Virtual Sports Day 

Monday 29th June - Friday 10th July 

The BACA PE Department are running a Virtual Sports Day over two weeks from Monday 29th June - Friday 10th July 2020.

Like any other sports day, you will be competing for your house and aiming to be crowned champions of the BACA Virtual Sports Day 2020.

There are 10 challenges for you to take part in. Each slide will show a different challenge and all of the challenges require little or no equipment.

If you only want to take part in some of the challenges and not all, that is fine but remember more challenges means more points for your house.

To take part, watch the PE teachers perform each challenge in the videos below first and then when you are ready, submit your scores using this link - click here
Simply log in, fill out the information, enter your score and submit the form. If this doesn’t work, please email your PE teacher your scores.

The BACA PE Department will be keeping tracking of all of the scores and adding up the points. Stay up-to-date with all of the latest information from the BACA PE Department by following @baca_pe on Instagram and @baca_sport on Twitter.

Good luck and may the best house win!!!
