How to keep your child active during Lockdown.
Langold Dyscarr Community School works closely with School Games and Active Notts to help promote all types of physical activity to ensure the health and well-being of our children. Due to the unusual situation that we now find ourselves in, they have asked us to continue to help promote the children staying active whilst they are at home. To help parents and carers to do this, they have created a weekly programme of activities to help you ensure they maintain an active routine. The weekly activities have a sport theme. Don’t worry, they have different suggestions for what you can use as substitutes for equipment the children might need as you will not necessarily have it at home. Each day, they give ideas of different activities that the children can do to keep them active at home. Every Friday, there is a virtual competition that the children can enter through - https://www.activenotts.org.uk/forms/view/sgvc. This will allow us to compete against other schools to see how many children are taking part in the project. Prizes are to be awarded to schools with the most entries which will enable the school to either buy more sports equipment or invite specialist teachers into the school to help teach your children. More information is provided about this in the document below which also has the daily suggested activities on it.
I will post the new programme every week as I receive it.
I really hope you encourage your children to take part.
School Games Award
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress. Langold Dyscarr Community School have just been awarded Bronze Level.
The Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark is online self-review tool which provides schools with a nationally recognised badge of excellence for PE and school sport. The tool supports schools to audit their PE provision and identify priorities for their development plan.
The tool has been aligned to Ofsted guidance supporting the PE and Sport Premium and comprises a series of straightforward benchmarking statements, where you can select your level of provision in these areas:
