Year 6 Virtual Sports Day 2021

Introduction

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, we are unable to meet you before the end of term this year, but we didn’t want you to miss out on being introduced to our PE Department. So, instead of a physical event, we are delighted to welcome you to our ‘Virtual Sports Day’.

8 Challenges, 4 weeks, lots of chances to get involved.

WHO WILL WIN?

This is different to a normal Sports Day as it can be done with very little space and no sports equipment! Our Virtual Sports Day aims to give you a taste of what a Whalley Range Sports Day looks like, so check out the introduction video below first before you try our 8 challenges:

Star Jumps (Challenge 1)

Toilet Roll Kick Ups (Challenge 4)

Throw and Catch (Challenge 8)

The final challenge is throwing and catching! Similarly to Challenge 5, not everyone will have access to a ball, so, we're going to fold up a pair of socks again. This time you are throwing and catching the socks as many times as you can in 1 minute. However, for it to count each throw must go above your head.

Check out Mrs O'Brien having a practice, look how high she's throwing the socks up:
