Last week, your parents/carers should have received an email from myself and Mr Smith in relation to a PE festival taking place next week. The 'Joy of Moving Home School Festival' is aimed at Key Stage 2 children, and consists of fun activities based on the theme of active healthy lifestyles. We would like as many of you to take part in this event.
I have posted the resource booklet below.
It would be lovely to see some of the things you get up to so please feel free to email school or ask your parents to tweet us with some pictures of you getting involved.
Enjoy and as always, take care!
We wanted to bring your attention to an online programme to support families in encouraging children to be active and remain on the move during these challenging times.
The ‘Joy of Moving’ online hub
The ‘Joy of Moving UK’ have created a website and resource hub designed for children and families to access from home to promote daily exercise. The website is:
‘Joy of Moving’ state that their programme is ‘designed to inspire active lifestyles in children, aiming to teach children how to enjoy moving through play, and to help them develop positive habits for adulthood.
The games and activities are based on our unique Joy of Moving methodology, developed by independent parties, including Foro Italico (Rome University) and the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI). This approach inspires children to move through play whilst developing key skills in four major areas: physical fitness, motor coordination, cognitive functions and creativity and life skills.’
The ‘Joy of Moving Home School Festival’
The ‘Joy of Moving UK’ are working in partnership with ‘Reds in the Community’ and are promoting an event, which will take place during the week 18th to 22nd May 2020.
Aimed at Key Stage 2 children, the ‘Joy of Moving Home School Festival’ consists of a flexible timetable of fun activities based on the theme of active healthy lifestyles. We would like as many of our Key Stage 2 children to take part in this event.
As we do not yet know when schools are likely to re-open, we recognise that our children may miss out on their yearly ‘Sports Day’ and therefore this is a great opportunity to encourage Park Street pupils to get active.
The resources that will be used for the festival will be sent out digitally by class teachers via Seesaw and/or their class blogs on the school website. We will also ensure that any resources you need in order to take part are posted on the school’s PE page (https://www.wombwellparkstreet.co.uk/pe-blog). Should you not have access to Seesaw/the school website, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can arrange other methods of getting the resources to you.
One final thing, there is a competition element to the festival where three families nationwide can win £500 worth of sports equipment for our school by participating in the event. It would be wonderful if we could say that one of the winning families was from Wombwell Park Street Primary!
Many thanks for your continued support,
