On the 25th June it was meant to be our Sports day. Unfortunately, we won’t get a chance to do this altogether this year. But …… why not bring Sports Day into your household? You could compete against your family- brothers, sisters, dad, mum, carers, grandparents or even the dog!
This is a fun activity and the main idea is to have FUN with your family!
The referee is in charge of recording the points and may deduct one point if you aren’t showing good sportspersonship. If there is an activity that isn’t your strong point- use your resilience and try your best. You could also use this as a learning curve to practise a particular activity a little more. All of these activities listed below will help with some form of PE skills e.g. strength, hand eye coordination, accuracy, speed, balance.
