Panathlon’s virtual programme has exploded in popularity since the start of the 2020/21 school year – and we want to keep the momentum going over the half-term break.
The virtual programme (which empowers schools to run their own Panathlon competitions safely on-site whilst our external competitions are curtailed by Covid-19) has been widely adopted by schools since the middle of September and has been a great success so far.
With the half term holiday approaching (and some areas heading into stricter lockdowns), we’re determined to maintain this progress, so we’ve come up with activities that young people can do at home. This will ensure they remain active and return to school in the first week of November in prime form to resume our virtual competitions.
We have set students multi-skills challenges to do in their homes and gardens using everyday household items such as jam jars, rolled-up socks, tin cans, buckets and plant pots.
Here are a couple of examples, then find out below how to get involved:
You can download full guides to these at-home challenges, including video examples of each activity and scorecards. Just click the relevant link below (choosing Word doc or PDF format):
After you’ve completed the challenges, students can fill in their scorecard and email it to email@example.com to receive a certificate.
Participants can let us know how well they’ve done via social media by using the hashtags #PanathlonIndoorGames or #PanathlonGardenGames

Good luck everyone!
