The benefits of incorporating mindfulness and relaxation into your day.

Christmas can be a very busy time! So many things to do, people to see and excitement for when Father Christmas will arrive. It’s important for children not to be too overwhelmed by it all, so here are the benefits of incorporating mindfulness and relaxation into your day.

We all know how children get around Christmas; excited, tired, and emotional. Christmas can be such a magical time in a child’s life, and we want to encourage them to love it for as long as possible. We, as parents, want to keep the magic of Christmas alive for a very long time. But what happens when the children get a little tired, but we have so many more Christmas activities planned? They get overtired, and a little cranky. What if I could give you a secret to be able to manage this, this holiday time? Read on to find out…

The simplest thing to do, and sometimes the hardest when there is so much going on around us, is to plan some relaxation time. We need some quiet time for our bodies and our minds to rest, and relax before the next big, exciting Christmas adventure.

Yoga is a practice that combines physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation to promote overall well-being. Recently, there has been a growing interest in incorporating yoga into primary school physical education as a way to teach children mindfulness and relaxation techniques. You never know, as more of the schools we work in have booked in for Mini Me Yoga classes, your child may already know some moves that they could teach you!

The benefits of yoga for children are numerous. Physically, yoga can improve flexibility, strength, balance and coordination. It can also help children to develop a healthy body image and a positive relationship with their bodies. Mentally and emotionally, yoga can help children to develop focus, concentration and self-awareness. It can also help reduce stress, anxiety and depression.

We can use it as a relaxation method during the Christmas holiday time to regulate the children’s emotions when they have so much happening at that time. The children may not be able to regulate themselves and need some help to do so. Yoga is the perfect activity for it.

Here are a few poses you could do with your child to help them relax.

When incorporated into physical education, yoga can provide children with a break from more traditional, competitive sports and activities. This can be especially beneficial for children who may not excel in those areas or who may feel self-conscious about their physical abilities. Yoga allows children to move at their own pace and to focus on their own bodies, rather than comparing themselves to others.

Furthermore, yoga can be an inclusive practice, which can be beneficial for children with disabilities or special needs. Yoga can be modified to suit different abilities, and can be done seated or standing, making it accessible to a wide range of children.

Incorporating yoga into schools physical education can also help children develop important life skills such as self-regulation, self-care and empathy. Yoga encourages children to take responsibility for their own well-being and to develop a sense of inner peace and self-awareness.

If you feel like your child and their friends may like to have these sessions in their school, talk to the teacher and see if they have anything available, or alternatively contact TLE Sports Coaching on admin@tlesportscoaching.co.uk and see what availability we have. If we have enough interest, we could even start an after-school club?

When it comes time to relax over Christmas, we need to ensure we make time for it. It is very important for the body and mind to relax when there is a lot going on. You could look up simple yoga for children video on YouTube or have a look through our social media page and see if you can see some previous videos all about the yoga, and how to do it.

In conclusion, incorporating mindfulness and relaxation techniques through yoga can provide children with numerous physical, mental and emotional benefits. It can also be an inclusive practice that can help children to develop important life skills. Therefore, it is key to make time for periods  of relaxation over the Christmas holiday time. You deserve  to enjoy Christmas just as much as they children, so make some relaxation time and do some self-care, yoga or otherwise.

When it comes to finding childcare for your child, one important factor to consider is whether the provider is Ofsted registered. Ofsted, or the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, is the government body responsible for inspecting and regulating childcare providers in England.

Here are some benefits of using an Ofsted registered childcare provider:

Quality assurance

Ofsted registration is a sign that a childcare provider meets certain standards of quality and safety. By choosing an Ofsted registered provider, you can have peace of mind that your child will be in a safe and nurturing environment.

Regular inspections

Ofsted registered providers are inspected regularly to ensure they continue to meet the necessary standards. This means that any issues or concerns are identified and addressed promptly, helping to ensure the ongoing safety and well-being of the children in their care.

Professionalism

Ofsted registered providers must meet certain qualifications and training requirements in order to be registered. This means that the staff working with your child will be qualified and experienced in child care.

Access to funding

Some families may be eligible for government funding to help with the cost of childcare. Ofsted registration is often a requirement for providers to participate in these funding schemes, so choosing an Ofsted registered provider may open up financial assistance options for your family.

