School Games AT HOME VIRTUAL Challenge (PE)

 collection of ongoing challenges linked to the School Games are being developed by the Birmingham School Games Organisers (SGO) and Sport Birmingham. You will be able to find these challenges on the Birmingham’s Personal Challenge portal (www.sgochallenge.com

The School Games is a National Initiative open to any young person. It forms part of the legacy work after the London 2012 Olympics and is an opportunity for young people to play, compete, and represent their school in a wide range of sports and activities.

Anyone can have a go at a challenge, but you must be between 4-16 year’s old to submit results and attend a Birmingham Educational Institution. We strongly encourage parents/carers to get involved in supporting their child with their challenges too.

Here’s some tips to get you started;

  • Every child can submit multiple results per challenge (depending on the challenge) so why not try and beat you own personal best?
  • There will be prizes for individuals who finish in the top 5 for each challenge. Once a challenge has been completed, and if you are in the top 5 you will receive a virtual School Games Value Badge that was assigned for that challenge. Once school has resumed, and it is safe to do so, your SGO can award a real badge.
  • You can find out more about your SGO hub site, Sport Birmingham and the School Games by clicking on any of School logos at the bottom of the SGO Challenge page. You will need to register to find out who your SGO is if you don’t know already.

At one end and the sides use some books, cereal boxes or something similar to make a barrier and use a book or dvd case as a bat.

Para-Sport: Table Kurling

1. For this activity you will require a smooth table (check with an adult that it is okay to use this), five jar lids, and some pens and paper.
2. You will do this activity seated from one end (short side) of the table.
3. Write the numbers 1, 2, 5 and 10 each on a separate piece of paper, and line these up along one of the longest sides of the table with 1 being closest to the end you are seated at and 10 being at the furthest end.
4. From your seated position, push the first jar lid (smooth side down) along the table. The aim is to get your jar lid to stop in line with the number 10, but it is great if you are able to get it to stop in line with any of the numbers.
5. Now push each of the remaining four jar lids across the table from your seated position, one at a time, aiming to get them to stop in line with the number 10.
6. You can push the jar lids with your hand(s) or with a pusher such as a wooden spoon, and you may wish to use a ramp such as a chopping board (see STEP adaptations below).
7. Once you have pushed all five jar lids, it’s time to count up your score for your first attempt. To do this you will need to work out which number (1, 2, 5 or 10) each of the jar lids sits in line with. Then add each of the numbers together to find your score.
8. You can submit up to three scores for this activity, so have at least another two goes at pushing five jar lids across the table. See if you can beat your previous score.
9. If you are going to put the jar lids back on to jars once you finish this activity, it is important that you remember to give them a bit of a clean first.

 Para-Sport: 'Pasta Blasta'

1. You will need 6 sheets of paper with numbers 1-6 written on the sheets. then spread them out in a fan shape. Put numbers  4, 5, 6 furthest away, then numbers 3 and 2 underneath and finally number 1.
2. Put a few handfuls of pasta or rice in 3 sandwich bags to use as bean bags and seal or use bean bags if you have them.
3. Mark out 3 steps from the number 1 sheet and put a chair down and sit on the chair or if it's more comfortable sit on the floor.
4. You have 5 attempts/beanbags to score points.
5. Add your points together (using the numbers on the sheets) and submit your results.
6. Remember to ensure each piece of paper is a beanbags length away from the other numbers and if any part of your beanbag lands on a piece of paper that still counts.
