Last year’s Sports’ Day was a virtual one. Teachers and other staff stood in front of their Zoom cameras and led virtual events while children around the country jumped, skipped and hopped in front of their TVs and tablets! This year we are in school for Sports Day but the government guidelines mean that there will still be restrictions. With classes having to take part away from their peers, it’s a good idea to maybe try out some new PE activities. Here are two products on Mash worth considering:
We scoured the web for some examples of COVID-19 friendly Sports Days and we found a great example in the UK. St. Richard’s Primary School have a fantastic page on their website showcasing their Sports Day last year.
We were also impressed with STRIDE Active’s ideas for Socially-distanced Sports Days too. They are divided up into age groups. If you aren’t familiar with the UK system. KS1 roughly translates to Junior Infants to 1st Class and KS2 gets you from 2nd class to 5th/6th class.
