Daily Boost At Home
The great thing about the Daily Boost is that it can be done at home with the whole family as well as during the school day!
It is a great way to improve and maintain your health and wellbeing by taking part and keeping track of the number of minutes you spend being active while you are not doing PE or Daily Boosts at school.
The Daily Boost aims to encourage children and young people to do 15 minutes of organised activity and is a great way to break up the day. One 'Mini Boost' is 5 minutes of any structured activity; 3 x 5 'Mini Boosts' per day is equal to 1 Daily Boost. Or you can still do your 15 minutes of structured activity to achieve a Daily Boost per day
You can use a scorecard* provided by your Daily Boost registered school to track your progress or use our Virtual app to keep track of your activity.
*If you have not received the link to the challenges or the downloadable scorecard please get in touch with email@example.com and we will email them out to you.
Remember, you can choose to do ANY activity at ANY time of the day -and perhaps even print off a scorecard to record your minutes every time you are active.
Our Partners have created a video to explain the Bronze, Silver and Gold Challenges to keep you busy during the next 4 weeks, however you can do ANY activity that you enjoy to achieve your boost minutes.
Your School should have provided the link to the video, if you have not recieved this please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
Zoom has created a variety of Activity sheets for you to use!
We have provided a template for a cube, cut this out and attach to card to make this stronger and then you could attach/write on activities of your choice and then throw like a dice to create your unique " Mini Boost "session!
The same can be done with the activity sheet and perhaps you could use it in a bingo style. Write out your own moves/exercises and get someone to shout out numbers on the sheet and this is another 'Mini Boost' creation.
Logging your activity!
You can record your activity via the Scorecard* or via the Virtual Together app.
The Virtual Together app provides an easy, on-the-go method to log your Daily Boost activity!
Using the app means you can keep a note of what activity you or your group does, then log it via the app at a time that suits you.
Please submit your minutes in the App in multiples of 5 minutes (IE: 5 minutes = a Mini Boost and 15 minutes = a Daily Boost).
See the step-by-step guide for information on registering with the app, joining the Daily Boost Challenges, and logging your activity.
*Scorecard provided by your school or email email@example.com to access one.
During the Summer of 2020 we ran the Daily Boost Summer Challenge, which offered a great opportunity for children to take part in some FUN activities during the school holidays. They were able to complete our fun interactive scorecard on a weekly basis and achieve each of the Daily Boost milestones of 250, 500, 750, 1000 minutes of activity.
Take a look at the sub-pages below for ideas on how you can complete your Daily Boosts at Home!
