Physical Activity

The Youth Sport Trust

Many children and young people across the UK will be missing out on their usual sport clubs. We’re here to help all young people feel part of a club that helps them develop skills and learn something new. The Youth Sport Trust’s After School Sport Club is about much more than physical fitness. It will help children develop physical literacy and confidence to try lots of new sports, helping all children find a sport for them.

The After School Sport Club will be led by Athlete Mentors from different backgrounds, abilities and sports. The first session will take place on Thursday 12 November at 5pm, with the world’s number one female inline skater and ten times British Champion, Jenna Downing.

Every day at 5pm from 16 November until 18 December, children and young people can join in with the live broadcast for free on our YouTube channel. Join in the conversation on social using #YSTAfterSchool and tagging @YouthSportTrust across all social media channels. You might need items from around your home for some sessions, but we’ll give some ideas ahead of each club to adapt if you don’t have these items.

The different daily themes are below:

  • Adventure Monday – This might involve getting children to do floor, wall climbing and map reading all within their living room
  • Tuesday Play – Imaginative play utilising resources in the house to create games and activities to get active
  • Wild Wednesday – Some high tempo competitive activities involving personal challenges
  • Thinking Thursday – Introducing cognitive challenges for children through movement. Active noughts and crosses and introducing an element of competition – whether that be against themselves, the clock, their siblings or remotely with friends
  • Fun Friday – A chance for children to let loose and have some fun. Dancing and doing what makes them feel good.

Other resources

There are links to Joe Wicks' workouts for children, in the list below. 

Although the current lockdown doesn't affect schools, if there is a positive case of Covid-19 at school, then a bubble or the whole school may need to close. During these times it is important for young people to keep fit and active.

The Uttlesford School Sports Partnership (USSP) which we subscribe to with our Sport Premium funding, would like to provide you with some challenges and resources for you to try at home.

  • All young people should aim to be physically active for 60 minutes each day.
  • Print off these sheets and keep a log or how active you have been.
  • We would encourage you to do as many of these activities in your gardens, benefiting from the fresh air, as possible.
  • Please ensure you have enough room to do these activities and perform them in a safe manner.

Yoga at School

Michael Chissick from Yoga at School has created yoga video lessons that children (with Autism and without) can practise at home during the Coronavirus Lockdown.

Here is the link: https://bit.ly/2XS0EVV

The lessons are simply structured, easy to follow and to teach, as well as safe, highly engaging and great fun. Parents and staff do not need any yoga knowledge or experience to do this. Michael has been teaching yoga in SEN & Mainstream Schools for almost 25 years and has developed these methods over that time.

Although he created the videos for children who are on the Autism Spectrum, they are also ideal for neurotypical children from EYFS, Reception and Years 1 & 2.

The lessons consist of THREE short animated videos, which you can download from Michael's website at the link shown, and use when it best suits the children. So no Zoom, no streaming problems; no privacy worries.


You can stop, start, freeze, go back, fast forward, when you want…and revisit time after time, after time; thereby reinforcing the activities which, we know, with children on the spectrum, is key.

Children will be learning simple yoga postures, a sequence and a relaxation technique, and the whole family will be having fun at the same time.

Remember, you can access the videos at https://bit.ly/2XS0EVV
