15 for Fit

Giuseppe Loporchio

This year at the Grove Junior School, we are going to raise the fitness and health of every child. Twice a week, for 15 minutes each time, every class will be undertaking an extra session of physical activity. Research shows that a child’s focus and attention, behaviour and feelings towards sport, are all improved with physical activity. The extra sessions might involve games, athletic events or even physical activities that incorporate elements of the curriculum. This will be in addition to the physical education sessions.

Thursday 8th saw the whole school begin their first ‘15 for Fit’ sessions with a variety of activities including: running, fundamentals of movement, games on the playground, and activities involving maths.

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were much more focussed when they returned to their classrooms.
