VIRTUAL CALENDAR: See our autumn term calendar here
During the Autumn term we promoted the Sportshall Athletics School Games competition for infants, primary and secondary schools up to Year 8. This was part of the London Youth Games School Games programme across London and open to all schools in all London Boroughs.
This term we ran a cultural competition for children in key stage 1 and another for key stage 2. Linked to the NHS recommendation that children aged 5 to 18 years old should do at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day to maintain a basic level of health, we invited children from KS1 to submit a drawing of their favourite game or activity to play indoors. KS2 children were invited to create/design a new active game for the classroom and provide a picture and brief instructions of the activity.
During the summer term we ran a cultural competition for children in key stage 1 and another for key stage 2. The competition was an intra school event for children both in school and at home.
Content will be updated regularly with resources for parents and carers to access directly from home, to encourage families to stay active.

TopYa Challenges – Jan to March

Despite the covid-19 lockdown easing, many children and young people are still spending a lot more time at home than under normal circumstances and there remains huge challenges for parents, families, communities and schools to keep kids active.
Recent data released by Sport England revealed that in lockdown only 19% of children and young people were meeting the Chief Medical Officer’s guidelines for activity; 43% were less active than before the outbreak and one in four young people admitted that they were doing no activity at all.
Physical activity must be a vital part of every child’s day and the sector has been working hard since March to make activity at home more widely available and as accessible as possible for all children and young people.
