Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Fitness Challenges

 

Let’s get Moving! Please have a look at the suggestions below to make sure that you are looking after your fitness and wellbeing whilst being off school. Have fun with it!

 

There is a link below for 'The Body Coach' who will be doing a live PE fitness session for children and their parents every day at 9am whilst schools are closed. It would be great to know that all of Berkswich CE were doing this together each day!

Set yourself daily goals to reach and beat...

 

  • Take this Disney sports quiz and see which activity it suggests for you! https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/activities/disney-sports-quiz 
  • 10 Minute Shake-up! Change4Life and Disney have teamed up to bring you new Shake Up games inspired by Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 and Incredibles 2, and Disney's The Lion King and Frozen. These 10-minute bursts of fun will really get you moving and count towards the 60 active minutes needed every day! https://www.nhs.uk/10-minute-shake-up/shake-ups 
  • Have a tennis racket at home? Why not rehearse some of the games that you usually play with Mr Proud – you could even teach a family member?

  • Become a super mover at www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers - active learning to the max!
  • Choreograph a dance to your favourite song! This is a great way to get your heart pumping and allows you to be creative. If you’re in dance club, you could teach a family member the routine!

  • Musical bumps or statues. The perfect opportunity to revive these favourite party games.
  • Fun circuit training. Draw pictures of different activities and place them around the room – or all over the house. Visit each picture and do the activity – e.g. hop on one leg 10 times, do 10 star jumps, 10 squats, 2 roly-polies, etc.
  • Dodge ball or catch in the garden
  • Have your own family Sports Day! Egg and spoon at the ready…
  • Design your own obstacle course.
  • Hula Hooping!
  • Jump rope – see if you can make your own rhymes to go with it!

  • Let your teacher know about any new ideas so that she can add them to this page.
  • Move Crew - This is a fun programme developed with the expertise of teachers, physical activity specialists, elite athletes, children and coaches. Get active with the fun ideas on this website! https://ukactivekids.com/movecrew/
