Since schools were forced to partially close in March, Hampshire School Games Organisers (SGOs) have been sending out daily challenges for pupils to take part in - #HSGDailychallenges.
Hook Infant School, are assisting to implement the Chief Medical Officers guidelines; all children should be physically active for 60 minutes each day, 30 minutes of which is supported by schools. We are continuing to reach out to all schools to share and promote the importance of being physically active.
For MAY the Hampshire School Games Organiser (SGO) network are changing it a little bit and we are launching 'School Games Mark May'. A four week programme of daily challenges linked to the sports played at the annual Hampshire School Games, which unfortunately has been cancelled this year.
Each week, daily challenges from two sports will be released. From example, Football - Monday/Tuesday and Netball Wednesday/Thursday. With Friday a day for pupils to try beat their previous score in the week. The challenges are slightly different for KS1 and KS2.
Challenges will be uploaded to the school website each week. There will also be record sheets for you to take note of your child’s score for the week. You do not need to print, you can edit the sheets and email them back to the school office or to the email address at the bottom of the score sheet, using the subject line ‘Games mark’. Scores need to be emailed by Saturday to allow me time to forward them to the Hampshire SGO and allow Hook Infant school to compete with other schools in Hampshire.
There is also a separate Dance Challenge. Pupils do not have to do the Dance Challenge but it provides opportunities for those who love to dance/move and be creative, I know there are a few budding dancers in my class!
Challenges will be uploaded weekly
Parents can email me their child's score or return the score to the email on the bottom of record sheet. This can be done daily or at the end of the week, by Saturday.
I will then email out scores on Wednesday for previous week
The School Games Mark May competition is not between individual students. The competition is between schools and SGO areas only, based on participation rates.
Tutorial videos on how pupils should do each challenge, will be found on our facebook/twitter pages - @HampshireSGO daily at 8am.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Good luck and Get active!
