During the school closure, the PE and Games department have been busy creating a large resource bank on the school Firefly ranging from yoga sessions, High-intensity circuit sessions and skill-based tasks that can be undertaken. These can all be found here on Firefly.
To ensure the King’s Community remain active, pupils are being set weekly tasks to help keep them active. Using a simple points system, they are being challenged to complete a “250 challenge”. Each physical activity they complete gives them a certain number of points and they are encouraged to do this at least five times a week.
We have received a huge amount of feedback from this challenge and sessions are ranging from family walks, all the way through to 20-mile bike rides. The Upper Remove hit an impressive 15,000 points last week which was a great achievement. Some top scores came in from Oscar B with 900, Emily C at 550, Ellie H with 655, and Briony G with 870.
The Skills Challenge offers pupils a fun activity that all family members can take part in. Last week’s challenge involved making a basketball hoop and sock ball and completing a number of shots. An impressive time of 13s sees Max B top the tables.
Director Sport, Jonny Mason added, “It has been fantastic to see so much engagement with “The 250 Challenge” and to see how active our pupils are remaining in these challenging times and rising to the challenge of the weekly skills challenge too. We are getting some really great feedback from pupils and it’s really helping the community going whilst keeping everyone active at the sametime.”
