Devon Summer School Virtual Games
Active Devon and the School Games Organisers are hosting the Devon Summer School Games with a twist!
All competitions are virtual, and you can enter as many of them as you like. The competitions are suitable to do at home, in your backyard or garden or at school. They give you the chance to virtually team up with your classmates, represent your school and compete against other children from across Devon!
The #DevonVirtualGames will run from the 18th May 2020 – 13th July 2020 with six different events for you to enter. Individuals will be able to submit their entries via an online link. The last additional event will be a set of family-based challenges which will run throughout the summer holidays. Every Monday at 10am throughout June we will post a new competition for you to get involved in. Each competition will be open for a limited amount of time.
There will be medals, certificates, and prize categories for each event. All entries will also be included into a prize draw for the chance to win some great prizes, plus the school with the highest percentage of their pupils taking part will also win a prize, so make sure you tell your friends from school to get involved too!

East Devon School Games and PE
Below are some ideas of physical activities you can do at home with your family.
Blue Peter 2020 Sport Badge
Blue Peter are giving you the chance to earn your 2020 Sport Badge. All you have to do is try a new sport or physical activity, such as dancing using an online dance tutorial, or learning a new skill such as skipping. The only rules are that it has to be physical, and it must be something you haven't done before. Once you have completed the activity for 10 minutes over 5 days, get someone to take a photo of you, or draw a picture of yourself doing the activity, fill in the application form and send it off to Blue Peter.
