The Tyrrells School

Aspire, Care, Learn for Life



As we move into Week 7 of PE with Joe Wicks on YouTube, we're getting stronger and fitter by the week! Did you improve when you did the monthly challenge last week? 

Send us a picture of you doing PE with Joe on Seesaw, we'd love to see them!


The Chelmsford School Sport Partnership have given us some great ideas for you to try at home this week:

Family Games 
Sock wars - KS1 
Activity one 

Attack vs defence 
The defender tucks a sock into the waist band of their shorts or trousers. The attacker is aiming to grab the sock while the defender is trying to avoid that from happening. Before you begin, clear a safe playing space making sure it is free from obstructions, hazardous objects and sharp corners. When defending use quick changes of direction to dodge attacks. When attacking encourage children to keep their eye on the target and to use explosive lunging movements to grab the sock. When children are becoming more confident move on to our second activity, one on one. 
Activity two – 
One on one 
In this game players both players place two socks into their waistband, one on each hip. The 
 aim is to be the first person to remove both of your opponents’ socks. Children will now need to think about protecting their own socks at the same time as attacking to grab their opponents. To make the challenge easier or harder vary the number or length of socks, only allow one hand to be used or even restrict the movement of one player perhaps make them play from their knees.

Active Essex have a packed timetable of free weekly live workouts and fitness activities. They are also uploaded to their YouTube channel so you can try them at your leisure. See the link below.
