Welcome to the first ever Cornwall Virtual School Games! #CornwallVSG2020 sponsored by the University of Exeter. 

There will be a week of sports based physical activity challenges young people can get involved in. The challenges are suitable for primary and secondary aged children and have ideas for adaptations to suit all abilities, making them inclusive for all.

We at, Richard Lander School, are delighted to be taking part in the Cornwall Virtual School Games and hope to win lots of virtual bronze, silver and gold medals, but most of all, we hope that as many of you as possible will give these challenges a go! You don't need specialist equipment, measurements are taken with your hands, obstacles are created from household objects..

The challenges will be released during the week of the 8th June so people can register and get practising, and include:

• Monday 22nd – Athletics

• Tuesday 23rd – Bowls/Boccia

• Wednesday 24th – Gymnastics

• Thursday 25th – Ball Sports

• Friday 26th - Tennis

As well as the above, there will also be a separate task running throughout the whole week called ‘Making up the Miles’. This will involve walking, running, cycling, skating or scooting to collect as many miles in distance as you can.

How do participants score points?

Young people can score points by completing activities which combine together to make a total for their year group – the more you complete, the more points you will get for RLS so please get stuck in to as many of the challenges as you want!

As well as scoring points through completing the activities, bonus points can be achieved... 

• 1 point for a photo of you completing a challenge

• 1 point for every family member and year group teacher who tries the challenge in the photo

• 1 point for completing it in fancy dress

• 1 point for posting a video telling us how you have engaged with one of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing: Take Notice, Be Active, Give, Connect & Keep Learning.

Send your pictures, videos and stories to any of the PE teachers or upload them here to evidence this. Please remember to include your name, year group and school name so CSG know who to give the extra points to!
