Going to infant or primary school is a major change in a child’s life. The school day becomes more structured in content and timing. Sedentary behaviour increases along with class environment and teaching method.
The Active Movement programme recognises this different context and evolves to complement and integrate with everyday routine. It maintains its educational components, but now empowers teachers to integrate non-sedentary behaviour and add low-level activity into the classroom, around the school and even at home without class disruption or compromising teaching time.
Its impact can bring a dynamism to the classroom, affecting energy levels, concentration, behaviour, revision, attainment and even nutritional habits.
