Swans Primary School continues with “Move-it Mondays” in January 2020.
We actively encourage our children, families and teachers to join in with a little gentle exercise and lots of fun!
All physical movement is great for your heart – and anything that is good for your heart is also good for your brain, therefore setting you up perfectly for the day ahead. Studies show that even briefly exercising for 20 minutes aids memory, information processing and the release of happy hormones. It is also often seen to reduce anxiety and gives a real sense of achievement. These benefits are proven to be consistent for both children and adults.
Exercising as a family boosts motivation and encourages positive role models. In addition, it often results in better communication.
But if you can’t make it and your child is still keen to participate, please just let Miss Kirsty know beforehand. Siblings are always welcome!
The benefits are numerous, so join us for “Move-it Mondays” at 8:30am.
