WHAT OUR SCHOOLS SAY...
Bishop Hedley Catholic High School
Adrian Davies, teacher and fitness enthusiast recently shared his thoughts with us. “We needed a way to get kids moving again, they’ve been static for too long.” It seems myphizz has proved the perfect tool to encourage their pupils to engage in a wide range of physical activities and experience the right level of competition for them. “Kids here are very competitive, especially if they can compete against teachers. I take part in fitness competitions outside of school so the kids are always excited at the thought of challenging me.”
Anthony McBride, co-founder of myphizz, said: “By drawing on the expertise of schools, myphizz has been built to give pupils control over their own physical activity, whilst contributing towards the national curriculum’s physical education objectives. We’re absolutely thrilled that Bishop Hedley is seeing the benefits first hand of myphizz. With schools still being impacted by the pandemic and children potentially missing out on physical activity whilst isolating at home, myphizz provides a way for schools to continue communicating and engaging pupils in exercise whilst not in a school setting.”

“In secondary schools we need to be innovative and encourage pupils to engage and take part in group challenges. As myphizz is accessed directly from a PC or device, it has proved to be a great tactic to drive engagement with PE via a channel they are comfortable with.”

St Mary's Catholic Primary School
Siobhan Roe, teacher at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, which has been trialling the app said: “myphizz has been a huge hit amongst our year three pupils - there’s been such a buzz in the classroom with every single pupil involved in creating, sharing and accomplishing activities. The children have rushed home to tell their parents all about their ‘phizzes’ and we can’t wait to see the rest of school enjoy it."
“The platform is so easy to use and I’ve found the images to describe the ‘phizzes’ really useful as it helps a lot of the children with their reading and spellings as they compare words and pictures. The mix of activities that can be set is incredible - we’ve used myphizz for practicing our times tables as well as challenging each other to do as many press-ups as possible! myphizz has opened up a world of fun activity and movements for our children."
