The issue of children’s health has become an increasingly important topic in recent years. The explosion in leisure pursuits such as computer games and television, combined with bad eating habits has resulted in a rapid rise in childhood obesity. Children are now leading such sedentary lifestyles that serious concerns about how this will affect health later in life have arisen.
Aims and objectives are to give teachers and coaches an up-date on issues surrounding physical education in primary and secondary schools, at the end of the day teachers will have improved confidence in teaching a variety of physical education lessons based on the PE curriculum they may not have delivered previously, such as:
Imaginative activities based on dance and gymnastics, yoga, developing stretching programmes,
Walking and mindfulness as well as engaging children in fitness activities for primary and secondary school children such as aerobics, circuit training, how to integrate activities involving strength and conditioning into PE lessons appropriate for children aged 12-16 years old.