Parental involvement

Ofsted registered providers are required to involve parents in the care of their children, by keeping them informed and up-to-date with their child’s progress and well-being.

While choosing an Ofsted registered childcare provider is not the only factor to consider when selecting childcare, it is an important one that can provide assurance and peace of mind for parents.

We are proud to be an Ofsted Registered provider with many of our holiday camp venues having their own independent Ofsted number which is available when registering each morning on camp.

TLE Sports Coaching

As we head back to school after the February half term, there is a high possibility that your students’ activity levels will have dropped. Statistics show that unfortunately, physical activity dips well below the recommended time during school holidays. Therefore, we believe it is important that you look to incorporate physical activity into your school day upon their return.

To help inspire you, we have suggested ten ways you can incorporate physical activity into your school day below…

Timetable Physical Activity Bursts
Timetabling physical activity breaks throughout the day, simply short bursts of physical activity, such as jumping jacks or a quick game of tag, can help students refocus and energise during the school day.

The Five Minute Bubble
Implement a walking or biking programme for students to get to and from school with particular emphasis on those that live within a Five Minute Bubble of the school itself. Reward those children that walk or bike to school instead of being driven, even if they park a couple of streets out and walk the remainder of the distance. This not only helps them get physical activity but also reduces traffic and pollution around the school.

Go Green With A School Garden
Create a school garden where students can participate in planting, maintaining, and harvesting fruits and vegetables. Gardening is a great way for students to get physical activity while learning about the environment and healthy eating habits.

Extra Time for Physical Activity
Use physical activity as a reward for good behavior throughout the week. For example, students who earn a certain number of points or achieve a specific goal can participate in a fun physical activity such as a hula hoop contest or a game of dodgeball as part of additional enrichment time.

Offer a Comprehensive and Inclusive Extra-Curricular Timetable
Create an after-school sports programme to get students involved in physical activity. This not only provides an opportunity for students to get physical activity, but also helps them develop teamwork, leadership, and other related skills.

Physically Active Curriculum
Incorporate physical activity into the curriculum, for example, use programmes like Maths On The Move or be think outside the box and use science lessons concepts to create scavenger hunts or use dance concepts to create storytelling sessions through movement.

Provide opportunities for students to participate in physical activity during lunch and recess. Allow students to bring their own equipment such as jump ropes, balls, or frisbees and encourage them to use them during recess or lunchtime.

Invite guest speakers or physical education teachers to come in and teach students about different physical activities such as yoga, dance, or martial arts.

Use technology to incorporate physical activity into the classroom. For example, use interactive whiteboards to play virtual sports games or use fitness tracking apps to monitor progress and set goals.

Create a school-wide fitness challenge to get students and staff involved in physical activity. This can include a step-counting challenge, a fitness class challenge, or a team-building challenge.

Overall, incorporating physical activity into the school day is an important way to keep students healthy, focused, and engaged. It can be achieved through simple changes like adding a few physical activity breaks during the day, to more complex initiatives like after-school sports programs or school-wide fitness challenges. The key is to make it fun and engaging for students and staff.

The school holidays can be a fun and exciting time for children, but they can also be a time when children’s physical activity levels drop.

However, staying active during the school holidays has many benefits for children’s physical and mental well-being. Here are some of the key benefits of encouraging children to stay active during their time off from school.

Physical health: Regular physical activity is essential for maintaining good health and preventing chronic diseases. By staying active during the school holidays, children can continue to build strong bones and muscles, improve cardiovascular fitness, and maintain a healthy weight.

Mental health: Physical activity has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health and well-being. It can reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood and self-esteem, and increase feelings of happiness and accomplishment.

Improved academic performance: A healthy body can lead to a healthy mind, and regular physical activity has been linked to improved academic performance. Children who stay active during the school holidays may return to school ready to learn and perform better academically.

Increased socialisation: Many physical activities, such as team sports, encourage children to interact and socialize with their peers. This can be especially beneficial during the school holidays, when children may have more free time and less structured social interaction.

Fun and enjoyment: Physical activity can be a fun and enjoyable way for children to spend their time. By staying active during the school holidays, children can try new activities and find new interests that they enjoy.

There are many ways to encourage children to stay active during the school holidays. Some examples include enrolling them in sports camps or classes, planning a family hike or bike ride, or simply encouraging them to play outside. With the right support and encouragement, children can continue to stay active and healthy even when they’re not in school.

