    Public Health England have devised a ‘Shake Up Toolkit’ that is easy to use and offers plenty of ideas for inclusively getting your class moving! Use this LINK to find out more.

    Who is it for? Here is PHEs explanation about who might benefit from these activities,
    “It’s time to shake things up as pupils go on an active journey with some of their favourite characters! These engaging Disney, Pixar and Marvel inspired activities are designed to be fun and flexible, so they can be used at different times throughout the school day, without a PE kit. The activities support Relationships Education and Health Education, with opportunities for pupils to reflect on how being active can benefit their wellbeing.”

    If you are worried it won’t be linked to the curriculum PHE have thought of that too:
    “Supports the Relationships Education and Health Education statutory guidance

    Physical health and mental wellbeing
    By the end of primary school:
    *emphasis should be given to the positive two-way relationship between good physical health and good mental wellbeing, and the benefits to mental wellbeing of physical exercise and time spent outdoors
    *pupils should know the characteristics and mental and physical benefits on an active lifestyle

    Early years foundation stage
    Physical development:
    *provide opportunities to be active and interactive
    *children know the importance of physical exercise for good health
    *children move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space

    Personal, social and emotional development:
    *understand appropriate behaviour in groups
    *have confidence in their own abilities

    KS1 PE
    *pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time
    *engage in competitive (both against self and others) and co-operative physical activities
    *participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending

    PSHE Core Theme 1 (Health and wellbeing)
    *H3 – about how physical activity helps us to stay healthy; and ways to be physically active everyday
    *H17 – about things that help people feel good (e.g. playing outside, doing things they enjoy, spending time with family, getting enough sleep)

    KS2 PE
    *pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time
    *enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other
    *use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
    *take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team

    PSHE Core Theme 1 (Health and wellbeing)
    *H7 – how regular (daily/weekly) exercise benefits physical and mental health

    Definitely worth checking this one out!
