Here are 6 challenge ideas for you to use in your next gym lesson using simple equipment that should be available at your school. Split your class up into equal teams, maybe in their house groups or school colours, and have them complete against each other with these exciting relay skill challenges. You can watch and play the videos to your class, demonstrating exactly what needs to be done.

I've given you a quick rundown for reach activity › The first team to have each player complete the activity (one at a time) then all sit down wins: 

  1. Split the class into 4 or 5 equal teams, then set up the relay race for each team

  2. Each group sits behind a starting cone at the start

  3. On “GO”, 1 person at a time from each group completes the task then comes back

  4. The next person in the group then goes…keep going until everyone has had a go

  5. The first group to all have completed the task wins
