We often teach around 300 children per day in the safety of your own school which not only keeps your costs down but also means children can carry on with their normal lessons for the rest of the school day. Maximum impact and minimal disruption. Schools can pick n mix between our sessions below to create their day visit :
Hands-on Healthy Workshop – a 1 hour hands-on session for up to 60 pupils (Nursery-Yr6) that engages and motivates children as they gain new learning and embed existing knowledge on the topic of the human body and keeping healthy. Topics include: the human body, healthy eating, a balanced diet, nutritional values, importance of physical activity, teeth, hygiene, sleep, household safety, alcohol & drugs (Yr5/6 only) and making informed choices. Children can also then take part in our online 7 day challenge tool that carry’s on the learning at home for the whole family.
Fun Fitness Sessions – designed to give all pupils a full body workout at the same time as reinforcing the key messages of keeping healthy from the hands-on workshop. A fun-packed, non-stop, fast-paced session that motivates pupils to understand that keeping active is a vital part of staying healthy and can be a lot of fun (Nursery-Yr6).
Alcohol & Drug Awareness Workshop – a safe environment for pupils to begin considering this sensitive subject, which many schools and families find difficult to tackle. Our experienced coaches, with hands-on activities and anecdotal stories, will provide a comfortable and relaxed space in which to explore the issues surrounding drugs and alcohol, as well as the associated issues of peer pressure (Yr5-8).
For an additional small cost we can run ‘Parents Healthy Workshops’ or a ‘Staff PE Training CPD’ after a school day visit.
