Living and Learning: 60 active minutes!

Wednesday 24 May 2023

Over the last two weeks in Living and Learning, we’ve been thinking about the importance of physical activity for our health and mental well-being.

We know that we need to be active for 60 minutes a day, and with our Maths learning we can make the connection that this is an hour! We’ve thought about all the different ways that we can be active each day: walk to school, PE lessons, swimming lessons, dance and gymnastics lessons, Wake Up Shake Up in school, skipping, playing with our friends at playtime and going up and down the stairs!

Help at home by making sure you are active for 60 minutes a day!

We are really enjoying our PE lessons at the moment! This helps us be active for 60 minutes each day. We’ve been playing  games called ‘lions and hyenas’ and ‘bib tag’.  We are making the games more challenging by thinking about the space we are playing in and the equipment we have. This will make us really good at our important skills for PE such as:

“running skills”

“dodging skills and looking skills”

“thinking skills”
