physical benefits

Government recommendations state that children should be getting at least 60 minutes vigorous exercise per day, 30 minutes of this should be done at school and include activities that strengthen muscles and bones. Evidence shows this will improve a child’s general health and wellbeing but will also allow them to focus better during the school day as regular sweaty exercise helps us think better by stimulating new brain cells and improving a child’s attention span. Healthy Kids, Healthy Lives.
