The Sheffield Schools Get Active Group (including School Games Organisers, SSP's and the PESOL Team) are excited to bring you the Sheffield Virtual School Games 2020 which will take place 22nd-26th June 2020 during National School Sport Week.
Due to the current situation around the Corona Virus, many school competitions, events and sports days have been cancelled. This competition has been created to enable pupils across Sheffield to compete in simple generic sport skills against pupils from other schools whether they are attending school, or distance learning is taking place.
The competition consists of 8 simple skills that can be completed at school or at home:
Speed Bounce, Target Throw, Keepie Uppies, Coordination Station, Clap Catch, Plank For Points, Healthy Selfie & the Creative Challenge. Fantastic Sports Leaders from Forge Valley School, Meadowhead and Westfield have created instruction videos for each of the activities to go alongside the activity cards which can be accessed on the site or via the QR codes on the activity cards.
All you/ parents/ pupils have to do is follow the activity cards or videos (see below), complete the challenge and record your scores on the scoresheet. Once you have completed all of the challenges, follow the link (below) and submit your results to our online form and you will collate points for your school/ year group or even your class! We will send out information after the event on your individual school to show which year groups engaged the most, which teams and even which pupils.
The competition will be split into the following categories: FS2-Y2, Y3-Y4, Y5-6, Y7-Y8, Y9-Y10.
Pupils will be able to submit their scores from 9am Monday 22nd June until 5pm Thursday 25th June with the results being announced throughout Friday 26th June!
