Although fundamentally simple, healthy & active living needs to be learned!
GO Run For Fun provides schools with a great opportunity to formalise active leisure and participation in sport. It creates a fun event that is locally organised but part of a national effort to improve childrens health. The events create an ideal opportunity for goal setting, achievement planning and practice in making healthy lifestyle choices.
Through their involvement in the run, children will experience first-hand the fun they can have taking part in an exciting event and competing either as individuals, in teams, or as classes. By preparing for the event, they can learn how to develop skills of jogging and running, coordination, balance, and pace, as well as receiving hints and tips as to how to fuel their bodies for success.
There are numerous ways in which to build our videos and activities into lessons before your GO Run event (or even if you don’t have an event yet scheduled!) All modules around sport and healthy eating can be integrated with other areas of the curriculum, including maths, English, science, art and citizenship.
