Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.
It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from this week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:

YOUTH SPORT TRUST RESOURCES
Ready Set Ride resources
The Youth Sport Trust have been commissioned by British Cycling and HSBC UK to design resources to help children to learn to ride. Using an activity pack, online video resources and app, parents, teachers and carers are supported to teach children the essential skills needed to ride a bike while having fun playing together.

Primary & Secondary Resources
Play Format videos
Our ‘Play Formats’ have been designed to encourage more active play and support children to engage informally in activity before accessing more formal sport specific variations.

Personal Challenge videos
It is the mission of the School Games to provide ‘more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their Personal Best’. This includes competing against oneself and others to improve personal performances with a focus on the process rather than the outcome (on the learning and values development of the young person rather than just the result). For some inspiration, watch some personal challenges created by young people, have a go yourself, or create your own.

Inclusion 2020 activities
Taken from our 'Inclusion 2020' project which has seen 50 primary, secondary and special schools across England organise inclusive countrywide 'Learning and Discovery' sport festivals. At the events, 3,000 pupils of all abilities have been experiencing a variety of Para sports and get the opportunity to compete. In this document (page 11 onwards) there's a wide range of inclusive formats to utilise.
DAN THE SKIPPING MAN
With school closures having an impact on academic study and physical activity for your children I wanted to forward this. Feel free to upload a link to any school portal or share with your schools!
Our aim is to offer your school some access to the simple ideas we deliver and allow them to stay active. We plan to release more on www.youtube.com/dantheskippingman very soon also.
Dan the Skipping Man® works across schools to boost physical activity, develop resilience, perseverance and creativity for all. We normally offer children in schools a simple form of creative fitness to get themselves active and enjoying themselves in a form of fitness that is simple to access, easy to do and can be done indoors or outside. A number of links are below but we have 60+ videos on our Youtube channel www.youtube.com/dantheskippingman and have a number of playlists broken down into series, here is a sample,

Dan the Skipping Man® trials are a few simple trial ideas to build on to give people ways of testing themselves.
All people need to follow our videos is a skipping rope and some space (back yard, conservatory etc) … if people don’t have a rope available we have them available to buy on our website in a variety of sizes (Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, Adult) www.dantheskippingman.com/shop
This is just a quick reminder that the real play at home access will be sent to ALL existing real PE schools and any school who has already registered today. They will receive an email later to give them their parental login and supporting tools (including a suggested timetable for EYFS/KS1 and KS2) to send home for parents to directly access Jasmine.
Any schools or groups or families can still register for access by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
