Change4Life, Public Health England’s campaign to help families lead healthier lives, together with Disney, has launched a range of new 10 Minute Shake Ups teaching materials. Inspired by six magical Disney stories, 10 Minute Shake Ups can help to keep kids active throughout the school day.
3.5 million 10 Minute Shake Ups packs have been distributed to the majority of state primary schools in England.
Teachers are urged to use the free curriculum-linked teaching resources in class, including suitcase worksheets to use in school, plus passports and stickers to send home with pupils. This means that pupils can plan their own activities in school using the suitcase worksheets, before taking their passport and stickers home to record their activity over the summer holidays.
For the first time, Change4Life is providing resources tailored to different age groups within key stages: Lower Key Stage 1, Upper Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2. All the resources link directly to the PE curriculum and provide supplementary support for PSHE, English and spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development.
The Disney inspired lesson plans and supporting materials aim to encourage pupils to keep moving all summer long. Pupils can find out about their favourite Disney characters’ skills and activities including those from Zootropolis, Frozen Fever, Beauty and the Beast, Moana and The Lodge, as well as Disney Pixar’s Cars 3.
Search Change4Life/schools to download the new 10 Minute Shake Up activities and lesson plans.
Teachers and head teachers can also sign up to the School Zone newsletter to hear about new resources launching in the autumn term.
