Health and fitness week
Have a look at the suggested activities below. Throughout the week, choose a selection to complete (you don't need to do them all!). Other year groups at BJS have been set very similar tasks so if you have any siblings you can enjoy the H&F activities together! If you don't, we're sure parents and carers would love to get outside and have some fun with you!
We really hope you enjoy these activities and that you have a fantastic week. Please remember to take lots of photos and send them to us either via the year3 email or (if you would like them to be uploaded to Mr Webster's blog) to the main BJS email address!
Please ensure children are properly supervised when using the internet.
Sports and games
Please use this week to get out (or stay in!) and exercise as much as you can! Health and fitness week is always very full on. In the past we have: played rounders, run the magic mile, played basketball, participated in sports day, completed obstacle courses, taken part in dance sessions, learnt how to skateboard, played golf, gone on woodland adventures, run the bleep test, practised our freestyle footy, played tennis, practised curling and so much more!
So, as well as completing some of the activities below, use the week to be as sporty as you can!
My Exercise Log
Keep track of how you keep active each day in your Exercise Log!
Remember to add to it each day. You can make your own version if you can’t print it.
Design your own Olympic park
The Olympic games have sadly been postponed until next summer.
What sports will athletes be competing in?
What different venues do you think they will have built in Japan?
Have a look on the Olympic games website to find out more:
Please supervise children online
Have a go at designing your own Olympic park. What venues and buildings would you need to include?
Draw and label a bird’s eye view map of your park
You could have buildings for ‘Olympic sports’ such as athletics and a velodrome for cycling.
Or how about your ideal Olympics with all of your favourite sports!
Make sure you label the different venues and colour it in carefully.
Run your own sports day 2020!
Open 'Run Your Own Sports Day 2020' and follow the instructions:
Create your own sport game
Use 'Create Your Own Sport Game' to you help you.
Have a look at the second page which has one started to give you an idea how to fill it out. Once you’ve created the game, see if you are able to play it with your family – if possible!
Food label hunt
Have you ever noticed the traffic light systems on the front of food packages? These labels are supposed to help us make healthy choices.
Using the PDF below, investigate some food labels and record the information they give you.
You can print the sheet or copy in the information straight into your book.
Use what you have learnt about the 'Eat well plate' in English to help you.
If you chose not to complete the healthy eating task in English, use this NHS link to help you: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/eat-well/the-eatwell-guide/
Please supervise children online
Hula Hoop Challenges
If you have a hula hoop at home, have a go at Hula Hoop Challenges below!
Explore the outdoors
If the weather allows, and you are able to do so safely, spend some time outdoors!
You could try the following things:
Do a scavenger hunt in your garden - draw and label the things you find!
Build a mini-den. Try and build a little den or bug house. Challenge yourself to make it waterproof (you could even test it at the end!)
Make a nature picture. Using natural things from the garden (always ask before you pick anything) create a picture or pattern and take a photo!
Identify wildlife. Use these great identification cards from the Woodland trust to see what is growing in your garden or local surroundings:
Have a go at the Sports Quiz (make sure you view in Slide Show mode and click on what you think is the correct answer!).
Once you’ve done that, come up with your own sports quiz – you could make a PowerPoint like this one or display it in a different way. Try to ask questions about lots of different sports – you’ll have to do some research!
Sport Challenge Cards
Print out Sport Challenge Cards below – cut them out and shuffle them. Place the pile upside down and turn over the first card – complete the activity. Once finished, turn over the next card and do that activity. Keep doing this until all the cards have been turned over.
You could create some of your own cards too!
Fitness Circuits Activity Cards
Set up your own circuit stations, using Fitness Circuits Activity Cards – spend 30 seconds at every station and have a quick break between each one. If you are feeling really fit, try doing the circuit more than once!
Sports day word search
Try making your own sports-themed word search for someone in your family, using the blank word search template below.
Design your own sports kit
You could use 'Design a Football Kit' below if you want a template or you could design your own sports kit for any sport on plain paper or straight into your book.
If you choose to do French this week, you do not have to do all of the activities listed below.
Introduction to 'Les Sports'.
Open Les Sports PowerPoint:
Take a look at the French Sports Word Mats – add any on to your list that you didn’t put down.
Click the play buttons in the PowerPoint to hear how to pronounce some of the sports in French.
Now - Let's Play!
Play Sport Connect Four!
Play Sports Board Game!
Quel est ton sport préféré? (What’s Your Favourite Sport?)
Ask each person your family to say a sentence expressing their favourite sport. Then, then add it to the Favourite Sport Tally Chart. Could you ask any friends or other relatives and add them to your tally too?
Use the Favourite Sport Tally Chart to compose a block graph of your class’s favourite sports, using Sport Graph sheet.
Answer Sports Graph Questions.
Mon Sport Préféré ...
Make an information sheet about your favourite sport – Mon Sport Préféré est… .
You can make this as easy or difficult as you wish! You could draw some equipment for your sport and label it in French. You could draw or stick in some of your favourite sports stars doing the sport and give some information about them – ‘Voici Andy Murray. Il a trente-deux ans…’. You could draw an outfit or court/stadium for your sport and label it in French.