FREE Maths Week resource for primary schools

Maths is essential for everyday life.

From shopping to cooking to budgeting to commuting to DIY to time management to driving to holiday planning to problem solving to exercising; maths crops up everywhere and is often a required skill in the workplace.

But maths gets a bad rap. In fact, being negative about maths seems to be culturally acceptable in the Attitude to Maths

Think about the number of times you’ve heard someone say or even boast about being no good at maths.

But numbers are a powerful tool. Being competent and confident in maths helps you understand the world and is a skill that helps you throughout life.

And so, it’s vital we work to change these negative attitudes.

Which is at the heart of why Maths Week England exists.

Maths Week England 2022 is taking place 14th – 18th November, here we run through what it is and how your primary school can get involved.

 

What is Maths Week England?

Launched in 2019, the goal of Maths Week England is to ensure that no child misses out on the opportunities that being a confident competent mathematician can bring. Founder of Maths Week England Andrew Jeffrey [link https://mathsweekengland.co.uk/?page_id=4129 ] noticed a negativity surrounding maths amongst pupils.

“For some, the pressure of an over-crowded curriculum means that mathematics seems to them to be a painful and meaningless waste of time, with only the threat of not getting a GCSE pass keeping them going. I don’t believe any child deserves to feel this way.

“I believe we as teachers can change this perception, and help build a nation of confident mathematicians, who both use and enjoy mathematics. Therefore Maths Week England exists.

“I hope you will join me and help change the conversation around mathematics across the nation.”

If you want to be a part of bringing about that change, here’s how your school can get involved.

 

FREE Maths on the Move resource

We need to get pupils excited about maths. And this means we need to make it fun.

Combining maths and movement is one way you can do just that.

Our FREE Maths on the Move resource designed for Maths Week England uses physically active learning to engage children and make concepts easier to understand.

We know it works because numerous studies prove physically active learning enhances brain function, improves focus, facilitates understanding, increases confidence and reduces anxiety. Plus, we continually measure the impact of our MOTM programme, with our 2021-2022 report revealing:

  • 95% of children taking part in MOTM showed a total increase from pre to post lesson scores
  • 5% of children reported improved confidence in maths as a result of taking part in MOTM

Using the free downloadable resource, you can get children up out of their chairs, away from their desks and excited about maths.

The resource is designed by teachers, in line with the national curriculum and tailored to Years 1 – 6.

Pupils need to answer maths questions covering key concepts, run to locate their answers on an activity card, and jot down the corresponding letter to break the code!

All you need to do is print out the activity cards, cut them up, spread them around the hall, playground or field, and give each child or team a challenge sheet.

Not only will the challenge make for a memorable Maths Week, it’ll also help inspire a joy of maths in children.

And a bonus is that it contributes to the 60 minutes of daily physical activity recommended for children.

Plus, the activity cards can be used again and again to create new challenges.

To download your free resource, head over here. CODEBREAKER

 

Let’s work together to make maths fun and accessible so that every child can develop and find joy in this essential skill that improves life chances and makes the everyday that bit easier.

Physically active learning 8 reasons why children benefit from Physically Active Learning | Aspire Sports (aspire-sports.co.uk) is all the rage at the moment, and rightly so. A growing body of academic research proves that brain function is enhanced through physical activity. And is there a teacher in the world who doesn’t want their pupils’ brains functioning as well as possible?

The Maths on the Move programme has been running since 2015 and it has not only been popular with children and teachers, but the data has shown that it works. So, knowing that we were onto a good thing, we’ve been busy behind the scenes developing English on the Move 

 

What is English on the Move? 

English on the Move is a physically active learning programme which combines physical activity with spelling, punctuation and grammar teaching, aligned to the National Curriculum. 

Through team games, plenty of movement and well-paced tasks, pupils focus on one learning outcome per lesson, reinforcing and practising what they have learnt in their usual English lessons. 

English on the Move lessons are taught by trained educators, are suitable for all abilities and can be tailored to meet the needs of your pupils. 

The impact of English on the Move is constantly measured and shared via an online platform and regular reports.

Why choose English on the Move? 

