Dan the Skipping Man
Dan the Skipping Man® works across schools to boost physical activity, develop resilience, perseverance and creativity for all. We normally offer children in schools a simple form of creative fitness to get themselves active and enjoying themselves in a form of fitness that is simple to access, easy to do and can be done indoors or outside. A number of links are below but we have 60+ videos on our Youtube channel www.youtube.com/dantheskippingman and have a number of playlists broken down into series, here is a sample,
1) Dan the Skipping Man® #ICANSKIP – Starter skipper – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDsXDaeQfmG_X-h27EbQGxKG3YDFbjVGD

2) Dan the Skipping Man® #Skip5 – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDsXDaeQfmG9oiU_43VK-od1C5u_QGbBe

Ready Set Ride resources
The Youth Sport Trust have been commissioned by British Cycling and HSBC UK to design resources to help children to learn to ride. Using an activity pack, online video resources and app, parents, teachers and carers are supported to teach children the essential skills needed to ride a bike while having fun playing together.

Primary & Secondary Resources
Play Format videos
Our ‘Play Formats’ have been designed to encourage more active play and support children to engage informally in activity before accessing more formal sport specific variations.
Personal Challenge videos
It is the mission of the School Games to provide ‘more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their Personal Best’. This includes competing against oneself and others to improve personal performance with a focus on the process rather than the outcome (on the learning and values development of the young person rather than just the result). For some inspiration, watch some personal challenges created by young people, have a go yourself, or create your own.
Inclusion 2020 activities
Taken from our ‘Inclusion 2020’ project which has seen 50 primary, secondary and special schools across England organise inclusive countrywide ‘Learning and Discovery’ sport festivals. At the events, 3,000 pupils of all abilities have been experiencing a variety of Para sports and get the opportunity to compete. In this document (page 11 onwards) there’s a wide range of inclusive formats to utilise.
I hope you find them useful! Have a great day!
