National School Sport Week 20th -26th June

How do you fancy challenging friends, family or neighbours to some fun, virtual sporting activities?

At national children’s charity, the Youth Sport Trust, we are determined to ensure that young people stay active and connected through this difficult time. We’ve been helping families do this with our daily #StayHomeStayActive activities since March and now we’re challenging the public to go one step further by joining us in our first ever National School Sport Week at Home, supercharged by Sky Sports.

Coundon Primary School is preparing to join the Youth Sport Trust and Sky Sports to help young people and families up and down the country engage in a week of virtual sporting challenges.

With young people set to miss out on their main school sport day this summer, the Youth Sport Trust is taking its annual National School Sport Week campaign beyond the school gates to parents and families – reinvented as National School Sport Week at Home.

Taking place from 20-26 June, the week will give families, communities, schools and sports clubs the opportunity to take part in a series of virtual sporting challenges which help young people capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they may be missing out on and the Youth Sport Trust is delighted that Sky Sports will be helping to supercharge the campaign.

Those with children that are staying home: All that you need to do to take part is follow the activities found in this PowerPoint, make a note of the scores that you get and send a copy off to your child’s class teacher.

Those with children that are in school: Your children will be carrying out the set activities in school within their Bubble. If they are home for part of the week, then they can continue their challenge at home.
