Key workers 100 Challenge

A reminder that our June challenge begins next week –

With the inspiration of Captain Tom, your challenge is to complete 100 miles (or more if you want a bigger challenge), to complete through running/jogging/walking/cycling etc. The aim is to do this challenge for a ‘Keyworker’ of your choice, and if you wish, to create a back sign like you would for the Race for Life. We will inform the people of the local community, so that you can get a wee cheer as you go, and you can cheer any Loirston pupils you see doing this challenge! Unfortunately, we are not permitted to create our own ‘Just Giving’ page, though you can donate to a charity of your choice if you wish.

Please keep us updated with your progress, and take some photos for the blog and Twitter -it would be great to collate some videos and pictures of pupils doing this challenge.

Good luck!

National School Sport Week – Youth Sport Trust

Youth Sport Trust are hosting a National School Sport Week from Saturday 20 June to Friday 26 June. The aim is “to challenge people to take on their families, friends and neighbours in virtual sporting challenges”.

By registering on their website, you are provided with free videos and activity challenges to participate in during the week. Although we are already having our school Virtual Sports Day (week) earlier in June, pupils are encouraged to participate in this event where well-being, inclusivity and togetherness are the focus of the event.

Stay safe and have fun!

Virtual Sports Events

Usually we would be having our 3 sports events this term, this year we will be running 2 from home. Hope you have fun with them!
Family Sports Day 
Sports Day would have been 9th June, so that week we will have a “Family Sports Day”, instead of the PE weekly tasks. You will receive 10 fun tasks via ILD (with the help of some wonderful volunteers), and it is up to each family whether they complete all 10 or pick and choose, and whether they wish to do it in one day, or spread it out over the course of the week.
Don’t worry about sending scores in, instead, we would like some photos of your Family Sports Day for the blog or Twitter please! Feel free to make your own medals etc for this day.
Keyworker Challenge
Well done to everyone who took part in the ‘Virtual Marathon Challenge’! As it was such a success, I have another challenge for you!

Virtual Marathon Challenge

I would like to set a school challenge…

Staff and pupils are being asked to complete a virtual marathon between now and the summer holidays. All you need to do is try to walk or run the 26.2 miles, and keep a wee tally so you know how much you have completed (you do not need to do it all at once!).

If you wish to have a medal at the end of your achievement, ukschoolrun.com have virtual marathon medals for £3.99, with an option for an extra £1 to be donated to the NHS.

 

Stay safe, and have fun!
