Physical Activities

Physical Activity Page

 

Hello and welcome to the HBJ Physical Activity Page. This page is designed to give pupils, parents and carers ideas to support both mental and physical health during this time of school closure. Below are some useful links to resources which can be used to support physical health along with some suggestions as to how best to use these resources.

Keep tuning into this page for more suggestions, ideas and maybe even some contact from HBJ staff having a go at keeping themselves physically and mentally healthy whilst school remains shut.

Whilst away from school, we would like children to carry out at least 30 minutes of physical exercise each day and at least 10 minutes of mindfulness and wellbeing activities. 

Here are some good suggestions to support with keeping physically healthy. 

  1. Use the Wimbledon AFC workout sheets on your year group page to design your own 10-15 minute home workouts. You could use these to create a family challenge. 

  2. To keep active, have a look at ‘active at home’ ideas sheet and use the following links to access great resources to help you all get moving

  3. The Locomotor skills games are also a fun and easy way to get active at home

 

Parents and carers, please check the suitability of any videos on youtube as not all content will necessarily be age appropriate.

FYI: New content will be displayed at the top of this page and then moved to the bottom as it's replaced by newer content. 

Swimming Activities 
 
Schools Swimming have pulled together some fun swimming activities for you do in school or at home. They include water safety worksheets from the Swimming Teachers Association, a word-search, videos of some swimming skills that pupils can practice and a link to Swim England’s home-school activity sheets.
These activities are suitable for children in Year 1 to Year 6. They can colour, spot dangers or even practice kicking off their socks while sitting on the sofa! 
 

 Here is a link to the videos 

 

 The Swim England Activities Sheets can be found here 

Fit Kids Club Fitness 

 

We've enjoyed training with The Body Coach in school. If you're looking for some training on the days he's not broadcasting we've also been doing some Fit Kids Club fitness & dance training with Beachbody & Shaun T.
There are lots of different videos available though take a look & give them a go

Sworkit 

 

Some of our students have channelled their inner Joe Wicks!

They not only designed but also completed a 30 minute fitness workout on Sworkit with Mr Adebola.

 

Have a go and let us know what you think we will keep adding new workouts that are created below...

 

You can also use the AFC Wimbledon resources below to design your own workout if you don't have regular access to a computer or mobile device

Joe Wicks -The Body Coach
 
 
"Oi oi!"
For those of you not aware of Joe Wicks, he is a personal trainer and cookbook author with a passion for fitness and helping people to make healthy lifestyle choices. The children at Hunter's Bar might be familiar with him from some in class workouts and P.E. lesson slots at school.
 
During the period of school closure, Joe has kindly offered to stream a live 'P.E. lesson' every weekday morning at 9am. The link to this is here 
It would be fantastic way to make an active start to your day and to join a community of children all doing the same workout at the same time.
 
Joe also has lots of child (and adult) friendly workouts on YouTube. Most of these last no more than 20 minutes and are a great way to get active. "Bosh!"
