Home learning - Try Your Best challenge


Home learning - Try Your Best challenge

KS1/Foundation, KS2

We would like you and your family to spend the next week learning a new active skill by practising it for five minutes a day.

Take part in the weekly challenge

Remember to try your best and give it a go! A resilient attitude is the most important thing to accomplish. You can learn more about resilience and the power of positive thinking in our Home learning - Resilience pack.

Use our activity pack to find lots of football skills videos - you can choose one of these to attempt or pick your own.

Don't forget to track your progress over the week using the Try Your Best challenge template. If you can't print the template, write your plan on a piece of paper and share them with us, along with any photos or videos of you practising your skill on Twitter via @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars or email

Try Your Best: The tricks
