Physical Education at Home


It is possibly more important than ever before to keep children active at this challenging time.

Without the routine of regular physical activity at school, children are at a greater risk of developing poor habits and therefore having a detrimental effect on their physical and mental health.

Please find below a selection of online resources that will help your children experience the recommended 1 hour of physical activity required every day.

Stay safe - Stay healthy!

All of these resources have been created by quality assured providers, and downloads should be free to access.
