National Sports Week

National Sports Week

National Sports Week is a yearly event which takes place in June. At school we normally celebrate this with Sports Day, Inter house events and other sporting themed activities in class.

This year, the Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which will aim to unite the country - families, schools, sport and businesses - in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation.

At Bishop Lonsdale we are going to focus on a different sport every day and try and do as much physical activity as possible. Have a look at the ideas and links below.

Remember to take photographs and send them to or upload them to Twitter using the hashtag #StayHomeStayActive. Tag @DCCTSuperSchool

Here are some netball activities that your child can do indoors if it is raining or just for fun! I really like the painting stones idea.
