A Parkes teacher is one of the presenters on a new digital resource to help keep children active while learning from home.
Adam Parker of Parkes High School will be seen on the GetActive@Home initiative of the NSW Education Department providing physical activity and exercises to keep primary school students active while participating in remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new online resource aligns with the NSW curriculum and will make it easier for teachers and parents to keep students physically active.
Video demonstrations provide clear instructions showing children how to complete a range of movement activities in a safe and fun way. The videos are split into two categories aimed at Kindergarten to Year 2 students and Year 3 to Year 6 students.
Other resources include activity logbooks, tracking cards and digital certificates to get students motivated to move.
Special guest appearances from well-known sports stars are set to encourage students to tune in to new episodes each week.
The first two episodes of GetActive@ Home were available from Wednesday this week on the Education department’s website with new episodes released weekly over the next five weeks.
