Change4Life with Disney returns

Tuesday 12th July 2016

This summer, Change4Life with Disney returns with 10 Minute Shake Up activities inspired by the new Disney·Pixar Finding Dory film. The campaign encourages kids to ‘Just Keep Moving’ to help reach the 60 minutes of exercise they need each day through 10 minute bursts of activity. 

Primary schools will receive Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculum-linked 10 Minute Shake Up with Disney PE lesson plans and activities to use throughout the year. The packs are a great way to get pupils moving ahead of the summer holidays.

Pupils will also receive fun wall charts to take home with some new and exciting Disney-inspired shake ups to encourage them to record their activity. The wall charts are a great way for parents to keep kids entertained this summer holiday, with even more Shake Up activities available online – visit the Change4Life School Zone or search Change4Life/schools.

In school-aged children, physical activity can lead to better academic achievement, increased attention span, improved behaviour and self-confidence as well as increased physical health and a reduced risk of developing chronic conditions and other illnesses in the future.

The teaching packs are arriving in all primary schools that receive the School Fruit and Veg Scheme deliveries now. Look out for the wall charts, which will arrive under separate delivery at the beginning of July.
