MISSING YOUR AFTER-SCHOOL PE?
The Youth Sports Trust have re-launched their online After School Sport Club to help kids stay active and to fill the void of school and community sport in childrens' lives.
The charity will team up with 11 National Governing Bodies (NGB) of Sport including British Judo and England Netball so children can enjoy being led through a range of fun, exciting and challenging invasion games, dance, gymnastics and other sports which will help them to stay fit and healthy while also supporting their broader personal development.
Running on a Tuesday and a Thursday, the ‘club’ sessions will be led by YST Athlete Mentors with NGB guest athletes from different backgrounds, abilities and sports including Paralympian Kate Grey. The first After School Sport Club of the New Year will start on Tuesday 12 January at 5pm and last for 30 minutes. It will then run at the same time every Tuesday and Thursday until March.
For more information, please visit www.youthsporttrust.org/AfterSchoolSportClub
....or you could keep up your Daily Mile challenges....
The Daily Mile at Home is an easy and fun way to keep fit and maintain good health and wellbeing for all the family.

Each week there will be a different sport focus, the Tuesday will introduce the basic theme and the Thursday will involve a sport specific session.

Living Streets and the Year Round Walk to School Challenge
You might enjoy using some of the resources provided in the the Walking from Home booklet produced by Living Streets. Although we aren't currently travel tracking our journeys, the booklet is designed to encourage families to be active, linking walks with important themes. There is always an indoor suggestion for those unable to get out.
They have produced the perfect activity booklet for families to support their children in learning about important themes while staying active. Each resource sheet includes three activities:
- one for the little ones
- one for older children
- one special indoor activity