SPaG can be confusing for pupils. The wide range of complex-sounding terminology can be intimidating; the number of rules (and their exceptions) can be overwhelming; and at times trying to learn it all can be downright boring. 

English on the Move offers a chance to break down some of these barriers by taking the same key concepts to a new environment, with a different way of learning. 

Although it’s still new, data from trials is extremely positive: 

98.7% of pupils said they would like to do EOTM again. 

98.3% of children felt that EOTM had helped them with SPaG

Pre- and post-programme test scores showed that 95.6% of children had improved in SPaG after taking part in EOTM. 

What do teachers and pupils think of English on the Move? 

  • There’s something for everyone in it. Everyone likes it and it’s great for teamwork and working together. Year 5 pupil
  • We absolutely love English on the Move. We’ve aligned it to our spelling, punctuation and grammar curriculum and it allows children to learn those things in a really fun and different way. Headteacher
  • When I’m teaching spellings, the children find it really difficult whereas English on the Move allows them to do a difficult concept but in a fun, physically active environment and it takes away the fear of spellings, which is really important to me. Year 5 Teacher

Learning maths whilst being physically active. It definitely sounds like fun, but does it really work? The short answer is yes, it does. A six-week study conducted by academics at Leeds Beckett University has concluded that the Maths on the Move (MOTM) programme both improves maths attainment and increases physical activity levels.  

 

The study, conducted prior to lockdown at the end of 2019, compared outcomes for children taking part in a MOTM programme against control groups who continued with traditional classroom-style maths lessons. All MOTM sessions were delivered by experienced Aspire-trained educators.

 

Children wore accelerometers during the school day to measure their physical activity.

 

This enabled researchers to find out how MOTM affected children’s chances of meeting the in-school activity target of 30 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per day. 

 

Compared to the control group:

 

  • 28% more children achieved the recommended physical activity levels in a school day.
  • On average children secured an additional 5 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity and 5.7 minutes of light physical activity.
  • There was a reduction of 9.5 minutes of inactive time. 

 

Even prior to lockdown, less than half of children were achieving the Chief Medical Officer’s recommendations around physical activity and the figure has worsened throughout the pandemic. The results of this study show that physically active learning can help to fix this problem. 

 

So, we can increase activity, but what about maths performance? 

 

Researchers measured maths performance using tests before and at the end of the programme. Maths attainment test performance significantly improved over time for children on the MOTM programme when compared to the control groups. 

 

The scores for children on the MOTM programme increased from a baseline average score of 11.3/25 (45.2%) to 18.1/25 (72.4%). The scores for the control groups increased from 10.1/25 (40.4%) to 11/25 (44%) over the same period of time.

 

These findings support our own year-long study across the academic year 2019 – 2020, where

  • 93% of children demonstrated an improvement in maths performance 
  • 80% of children also reported an increase in confidence relating to maths.

 

You can read more about that study here: MOTM 

Researchers found that MOTM was an overwhelmingly positive experience for schools. 

 

Here’s what some of the children and their teachers had to say: 

 

I feel excited and happy, I feel this because we get to do fun activities and learn about Maths.” – Aisha, Year 5 

I like sports but … I also like Maths a bit… I like them all together and it’s really fun because you … challenge each other– Sana, Year 5

If Maths on the Move is part of your curriculum, it would have an impact on the general enjoyment of Maths” – Shannon, Teacher

“In terms of their attitudes towards learning, they seem more resilient and a lot more confident, and they don’t have any tears if they can’t answer any of the questions. They just persevere with it.” – Zuri, Teacher

 

Why do we need physically active learning? 

 

Pandemic or no pandemic, all schools face the dual challenges of keeping children healthy through physical activity and ensuring their academic success. 

 

Structured, active learning programmes enable teachers to cut the time children are expected to sit at a desk whilst still covering the academic curriculum.

 

Children respond positively to an active learning environment. It can boost confidence and improve academic performance.

 

Physical activity in school can be integrated into daily routines rather than positioned as an optional extra.

 

Why is Maths on the Move a good choice? 

 

  • Aspire has been delivering physically active learning programmes since 2010 and MOTM for five years. It’s a well-developed programme that is proven to really work. 

 

  • The programme has been designed to provide total flexibility to schools. It is suitable for all abilities and can be tailored to suit your pupils’ individual requirements. 

