Children in Year 4 and Year 5 have enjoyed being part of the six-week MK Dons Move and Learn Programme which has been delivered by Kevin.
The six-week programme comprises of a combination of physical and theory elements. Firstly, the physical aspects of the programme includes various different warm-up games and activities to develop the children’s ABC’s. All activity is derived around the National Curriculum for PE, with some being sport-specific (football, handball, dodgeball). All activities are differentiated to ensure challenges and opportunities for success are provided for all pupils.
Secondly, the theory elements delve into various different areas of physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Starting with the benefits and effects of physical activity on the body and mind, pupils have explored the Eatwell Guide and have used this knowledge to investigate meal planning for a healthy, balanced diet. The final two weeks consist of the importance of hydration and the Joy of Moving, leading into each pupil making a personal pledge about physical activity and exercise.
