Virtual School Games

Specsavers Virtual Sussex School Games

Hello Wallands!

Today, is the launch of the Specsavers Sussex School Games and it is our chance to work as a community, representing our school, to compete to be Sussex champions!

Every week, a different sport will take place, made up of four personal sporting challenges which can be completed at home.

Scores for each challenge need to be submitted online and will contribute to our schools’ average score. When the competition is completed medals will be awarded in individual sports and an overall award will go to the school who is at the top of the leaderboard.

A new sport, and it’s four challenges, will be published at 9.30am on a Monday. There will be video tutorials to watch along with a PDF detailing each challenge. This week’s sport is hockey. Don’t worry if you do not have the equipment, it suggests alternatives. I am about to start my personal challenge using a broom and a tennis ball! Be creative, it is your determination and resilience that will count!

To take part you just need you go to and follow the instructions. Each week, you will have until midday on Friday to submit your scores and the leaderboards will be published later that day. You simply need to put in your first name, initial of your surname, year group and then select our school from the dropdown list. When you have added that information you can input your individual scores for each of the challenges.

I hope as many of you as possible will get involved, in times like these keeping fit and learning new sporting skills will help us to feel stronger and happier!


Good luck, I will keep you updated with my weekly progress and look forward to seeing Wallands Community Primary School appearing on the leaderboard!

Stay safe and keep smiling!
