Whilst completing work at home, it is very important to remember to stay active. Remember you are used to having playtime and lunchtime for burning off your extra energy and keeping fit, so that you can focus on your learning in class. You may not have the opportunity to get outdoors, so here are some things you can do daily, at home, to help you stay fit and use up that energy from staying indoors.
Yorkshire Sport Foundation and leading national organisations (including afPE, Active Partnerships and YST) are working with physical educators from across the country to support parents to teach PE at home.
Short two-minute videos will be posted that will show parents (and teachers) free, fun and easy to follow PE activities for the whole family to enjoy together.
Each #ThisIsPE video will focus on a different aspect of the National Curriculum. The videos, delivered by PE teachers, will help children and young people to continue their skill development in PE during this period when we are having to stay at home, to save lives.
Videos will be posted at 1pm on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You don’t need to be in PE kit and you don’t need sports equipment. All of the videos will use things that you can find around the home.
To view all the videos in one place a #ThisIsPE YouTube playlist has been created.
English National Ballet
Ballet is for everyone, everywhere, and we are working hard to continue to give you free access to great content, as well as ways to keep you dancing, active, and inspired.
This Girl Can have teamed up with Disney to create fun dance-along routines designed to enable the whole family to keep fit together. Routines include those from the Jungle Book, Moana and the Little Mermaid. Additional Disney Dance routines, indoor games and physical activities can be found on the Change4Life Website.

Tower Hamlets had the highest number of schools committed to The Daily Mile in London. The Daily Mile is free, requires no equipment and offers benefits to physical and mental health. The Daily Mile and the Healthy Lives Team would like to encourage children, teachers, parents and carers to participate in #DailyMileAtHome. The Daily Mile initiative can be undertaken as part of the government’s guidance on allocated daily exercise, whilst keeping a safe distance from others. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday there will be fun challenges to complete while undertaking 15 minutes of jogging or running, front door to front door in the fresh air. The challenge for Wednesday 22nd April and Thursday 23rd April is WEAR BLUE, where participants are encouraged to:
· Wear blue to show support for the NHS
· Wear ‘too-big’ T-Shirts
· Challenge yourself to see how many rainbows you can spot in the windows where you live
