Fun Daily Activities
Our local North East Lincolnshire PE team have produced a range of videos on youtube to help children to keep active with fun activities and challenges. You may need to improvise what you use for equipment but keep safe. Click on the videos and have a go. There will be new ones each week.

School Games Active Championships – TOP YA!
The School Games Active Championships is a national activity campaign to help young people across the UK to #StayInWorkOut using the video-based platform powered by TopYa!. New challenges will be available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to engage with.
Primary and secondary-aged children can join the School Games Active Championships at any time with free active challenges being set via videos within a designated School Games version of the TopYa! Active app. All they need to do is download the app, register as a player and type in the Invite Code 23880.
Children practise the challenges, then submit their best video using a mobile device to receive personal coaching feedback from the TopYa! team of experienced virtual coaches. Points are earned for each video submitted, leading to climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!
The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do to communicate with one another is give each other a virtual ‘high-five’, which functions like a social media ‘like’. Video content is suitable for young people of all ages and abilities, with regular submissions from National Governing Bodies of Sport
Create your own account, and then create your young person’s account(s). Skip the invite process and simply tell them their username or let them use your device to submit challenges. (They need your permission to use the app if they are younger than 13). All activity on the app is COPPA and GDPR compliant, providing a safe online space for children to complete skill challenges, upload videos and get thoughtful virtual coaching feedback.
Follow these steps:
- Download the TopYa! Active app from the App Store or Google Play
- Create your Parent account
- When prompted to enter an Invite Code enter 23880 and then choose Primary or Secondary School League based on which type of school your child attends
- Then create your kid(s) account(s)
- Let them work on the activities on their own device or film and upload videos from your device on their behalf!
