We are part of a government funded county wide project for early years education.Mrs Wylie, Miss Holmes and Mrs Hepworth have been given the opportunity to attend high quality training in early talk,family work, physical development and healthy lifestyles.They are now delivering the Healthy Super Movers programme in school which involves providing children with a PJ Masks themed backpack which they can bring home with ideas for activities you can do together.
Healthy movers aims to get children ready for life as they develop, grow and learn. The resource does
not simply support their educational and cognitive development, but actively includes their social and
emotional development. It supports a broader preparation for future life. The resource contributes to
the development of the whole child.School and home can work together to use healthy movers so we
can help our children to be healthy, happy, social, physical and creative thinkers. Physical play provides
positive opportunities for enabling, engaging and enriching all of these key abilities.
The bag includes a soft touch medium-sized ball and a bean bag. There are also some PJ
Masks stickers and two information sheets with suggestions of activities families can enjoy doing at home
together. We will send new activity cards home each week.
The scheme only provided bags for children in Year Reception so we have supplied bags for the Year 1s.
They are so very excited to have their bags. We have been doing Super Healthy Movers activities for 15
minutes most days since we came back in January and will continue to do so.
