Pupils get active with Change4Life programme

Pupils get active with Change4Life programme

Posted: 16th December 2020

Children are having additional PE lessons in an effort to change their lives.

Magna Carta Primary Academy is taking part in the Change4Life public health programme to improve children’s physical fitness, their confidence and to help with their co-operation and relationships.

Pupils in Year 1 to 4 are working to improve their agility, balance and co-ordination, as well as their teamwork skills.

Phil Dawes, BMAT director of PE and sport, said: “It’s known that PE has huge benefits for children’s physical wellbeing and exercise can help to improve children’s concentration. It can also help with their mental wellbeing through improved self-confidence and learning to compete fairly, as well as having benefits to social wellbeing as they learn how to co-operate with others and build friendships through teamwork.

“The hope is the children get into good habits when they’re young that they will continue for life. This applies to nutrition and hygiene, as well as exercise and fitness.

“We are lucky that, at Magna Carta, there is space for these sessions to take place. We are also fortunate that the school has a PE apprentice who supports all of these sessions.”

The Change4Life sessions run alongside the Daily Mile and PE lessons.
