Dear Parents and Carers,

To celebrate the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020, United Learning is bringing PE, sport and creative arts departments together to inspire students and staff in schools and central office to take on their own physical challenges across a 20-week period.

The challenges are centred around the figure 2020, whether that be 2,020, 20x20, 200x20 or any other configuration that enables individuals or teams to undertake challenges that will have a positive influence on their physical and mental well-being. Creative arts will bring a Japanese flavour to the challenges by creating a commemorative piece that captures the school’s values as well of those of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Challenge is based on a pledge to either achieve a total number of active points or committing to doing some form of exercise during the Challenge 2020 period. The challenge is purely based on setting your own personal wellbeing target for a set period of time. The degree of challenge is totally up to you.

For example, you could set a target of a minimum of 2020 points to be earned during the 4-month challenge period.

You will need to keep a log of your weekly and monthly exercise/activity. The Challenge 2020 EXCEL tracker has been programmed to cumulate your distances over the challenge period. For children or adults who want to calculate the number of steps and do not own a smart watch or Fitbit you may wish to purchase step counter watch, these can be purchased at cost price from Mr Townsend for £12 each (payable using Parent Pay) or you may wish to purchase your own.  If children are wearing these in school, they must not disrupt learning and must be clearly named. School cannot take responsibility for them if they are lost or damaged, they will be the responsibility of the pupil.

At the end of Challenge 2020, in May, you will need to submit your exercise evidence log using the EXCEL tracker to the email below.

So, a child’s week could look like this (siblings not at Hanwell Fields can join in to!):

How do I keep track of my points?
