PE for homework?

A new initiative in the Republic of Ireland called Super Troopers aims to increase fitness levels in the more than 60,000 children taking part by giving them PE activities for homework.

Each child is given a physical activity homework planner outlining short-burst exercises to do at home with their parents. They then bring the planner into school for their teacher to check.

If you’d like to try this idea in your school, why not borrow some of the games from 1oo+ Fun Ideas for Teaching PE Games?
