The Yorkshire Sport Foundation in association with Active Calderdale hosted a brilliant PE conference for local primary schools at Shay Stadium earlier this week.
We were thrilled to attend and deliver our workshop: Active Bodies > Active Minds > Active Classrooms. The workshop was really well received and gave delegates the opportunity to discuss the successes and challenges of keeping children moving during the school day and beyond.
One of the key takeaways from the workshop was the importance of incorporating physical activity into the school day in creative and engaging ways. Many of the delegates shared innovative ideas for getting children moving, such as incorporating movement breaks into the classroom, using technology to track and motivate physical activity, and creating active challenges for students to participate in during break and lunchtime.
Another important aspect of the workshop was the connection between physical activity and cognitive function. Studies have shown that physical activity can have a positive impact on children's academic performance, concentration, and overall mental well-being. This emphasizes the importance of keeping children active not only for physical health benefits, but for cognitive benefits as well.
It was inspiring to see so many educators and professionals working towards promoting physical activity in children. Their ideas and insights will be beneficial to many other educators and parents.

We look forward to attending other events this academic year, if you see us be sure to come and say hi.
