Cosmic Kids Yoga

We have seen that lots of and lots of you have been taking part in the Joe Wicks PE lessons each morning, even Mr Horton and Mr Rowlands have been having a go!

If you would like to have a go at something different why not try some Yoga?

Below is a link to Cosmic Yoga, a YouTube page dedicated to yoga for children, each session is built around a different game, story or movie that the children will recognise.

As well as this I have also attached a link to Yoga with Adriene, she has some amazing beginner yoga sessions and 30 day introduction videos, here you will also find videos especially for children.


Have fun staying active at home, we look forward to hearing and seeing how you get on.

Stay safe.

Good morning, I hope that by now everybody is getting into some sort of routine within the current situation that we are all living in.

Today we are looking at The National Trusts ’50 things to do before you’re 11&3/4′.  

As we know most of these activities are designed to be completed outside of the house, however below I have picked out a few that you can do from the comfort of your own home.

FA Super Kicks

Each day The FA via their Twitter feed @FA are posting football themed challenges for children to have a go at whilst they are home.

The skills range from throwing and catching through to footwork and ball control. If your anything like me (Mr Chaplen) your house will be littered with what feels like the contents of the St Matthew’s PE cupboard, however the skills can be completed with a football, or any type of ball or make shift ball you have around the house.

You can also find the link each day to these skills activities via the @ActiveStMatts Twitter feed.

Have fun trying out these skills, and as always we would love to see photos and videos of everyone having a go!

Calling All Cricketers

All Stars Cricket & Fit 4 Cricket 

We hope you have had a good weekend, each day we will be continuing to share new websites you can use in order to keep accessing sports and skill based activities that you can use at home.

Todays post is taking us into the cricketing world.

Cricket is one of the most popular sport at St Matthew’s, every lunch time you will find large groups of children all playing together on the playground. A mixture of ages all working together, learning from one another and progressing their skills.

The links below will take you to the English Cricket Board website where you will find lots of short videos put together for children to learn and practise specific skills relevant to not only cricket, but many sports.

Some of the videos will use specific equipment, but most of these can be substituted by things you can find around the house.

You will also find tips from England cricketers on how to keep yourself busy during our time at home!

10 Minute Shake Up games

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your all keeping safe and making the best of the situation we are all finding ourselves  in at the moment.

Todays website we would love you to take a look at is the NHS’s Change4Life campaign.

Change4Life is something that lots of us will have heard of, however may not have taken the time to check out their website before.

If you head over to you will find lots of 10 minute shake up activities to play in the house, as well healthy cooking recipes that children can either do alone or with an adult.

The information you will find on this website can be doubled up as a science or wellbeing activity for you to take part in at home, and maybe have a go at planning out some healthy lunch box ideas for when we are back at school!
