We all know you understand how important children's health is during the school's closure period- The Chief Medical Officer suggests that children participate in 60 minutes of moderate/ vigorous physical activity each day in order to maintain health. This challenge is a  a great way for families to stay active at home and you can even win prizes for yourselves and our school too . To help families stay on track during the Covid-19 UK lockdown, the website has created a free resource that links to the PE  curriculum and enables families to earn sports equipment for their primary school and Love2Shop vouchers for their family, by being active at home.


Here's how it works in 4 simple steps:


1) Download the free resources from the website; both interactive (online) and printable versions.


2) Do 15 minutes of Physical Activity with your child at home. Anything that elevates your child's heart rate through movement counts. We have included some great ideas of the types of activity you can do, on the leaflet.


3) Mark the relevant day on the Commonwealth Map.
