Keeping Active at Home!!

 

Over the coming weeks, it will be increasingly important to keep our children physically active in order to maintain their physical health and mental wellbeing.

 

It is usually recommended that children and young people (aged 5-18) engage in moderate to vigorous activity for an average of 60 minutes per day to aid their muscular fitness, bone strength and movement skills. For younger children (aged 1-5), 180 minutes of physical movement is recommended in order to attain key developmental outcomes. In normal circumstances, children would achieve a large proportion of this through school-based play, physical education, active travel, The Daily Mile initiative, extra-curricular activities and sports. 

 

Please see website links below for some different ways of keeping your children active.

 

There are lots of weekly physical challenges taking place, we will share them on here and Twitter.  We would love to see and hear what you have been doing, keep us updated on Dojo! Are you doing Joe Wicks at 9am everyday?
