Children

Being active is a fundamental part of being a Rookie and is central to our curriculum with pupils being encouraged to learn through being active. All pupils receive a curriculum which follows the Government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Guidelines, with added opportunities to be active through our enrichment classes.

 

In 2011 UK Public Health Physical Activity Guidelines for Under 5’s were introduced which recommend under 5’s should be active for three hours a day and state that:

 

-  Physical activity should be encouraged from birth, particularly through floor-based play and water-based activities in safe environments.

 

- All under 5s should minimise the amount of time spent being sedentary (being restrained or sitting) for extended periods (except time spent sleeping).

 

Individual physical and mental capabilities should be considered when interpreting the guidelines.  

 

The benefits of being active include:

 

-Develops motor skills

 

-Improves cognitive development

 

-Contributes to a healthy weight

 

-Enhances bone and muscular development

 

-Supports learning of social skills
