Children keeping physically active is important!
- Aim for an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a day
- Reduce the time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity
- All activities should make you breathe faster and feel warmer
- With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it’s more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive
- Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic

- Try to get through all of the exercise by the end of the day. Mark the squares off as you go along
- Roll a dice/coin/bead and see what you land on!
- Use the grid to play naughts and crosses – make sure you do the exercise if you use the square
