During the lockdown period we are spending more and more time sat down and behind our screens. It is important for our physical and mental health to move as much as we can and break up sitting time.
As part of the Spring into Action campaign which will start on Monday 22nd February and run for 5 weeks we will be setting weekly 60 second challenges for children (and staff and families) to complete at home or in school. These are really simple 60 second challenges (see below) which can be done inside with limited space/equipment and can be adapted to make easier or harder. They can also be used by teachers at the start/end of a lesson or as a quick movement break during a lesson. Children will be encouraged to try and beat their score throughout the week and attempt the challenge as many times as possible to break up screen/sitting time.
|Week 1||Star Jumps Challenge|
|Week 2||Catch & Clap Challenge|
|Week 3||Speed Bounce Challenge|
|Week 4||Tap Up Tennis Challenge|
|Week 5||Wall Ball Challenge|
These challenges are a small part of supporting children and young people to meet the daily physical activity guidelines with children encouraged to find other activities to build into their daily routine to help them achieve their 60 active minutes a day of physical activity.
