Hello and welcome to our 'PE at Home' page.
Here you will find a range of different activities and challenges for you to have a go at home in the garden or indoors. You'll find all sorts including PE challenges, mini challenges and Joe Wicks resource sheets. Don't forget Joe Wicks is offering free physical activity workout videos on his Youtube Channel Monday - Friday at 9am!
NEW: Have a go at the 2 mini challenges below. Can you turn them into a game or competition between you and other people in your household? Think about rules you can put on the game, and different ways that points could be awarded.

PE Challenge - Design an exercise circuit
Design an exercise circuit for your household. Think of a number of different exercises and activities you would like to include and set them out in a big space. Below is an example of a circuit you could use or you can come up with your own. Don't forget to warm-up and stretch first.
1. Tennis ball catch (throw a tennis ball or another sensible object up and catch it without it dropping on the floor).
2. Jogging on the spot.
3. Motivation station (give motivation and praise to the rest of your household who are exercising).
4. Star jumps.
5. Hopping/balancing on one leg.
Think about how long you will stay at each station before moving to the next one (perhaps 1 minute).
Can you complete a second lap of the circuit thinking about how you can make sure yourself and others are being suitably challenged? This might involve making some of the activities different for others. Perhaps you could catch an object with one hand, or set yourself goals and targets at each of the stations, such as performing 30 star jumps within the time allocation.
This challenge can be done several times with different activities. To finish, can you think about and research which muscles you have worked particularly hard today?
