#ThisIsPE – Supporting parents to teach PE at home

If you're looking for ways to educate and entertain the kids during lockdown, we've got something for you!

Yorkshire Sport Foundation have brought together teachers from across the country to provide activities and games you can replicate at home, using things you can find around the house. They have fun at the heart of them all, so not only will it keep the kids entertained, but it will continue their development in crucial areas such as coordination, balance and building strength.
It's endorsed by the Government Department for Education, and is supported by leading national organisations, the Association for Physical Education, and the Youth Sport Trust.

Each video lasts around two minutes, and will introduce an activity, with tips for how to progress it depending on the age and development of your child. Some of the videos have ways you can put what children have learnt into a game, plus ways of how to make that game easier or harder.

You may think that PE is all about star jumps, cross country runs in the cold, or the school football team. Physical education is actually about providing your child with the fundamental skills they need as they develop throughout primary school. And it's fun!

Families across the country have been getting involved in #ThisIsPE in the last few weeks, so why don't you?

Check out all the videos here, or take a look on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for #ThisIsPE.

CALLING ALL TEACHERS AND COACHES - Yorkshire Sport would like your help in producing video clips for a public campaign. Please see the attached document for all the information you need to submit a video and be part of the campaign.
