We will be adding new material and challenges in addition to the ones we had from last year, for the children to stay active and stimulated whilst learning from home during this latest lockdown.

Safety when doing PE at home
Parents and carers are responsible for ensuring that children are safe when carrying out physical activities in their homes/gardens. That children are wearing appropriate clothing to take part in each activity and have sufficient space to do the task safely. Parents and carers are responsible for supervising activities where required and for seeking medical advice in advance if your child has a medical condition that may prevent them taking part in physical activity.

Activity tracker - Boston Sport Partnership
Matt Haslam from the Boston School Sport Partnership has devised a simple fitness challenge / log for the pupils who will be working remotely. It is a way of keeping pupils motivated and on the move during these winter months.
The activity tracker, which you can download below, can be completed by pupils or parents. They need to record physical activity onto the sheet, it could include walking time, cycling time, in fact any type of exercise.
It is being launched by St. Mary’s from Tuesday, 12th January and you simply log any physical activity over a 14-day period, count the minutes you are active each day and then record the total minutes. You can e-mail completed logs to Mr. Cooper using Y1’s e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Every participant at St. Mary’s will be awarded a merit, with the most active member of Key Stage 1 and the most active member of Key Stage 2 receiving 3 merits.
Matt Haslam will be collating the results and is running an inter-school competition to find the school with the most participants and the individual who does the most minutes.
Adults and families are encouraged to get involved too and if you can, post photos using #2021FitnessChallenge and tag @bostonssp on Twitter.
