Physical Activity is a broad term referring to all bodily movement that uses energy. It includes all forms of physical education, sports and dance activities. However, it is wider than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, work-related activity, outdoor and adventurous activities, active travel (e.g. walking, cycling, rollerblading, scooting) and routine, habitual activities such as using the stairs, doing housework and gardening.
At Middleton Primary School, we look to at active elements to many of our lessons including brain breaks like the Daily Mile and practising timetables with Supermovers. We also look to get the children moving within class to enhance their learning.
We like to take our lessons outside and use the outside classroom and we are lucky enough to have our very own Forest School! We also like to be active on our trips like den building at Ledston Estate.
