Childhood Obesity - Primary Schools and Academies in England

The latest Government figures identify that almost a quarter of Reception children are obese or overweight. In Year 6Tahoma">, it is over a third.

30 Minutes a Day: Active Lessons

To help to combat this childhood obesity epidemic the UK Chief Medical Officer recommends that all children and young people should engage in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity (MVPA) for at least 60 minutes every day.

At least 30 minutes should be delivered in school every day through a range of opportunities including active lessons.

This is where Active Science fits in. It supports you in delivering 30 minutes of physical activity a day through your science lessons.

The lessons are fun, active and exciting and help your children to learn about science through healthy movement activity in the classroom, hall, playground and field.

Through fun physical activity, Active Science brings to life the programmes of study for science, not just in the biology section of the curriculum but also key aspects of chemistry, physics and working scientifically too.
