Premier Education have been busy recording Activity Professional lead home learning videos as part of their commitment to keeping children active at home.
They have launched a brand new YouTube channel where new videos will be released each day at 3.30 pm. The idea is that this can act as an after school home learning activity and replace the exercise children would normally get during extra-curricular clubs (at school). Sessions will focus on activities including dance, football, fitness, gymnastics, basketball, tennis and yoga and more.

We want to encourage all our children to walk to school as there are many benefits. Here are a few:
It's advised that children need at least one hour of physical activity each day. Walking to school is a great way of exercising.
Plan your journey to school through traffic-free roads and quieter routes to avoid high levels of pollution.
Studies show that children can burn off excess energy by walking to school thereby allowing them to settle in class and focus on learning.

Teach children how to walk safely to school so they can continue to do this as they get older.
A walking bus or walking to school with friends when older, can help children build friendships. As a parent, walking to and from school with your child is a great way of having time in the day to bond - relaxing and talking.
