This area of the website is to offer you support and guidance to help you to encourage your children to take part in daily physical activity. The Chief Medical Officer recommends that children of primary school age take part in at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day (please see information below). This is for a wide range of positive reasons including: maintaining a healthy weight, improving health and fitness, strengthening muscles and bones, developing co-ordination and helping children to feel good.
This partnership website is usually just for the use of schools and teachers in North West Essex, however during this time whilst children are not at school, I shall be supplying weekly ideas for physical activities for KS1 and KS2.
The activities aim to be wide ranging, from creative skills, problem solving activities, fitness, games for the family or links to websites to follow. All the activities will be stored in this ‘Parent Zone’ so you can revisit them whenever you wish to.
Please follow or tag me in your activities on twitter @NWEssexSSP as I would love to see them!
Take care everyone.
