HOME SCHOOLING & EXERCISE

 

#KeepMovingSuffolk

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF EXERCISE ON YOUR CHILD’S EDUCATION

 

We know that supporting children that are learning at home isn’t easy.

In fact, we know it’s really hard.

That’s why we’ve produced this resource, to help you build exercise into your child’s daily routine.

No matter what your child’s age, there is something here to help.

We hope you like it, but most of all we hope you find it useful.

THE BENEFITS OF
EXERCISE AND MOVEMENT

 

There are many benefits to keeping children active, both for their physical and mental health.

 

  • Physical education is important for the development of the whole person
  • It contributes to a child’s physical, social, mental and emotional enhancement
  • Children are usually more focused after exercise
  • It can improve sleep and appetite
  • Exercise and regular movement builds resilience
  • Exercise helps healthy weight management
  • Reduces feelings of anxiety

DANCE WITH MILLIE

6-weeks fun dancing

Every Wednesday, starting on 27 January, we’ll post a new dance tutorial with Millie, our Keep Moving Suffolk champion and professional dancer.

The routines are suitable for everyone and are fun to do, plus they’ll burn lots of energy, and make you feel happier and healthier.

Grab a grown-up to do it with you!

It’s week 5 – and it’s MUSICAL THEATRE!

CHILDREN’S RESOURCES

Whilst we’re having to stay at home due to coronavirus, parents and carers may be worried about their children’s development and the effect of missing regular school or nursery.

No one expects parents to act as teachers, or to provide the activities and feedback that a school or nursery would. Parents and carers should simply do their best to help children and support their learning while dealing with other demands.

And remember, you’re doing a great job!
