Year 1 & 2 Move! Resource

The recommended amount of physical activity for children aged 5-18 is 60 minutes a day.  It should be hard enough for us to get a little bit out of breath and a little bit sweaty!

Children and young people should aim to minimise the amount of time spent sitting and move more, when and where possible long periods of not moving should be broken up with physical activity.

We understand that keeping your child active during the Covid-19 outbreak is challenging which is why we have put together a list of resources to help keep your child ‘Moving’:
