Usually during Term 3 of the school year, we’d be spending this time preparing for our Annual School Sports Day and this year will be no different.
The sports organisation, Healthy Kidz, have created a number of fun sporting events that will allow you to compete against the other pupils in our school, by recording your results in the Healthy Kidz App.
The Resource Pack attached will provide you with the information you need to get signed up, set up these events and improve all of the components of your physical fitness in preparation for the Healthy Kidz Home Sports Day.
Beginning Monday 11th May, we’re asking you to stay active at home, by practicing all of the different events using the Coaching Tips and Preparation advice.
Once you’ve given each of the 7 events a go, you'll be asked to choose your 5 favourites and complete them using the guidance on *Saturday, 13th June*, recording your results in the Healthy Kidz App. You can then compare your results with your friends to see who managed to get the best score in each event.
There is also a ‘Create Your Own Obstacle Course’ challenge, which you can start thinking about prior to Sports Day.
As part of their 20 for 20 campaign, Healthy Kidz have teamed up with SPAR, EUROSPAR, VIVO, VIVOXTRA, VIVO ESSENTIALS, who will be offering a £20 voucher to one lucky winner at each participating school to spend at their local SPAR, EUROSPAR, VIVO, VIVOXTRA or VIVO ESSENTIALS store when social distancing has ended. To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is record a 20-day streak on the Healthy Kidz App, which can include Sports Day Practice, Sport, Exercise, Healthy Eating or Wellbeing activity.
