The COVID-19 outbreak has undoubtedly made school look a whole lot different at the moment. But one thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that physical activity is just as valuable, if not more so, for children’s physical and mental wellbeing right now.
With that in mind, we’ve pulled together a range of carefully chosen resources to help both teachers still delivering in school and parents who are home-schooling to keep children moving.
As life’s complicated enough at the moment we’ve kept the focus on easy activities that can be done in bite-sized chunks to break up the day, plus all of the physical activity content has been chosen to be relevant to the PE curriculum. There’s also information about healthy eating, ways to keep children safe online and more.
Going forward we’ll be looking at other ways to help schools react and adapt to the changes that COVID-19 is bringing, so please bookmark this page, so you can visit for updates as things evolve.
