Our Specialisms: Sports UpdatePosted on: 06/07/2020
Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures! During lockdown the Physical Education Department at Capital City Academy created new and innovative ways to keep our students active. We offered a range of activities that could be done at home via online learning which included fitness sessions from a range of top fitness providers. These sessions ranged from personal challenges, pilates, yoga, bootcamps, circuit training and Track Academy live sessions. These are still available to do.
Daily Joe Wicks sessions were encouraged and part of the daily routine for those pupils in school.
We linked with National Governing bodies to provide a wide range of activities suitable for individuals or to do as a family, e.g. Youth Sports Trust, Cricket Chance to Shine, FA Challenges and dance challenges. These were regularly sent out via social media and uploaded to the online classrooms.
We wanted to help our students to use physical activity to make their lives better. Every student has their own personal log-on and can record all their physical activity. This has been a great way of sending messages of encouragement and support to students. If you haven’t done so already, log on and be active. Parents: you have been emailed your child’s personal details. Heads of Year also have this information.
Capital City Academy School Sports Partnership
We have continued to support our Partnership schools throughout this time, offering resources, professional training and curriculum support.
Capital students took part in the London Youth Games Virtual Challenge
Three challenges were released each week via social media and within online learning. Participants had until Friday to upload their results. Prizes were offered each week for the Most Valuable Player. Capital City Academy were one of only 7 schools in Brent that took part.National School Sports week at home
What a week it was! From nutty squirrels and wacky races to plank challenges and keepy-uppys, National School Sports Week at Home, supercharged by Sky Sports, had it all this year. With social distancing in place and limited students back in school, National School Sports Week at Home required an innovative take on the usual celebration of PE and school sport. Family activities and virtual challenges became the norm for the week. We loved watching videos on social media showing how people had tackled the challenge.
Capital City Academy Girls
CCA girls are taking part in Youth Sports Trust research for the This Girl Can campaign and they have been asked to be the face of the campaign for this year.
