Young people may be away from schools and we may be away from our office, but we remain committed to inspiring active futures – helping parents, carers and teachers deliver physical activity and PE at home.
We’ve developed Stride Away to help you with this.
Many schools will have provided a curriculum for their pupils to follow. These activities could be used in addition to their learning programme and not designed to replace it!
We have also put some of our own personal challenges and activities online – click here to see more!
Blue boxes shows links to activities that support physical education and the wider curriculum. These will help develop functional skills, knowledge and understanding as well as supporting a healthy active lifestyle .
Green boxes are links to activities that are primarily about physical fitness – there are some great activities to help young people achieve the recommended 60 active minutes a day.
Dark blue activities are Schools Games activities that are great fun, demonstrate the School Games values and can be done inside or out – some can even be adapted to use things that you can find around the house!
