30 minutes additional activity a day for pupils: the solution – free of charge.

There is a lot to be said for the notion of an additional 30 minutes of activity each day for each child in primary school.  For such activity not only cuts down the chances of obesity but also results in dramatic improvements in behaviour and academic achievement.

Since the announcement of the additional 30 minutes a day was made we’ve been working on materials which deliver exactly this – without the need for the children to leave the classroom or bring in a specialist teacher.

And we’d like you to try 5 of them for free.

In fact we’ve develop a series of over 1000 curriculum-based active lessons and activities which meet the requirements of this new initiative.

All of these can be undertaken within normal lessons without leaving the regular classroom or, if you prefer, they can be taken in a hall or outdoors.

What’s more, these lessons are each complete in themselves, with curriculum-based lesson plans and supporting interactive movies, flashcards, music, and assessments.  All of which makes the whole process easy to plan, teach, and evaluate.

In effect it means that the complete requirement of 30 minutes a day additional physical activity can now be met by the school using these resources, integrating them easily into the normal teaching timetable.

And the improvement in grades and achievement comes as a bonus.  Which is why we are offering a limited number of schools the chance to use these materials without charge and without any obligation.

You can read more about imoves’ active lessons and choose the 5 lessons that you wish to try out, from literacy to science, from PSHE to PE, on our website.

You can, of course, sign up to the free use of the resources straightaway, but if you have any questions please do email enquiries@imoves.com or phone us on 0114 2661061.
