Monday 27th April – Friday 1st May was due to be “Active Schools Week” #ASW.
As schools are closed, schools around the country will instead take part in the #ActiveHomeWeekChallenge.
“Children and young people need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.”
(World Health Organization)
The Active Home Week Challenge is to do 60 minutes of physical activity every day. We suggest you do 4 activities for 15 minutes each. Activities like going for a walk & cycling your bike count as physical activity so make sure to count these activities if you do them. Remember to follow HSE guidelines when exercising outdoors. “Exercise outdoors - within 2 kilometres of your home and only with people from your own household - keeping 2 metres between you and other people” (HSE)
Your teacher will send you suggested activities & links. Keep doing any of the activities you enjoy. Please feel free to share any extra activities you come up with at home. Keep account of your daily activities & send back to your teacher. We would also love to see any pictures or videos of you getting involved in Active Home Week to share here on the school website & our Twitter @stmarysjuniorb2
