Virtually boccia is made up of three rounds, with each round consisting of four activities which will require the students to control either/both pace and line to hit, land on or roll over a target. If you do not have boccia equipment or access to PE equipment, then don’t panic. The activities can be completed using other PE or home equipment (i.e. tennis balls, bean bags, socks).

The activities have been well received by the schools with a teacher from Essex saying, ‘thank you for this it has gone down really well with both our children in school and at home.’ A Northamptonshire teacher echoing this message for their school ‘The competition is going great and our home learners are really engaging too.’ Jacob, Yr 6 in Essex thinks that these games will make him a better player and although Viya, Yr 5 also from Essex, found the Hopscotch game ‘so difficult’ she enjoyed the activities. 

While students were at home, Haylie, a teacher in Shropshire was able to engage over 220 students through virtual classrooms using teams, and breaking out into break out rooms.
