We’re committed to playing our part in ensuring children have at least 30 active minutes at school. The government has directed schools in Childhood Obesity : A Plan for Action to ensure :
Every primary school child should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity a day. At least 30 minutes should be delivered in school every day through active break times, PE, extra-curricular clubs, active lessons, or other sport and physical activity events, with the remaining 30 minutes supported by parents and carers outside of school time.
The whole school meets outside at 10am every day for Wake Up Shake Up (WUSU). On Fridays, each class will have a chance to lead WUSU and will be able to choose the two songs that we do. 5,6M went first, dancing their socks off to 5-6-7-8 by Steps and Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake.
We’ll also be launching the 30:30 Wristband Challenge in the new year to encourage children to complete the 30 active minutes out of school, too.
