Virtual Games at the Hub

Primary Six Families,

I hope that all of you have been enjoying the health week activities in the beautiful sunshine we have been enjoying this week! Following health week we have been invited to join in the annual Games and the Hub Event. This is a celebration of the Active Schools Programme and is open to primary six pupils across the city. This year because we are not able to meet up in person the event will happen virtually.

The event will run in three section, the opening ceremony, the sports events and a quiz at 2 P.M. to end the day. To participate in the opening ceremony and the sports events you will need to send a photo or video of yourself completing the activity and either email it to or upload them to Teams. It would be great if you could include a short comment on what you were doing or what skills you were using. I will then be able to tweet them in throughout the day. If you do not wish the photo to be tweeted please make that clear when sending it in.

The theme for the opening ceremony is ‘Journey Through Lockdown’. This could be examples of things that you have learnt, skills you have been developing, food you have been cooking etc.

There will be a range of sports challenges, most of which you will not need sports equipment to complete. Full details of the sports will be published via the link below by 5 P.M. today. Each event will take a maximum of half an hour.

List of activities

The quiz will be on and can be accessed through a code shared on the website and twitter. I will re-post them on the blog and Teams too.

Please share your photos, videos and comments by Wednesday.

The grid next week will be shorter to reflect the extra time which will be taken to complete these activities.

Hope to hear from you all soon!

All the best!

Mr McPheely
