Virtual PE lessons, Chelsea Football Club's 'Check-In with Chelsea and our new Strava Club to allow parents, pupils and staff to compete!
Week 2 of our online PE lessons has seen the girls enjoy Yoga, Circuit Training, High School Musical HIIT workout, juggling, sock, netball and football challenges as well as den making in Forest School. We continue to be impressed with the engagement and enthusiasm of the majority of girls. Thank you to those who uploaded their results of last week’s exercise challenge but it would have been great to see what more of you have been up to!
Well done to Form 6M & 7L who had the highest number of participants and considering the aim was 5km, well done to Katie W who ran 27.34km in total, Theia & Georgie TA who cycled 25km in total and Annabel C who walked 23km in total. Overall 57.7% of you cycled, 26.9% walked and 15.4% ran.
This week’s challenge should be very easy for those that did last week’s challenge but hopefully more manageable for others who have not yet recorded their activity. You have to try and achieve the bronze level which is 5km, silver level which is 10km or the gold level which is 15km, walking, running or cycling. Girls should submit their results on the department google form and will then be emailed with a virtual medal for completing the relevant level.
The Sports Department have decided to set up a Strava Club which will track your exercise and post it onto the Manor House School Strava page so that pupils, staff and parents can compete with each other and see how active we are as a community.
There are two clubs- Manor House School Cycling Club and Manor House School Running Club. Participants should download Strava from the App Store, select Clubs near the top right hand side, search Manor House and join! You will need to be approved as a member.
***Top tip – start tracking only when you have begun your workout to avoid revealing your home location***
Chelsea Football Club
We are delighted to share with your our first, exciting initiative for this lockdown period; ‘Check-In with Chelsea’. Designed to be used by children who are learning remotely, as well as thosepupils who are at school; each day we will be releasing short tasks and challenges for pupils to complete, providing a ‘check-in’ point for pupils,reminding them of the importance of checking in, staying focused, and keeping active. Schools and pupils will be able to join in via our own virtual classrooms, with the challenges themed around English, Maths, PSHE, STEM, and physical activity.
Each day will contain a small physical activity diary, ensuring the importance of staying active is recognised each day. In addition, simple, optional challenges for all of the family to complete at weekends will be added each week, aiming to engage the whole family in fun activities to complete together.
Pupils and schools will be encouraged to upload their work and progress, with rewards and incentives on offer for completing challenges.
