All lessons can be viewed via YouTube channels for Loughborough College and the Telegraph. Earlier lessons include a focus on athletics on day one, gymnastics on day two, fitness on day three, multi-skills on day four, and an Olympic final on day five.
Juggling, soccer and throwing techniques are included in today’s free online sports lessons in partnership with The Telegraph’s Keep Kids Active campaign.
After three days of athletics, gymnastics and fitness, the teachers at Loughborough College have now presented various tips for hand-eye coordination. For those without tennis balls, teachers recommend rolling up a pair of socks or even asking a parent for a satsuma or orange from the fruit bowl.
The courses, facilitated by college-educated English footballers Steph Houghton and Ben Chilwell, ensure rigorous training in the coming days and cover a wide range of sporting disciplines.
The videos go live before 9am each morning but remain available throughout the day to ensure students can combine their hour-long activity with the other classes already scheduled by their schools.
All abilities and fitness levels are catered for, with an easier option explained for the more difficult tasks. Unlike other virtual workouts, the college offers targeted classes for 10- to 14-year-olds that are guaranteed to meet three of the four goals of the national physical education curriculum. Today’s lesson is one of three lessons a week that do not require equipment.
To ensure the youngsters complete their hour-long work of recommended daily exercise, students are then encouraged to practice some of their long jump and triple jump techniques for an additional half hour after class is complete.
Loughborough set up its first classes in a lounge-style room to show how easy it is to do the exercises at home. The goal is to surpass the offering of the popular Joe Wicks YouTube tutorials due to the level of expertise in line with the curriculum.
Loughborough College – whose alumni also include Ellie Simmonds, the five-time Paralympic swimming champion, and Carl Froch, the four-time world boxing champion – has pledged to teach in the first week and set Ashmole Academy in north London to host January 25. The baton is then passed across the country for classes to be streamed for free. Jo Maher, principal and chief executive at Loughborough College, says her staff can ensure children meet at least three out of four elements of the physical education curriculum. The fourth – competitive sport – is banned under England’s lockdown rules.
