Participation Award

Download from the left the form where pupils can colour in a smiley face for each 10 minutes of physical activity they do to try and get the 60 minutes per day. There is a Bronze, Silver and Gold certificate to be earnt over a week

30 Minutes of Activity

Each pupil should be getting 30 minutes of activity at school per day.

This can be divide in to three categories:

Active Learning – lessons are adapted to combine movement and learning to promote cross curricular learning

Active Breaks - designed to provide pupils the opportunity to engage in physical activity

Keep activity breaks short 1-5 minutes, perform 2-3 times a day

Use music to help motivate – make sure it is appropriate to the age group, keep it up beat. It is a good way to signal the beginning and end of the break. Also helps with the pacing

Active Environment – activities allowing pupils to be more active within their daily routine

See attached sheet for ideas re active breaks
