 5 you will receive a virtual School Games Value Bade that was assigned for that child. Once school has resumed, and it if safe to do so, they can receive a real and physical badge. This is a really great way to focus some of our more competitive children and for them to represent the school during these difficult times when we can't have a Sport Day day for this year and events face to face. All of this information is now under the Home Physical Activity/ Physical Education for the children of St Rose tab of the website as well as a parent letter. The link to here can be found below:

Making a Maze
Click on the website link below to discover how to make a maze. This is a team building game that challenges teams solve a problem very collaboratively. The team need to discover a path through a labyrinth, the path is hidden.The labyrinth is represented by a grid on the floor. The path is a series connected squares travelling from one end of the grid to the other. When a team member steps off the path, they will need to start again. To make this suitability challenging, the labyrinth is solved in silence. It requires the team to support each other in order to succeed. Ultimately it will create feelings of euphoric success demonstrating what the team can achieve when they work together. The game can be scaled by having multiple teams play simultaneously, creating a competition.
