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. Get on Sworkit and get active or even design your own workout. All login details should have been sent to parents via email but please get in touch with the office if not. 

  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

Whilst always at loggerheads on the Football pitch, both Sheffield United & Sheffield Wednesday have come together with the Premier League & English Football League to provide some resources for pupils to keep active in this lockdown period (and beyond):
 
SUFC: (15th-18th Feb-over half term)
The Premier League have developed lots of games and activities for you and your children to try out for an afternoon of fun – direct from your own homes! All the games and activities have been created to help get your child active while they are playing and help to boost your child’s development and learning in a virtual learning/sports festival through Primary Stars, that will take place over half term -
  
We would love to see you and your children taking part in our PLPS Virtual Sports Week! Please share pictures or videos of you all playing the games with us on social media @CommunitySUFC and have the chance to win a Nike Goody Bag. These activities can be done at anytime in the day!
 
SWFC:

Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme are working in partnership with the EFL Trust to deliver a national initiative called the Joy of Moving Winter Games. The Joy of Moving Winter Games is of a pack of fun activities designed to suit the current lockdown restrictions. 

The games and activities are designed to inspire active lifestyles in children, aiming to teach them how to enjoy moving through play and to help them develop positive habits for adulthood. All games and activities are appropriate for children in Key Stage 1 and 2.

 

Throughout February we would encourage families to post on social media about their involvement in the Joy of Moving Winter Games using #JOMWinterGames.

 

Please download both of the digital packs above and don't forget to tag us in any photos you take using: @HB_Juniors on Twitter & @HuntersBarJunior on Facebook.

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 

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

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

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 last lockdown Joe kindly offered to stream a live 'P.E. lesson' every weekday morning at 9am and he's coming back 3 days a week from Monday 11th January 2021.
 
 
Joe also has lots of child (and adult) friendly workouts at the link above. Most of these last no more than 20 minutes and are a great way to get active. "Bosh!"
