Health & Fitness – Claire Regan
The health and well-being of pupils is vitally important. Obesity is a major problem in ill health in children, mainly due to children nowadays going home and playing on computer games and leading sedentary lifestyles with a lack of knowledge on both physical exercise and maintaining a healthy and balanced diet.
Obesity in children is not something we can shy away from nowadays and it is set to become a worsening disaster for adults and children.
To stay healthy or to improve health, Children should be doing at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
Encouraging children to eat a nutritious, balanced diet early on in life is so important so they get the correct amount of vitamins and minerals in their diet to help them grow and develop optimally. They are more likely to be energised and motivated, supporting their ability to learn.
Fitness sessions with KS2 have been implemented every Wednesday.
– I explain to children why a healthy, balanced diet is important.
– I give them more options to have a varied diet and a healthy relationship with food.
– Fun, fitness sessions for children to participate in.
– Giving children 15 minute plans to do at home and to try and encourage their parents to do it with them.
I measure progress each term by getting children to complete different functional fitness tests. At the beginning of term we will complete the bleep test and re do the test at the end of term to see if any improvement has been made. These tests change every term to keep it fun and varied for the children.
