Staying active at home
Aim to be active for an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week
Keep an activity diary for 7 days and record how you feel after each activity
Actively commute to school where you can e.g. walk, cycle, scooter
Create an active game and play it with your family and/or a friend – there are lots of great ideas in the link below
Encourage a friend and/or family member to be active
Children and Young People (5 to 18 years)
• Children and young people should engage in moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity for an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week. This can include all forms of activity such as physical education, active travel, after-school activities, play and sports.
• Children and young people should engage in a variety of types and intensities of physical activity across the week to develop movement skills, muscular fitness, and bone strength.
• Children and young people should aim to minimise the amount of time spent being sedentary, and when physically possible should break up long periods of not moving with at least light physical activity.
Children and their families could also be encouraged to create super small sided games (invasion, net & wall, strike & field, target or tag) that could be played at home.
