EDUCATION AND EXERCISE SCHOOLS PROJECT
AGE RANGE: Year 4 | PRICE: FREE | PROJECT BY: The Hive Foundation powered by the National League Trust
Education and Exercise is delivered to hundreds of school children in Harrow. According to research, only 30% of boys and 25% of girls in Year 4 meet the recommended quota of exercise each day. Such inactivity levels are leading to a variety of issues affecting both physical and mental health.
The Education and Exercise programme is designed to help children develop their physical, cognitive and social skills in a fun and educational way. This is done through The Hive Foundation project Education and Exercise. It is envisaged that by the end of this 6 week project the children will be educated and closely linked to their local Football Club and that the Club itself can welcome a new generation of supporters to The Hive.
EDUCATION AND EXERCISE
The Programme is a bespoke educational programme for children aged between 9-10 that has been developed by The Hive Foundation and St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School in Harrow and is supported by the National League Trust. It is envisaged that by the end of this 6 week project the children will be educated and closely linked to their local Football Club and that the Club itself can welcome a new generation of supporters to The Hive.
To make it work we have written five lesson outlines for you to use with your class. We have attempted to make it as cross-curricular as possible covering subject areas such as;
· Drama (speech, language and communication)
· Health and Fitness
· Economic wellbeing
· Art and Design
The 6th lesson is a visit to The Hive to meet Mr Bumble and the staff.
By combining six weeks of practical sporting sessions with classroom sessions, the programme encourages physical activity, promotes nutritional education and builds awareness of the importance of a balanced diet and active lifestyle. This is the first year of the project and the aim is to deliver to close to 1,000 primary school children in Harrow.
