Well done to Amelie and Joel for designing and making this super banner on behalf of the Nar Valley Federation during Lockdown 1. A very important message to share far and wide!
The staff of Nar Valley Federation want to put a smile all our children's faces whilst our schools are closed.
Let your light shine and keep smiling!
IDEAS TO HELP STAY FIT AND ACTIVE AT SCHOOL AND HOME
During the school closures Norfolk School Games Organiser Network are creating and organising activities and resources for children at school or at home to continue to be active and improve their physical literacy.
To keep the week interesting, engaging and varied each day will have a theme:
‘Make it Monday’- Make something to use (a target, a goal, a new game) or be creative with a physical activity poster, a certificate or a medal.
‘Try it Tuesday’ – Give something new a try, learn a new skill
‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ – Try some yoga, stretches and mindfulness ideas
‘Timetable Thursday’ – Active Maths and Active English activities
‘Freestyle Friday’ – Anything goes, be creative, be wild, be physical
Each themed day will have ideas to support the theme and will be updated on Friday each week.
To access these ideas, visit the Active Norfolk website:
The company is also providing free resources online for parents to access from home.
Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity.
For children in Key Stage 2 there are carefully selected personal best challenges, skills and games designed for the home and garden. Daily and weekly guidance is provided for both programmes in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months.
