At a time where we could easily find ourselves more sedentary, it is now more important than ever to take some time every day to concentrate on our children's physical and emotional well being. We were amazed with all our schools, teachers, children and parents' enthusiasm and commitment towards Physical Activity during the first lockdown and feel so lucky we were able to reach so many households. Once again, we find ourselves living in a virtual world, but this will not stop us helping you to find new and exciting ways of achieving those 60 minutes a day!
The Dorset School Organisers working in partnership with Active Dorset have developed fun resources and challenges to support families and schools to ensure that we can keep active and healthy during this challenging time of isolation. We will provide daily inspiration and inclusive activities which will encourage children and young people to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity every day. In the 'Related Files' section on this page you will find activity ideas and links to recommended resources.
School Games Organisers are supporting the national effort to ensure children and their families have access to fun ways of staying active. Being physically active for at least 60 minutes each day will help your child’s health, focus, wellbeing and increasing the enjoyment of spending more time at home. This page will be updated regularly so please check in for new ideas and activities.
