Health Week, Wednesday – Get Active


Wednesday – Let’s get active! 

Being active and exercising will keep us healthy and it is so much fun….

There are lots of different things you can do to keep active and stay healthy.  You should try to be active every day for at least an hour.

  • Why don’t you make a chart and give yourself a sticker or colour a box every time you do something active.  Maybe you could:
    • Go for a walk
    • Go on a bike ride
    • Go on your trampoline
    • Go on your spacehopper
    • Take your scooter for a ride
    •  Run around your garden
    • Do a cosmic Kids Yoga programme
    • Practice some dance moves/play party games to music (musical bumps/statues etc)
    • Do some action songs on youtube (e.g. See the little bunnies sleeping, head, shoulders, knees and toes, We’re going to the zoo etc)
    • Make an obstacle course for you and your family to complete
    • Play throwing and catching with someone
    • Play football with someone
    • Play target games e.g. skittles, basket ball, tin can alley
    • Play hop scotch
    • Or just learn a new active skill……


  • This would be a good time to learn a little bit about time.  Maybe your Mum or Dad could time you to help you begin to understand how long things take:
    • How many of each of these things can you do in 10 seconds, then 30 seconds, then 1 minute:
      • Jump
      • Hop
      • Run between two targets/wall to wall in a room
      • Throw a ball in the air and catch it
      • Throw balls in a basket/paired up socks in a washing basket
    • These are great activities to practise counting too!!!
