On Friday 24th April at 9:30 the LFC Foundation and the PL Primary Stars team will be hosting our very first online Big Red School Sports Day.
The day will be a mix of fun activities for kids and families to do at home. After each activity the pupil will have the opportunity to self assess their own performance and track the progress using the form attached.
Its basically a school sports day done at home via social media. We will be using both Twitter and Facebook for this and the activities involved use household objects. So its pretty much accessible to all.
There is also a downloadable Certificate for the kids and we may have a few special guest getting involved.
As the pupils can not take part in their usually gymnastics lessons ran by Beth Tweddle Gymnastics they have set up some online resources for the pupils to use at home.

Resources will cover Maths, English, Physical Activity and Health and Wellbeing for Key Stage 1 (5-7 year-olds) and Key Stage 2 (7-11 year-olds), with fun activities to keep children active and learning at home.
Further activities and resources will be added to those below, including more maths, reading and writing challenges, so please do return for more.
These have been successfully used in thousands of primary schools and we are now making them available for families. Some resources have more detail and may require further support from parents, carers or teachers.
PowerPoint may be required for some resources.
