The School of parkrun

parkrun_school_linear2

parkrun may be out for the time being, but the School of parkrun is here!

 

We’re super happy to say that from Monday 30 March, we will be setting daily parkrun-themed tasks for children of all ages and the whole family to try together.

 

We’ll be covering five subjects:

  • English
  • Science
  • Geography
  • Maths
  • Art

Each morning we’ll set you a new challenge for the day on our YouTube channel, and you can then send us your work on social media using the hashtag #schoolofparkrun and we’ll share some of our favourites each day!

 

Here is your timetable:

All challenges can be done around the house or in the garden, making sure you stay safe and at home during this difficult time.

 

At the weekends, there are no lessons, but every Sunday morning we’ll have a special junior parkrun warm-up that the whole family can try in the living room or garden!

 

We should just say, the School of parkrun isn’t an actual school and there is no formal curriculum or exams (or detention!)… But we hope you’ll find it a fun way to learn more about parkrun as a family.

 

Parents: Make sure you follow parkrun on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube for daily tasks, and use the hashtag #schoolofparkrun

The heart of our communities

We’re working with our friends at Fields in Trust to celebrate parks and green spaces.   Fields in Trust Chief Executive Helen Griffiths tells us why it’s so important to protect our open spaces for future generations, and how you can help us by sharing why you love your parks.   We know our parks…

Planning a return to junior parkrun

We welcomed the news this week that grassroots sport is to resume in England after the current lockdown. With the knowledge that children’s physical activity levels have declined this year, we feel the time is right to start considering the possible return of junior parkrun events across the UK and Ireland in early 2021.  …
