Staying Active in School and at Home

During the school closures, Norfolk School Games Organiser Network will be creating activities and resources for children at school or at home to continue to be active and improve their physical literacy.

To keep the week interesting and engaging, each day will have a theme:

‘Make it Monday’- Make something to use (a target, a goal, a new game) or be creative with a physical activity poster, a certificate or a medal.

‘Try it Tuesday’ – Give something new a try, learn a new skill.

‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ – Try some yoga, stretches and mindfulness ideas.

‘Timetable Thursday’ – Active Maths and Active English activities.

‘Freestyle Friday’ – Anything goes, be creative, be wild, be physical.

To access these ideas, visit the Active Norfolk website: https://www.activenorfolk.org/active-at-home-kids