 

  • MOTM has been designed to meet the funding criteria laid out by both the PE and Sports Premium, and the Pupil Premium.

 

What’s next? 

 

Following the success of MOTM, Aspire, MOTM programme creators, are now developing English on the Move. We expect that this programme will be available in schools from January 2022.

Background

The class was a mixed age class of 10 Year 1 (5-6-year olds) and 16 Year 2 (6-7 year olds) children. The children have a wide range of abilities from those working above age related expectations to those working below. There were 12 children for whom English was an additional language and 3 children who had specific SEND needs.

Almost 50% of the class were EAL (English as an Additional Language) children. Some were confident English speakers, but the majority were still grasping the English language or had recently arrived in the country with little or no English. There was also a large percentage of the class who had Speech and Language issues and/or processing issues. A couple of the children had low self-esteem and confidence issues which resulted in them being reluctant to try new activities or make mistakes.

What we did

The children took park in weekly movement therapy sessions that included Yoga, Tai Chi, breath work and games with a specific mental or emotional objective targeted. The sessions were age appropriate and included motivating resources such as cuddly toys, parachutes and puppets.

Outcome

There was a noticeable improvement over the course of the year for the whole class in terms of their concentration and focus skills. At the end of each session, the children were calmer and more focused. The careful and intentional movements involved in each session had improved the children’s balance and coordination skills. This was evident from observing the children within PE sessions each week. The EAL and SEND children were able to access the content of each session through observing and copying movements and as a result their confidence and communication skills were developed. The children with low-esteem glowed with pride at the end of a session particularly when they had held a new pose or carried out a sequence successfully.

Impact

The children’s concentration and listening skills improved over the course of the year. This meant that they were able to concentrate more fully on lessons. The children enjoyed each session and the practical nature of the activities meant that all the children were able to participate and feel included regardless of their academic ability.

Staff all noted how calm and focused the children were at the end of each session which is quite an achievement on a Friday afternoon!

Next Steps:

The sessions will continue every week for each class. There is potential for teaching staff to apply some of techniques into everyday class routines to support wellbeing across the school and those with SEMH needs.

The COVID-19 crisis has had an impact on virtually every aspect of our lives.

For children, all at once, they were unable to go to school, see their friends or, for a long time, spend more than 1 hour per day outdoors. A concerning consequence of these necessary restrictions has been the drastic drop in children’s activity levels.

In fact, it dropped so low that just 19% of children were meeting the recommended 1 hour of physical activity per day.

Meaning?

Many have been deprived of the benefits on physical and mental health associated with sports and physical activity at a time when those benefits were needed most.

We know that you care about your pupils’ health – we do too.

 What we can do

With schools reopening amid a global pandemic, you have the monumental responsibility of nurturing your pupils’ development with an array of restrictions in society to ensure safety.

Government have set out guidelines for the safe delivery of high-quality PE using the PE and Sport Premium.

But, with so many new strategies to consider across the board, it will be challenging to provide physical education to the standard your pupils so desperately need.

This is where PE Curriculum Support (PECS) [link to website page] comes in.

What is PECS?

 

The PECS programme is an effective, sustainable investment for your PE and Sport Premium. It is more than a mere 1-day training course or standalone activity – instead, it takes a holistic approach to embed PE across your entire school.

PECS provides high-quality learning being the only programme of its kind recognised by the Association for Physical Education Professional Development Board. Primarily a mentoring process, PECS offers regular and ongoing support to empower teachers to raise physical education and activity levels in a way that lasts.

We have a proven record of helping schools drastically improve:

• Planning
• Progress tracking
• Reporting
• Teacher confidence
• Staff subject knowledge

 

With our help, your teaching staff will get professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils.

Everything we do is underpinned by robust data and our approach is constantly evolving to meet the demands of the UK’s primary schools.
With this in mind, we’ve recently made some adaptations to PECS [link to video] to comply with government guidelines, maintain safe delivery and ensure your school’s PE doesn’t suffer from the fall-out of COVID-19.

Let us help you embed physical activity across your school.

Government guidelines for COVID-19 safety

We’ve adapted our approach into a robust, safe methodology in order to support you in meeting government guidelines for high-quality physical education.

What practical steps have we taken?

 

Step #1

Teachers now have the option to do their initial meeting with their PECS mentor online.

Step #2

PECS folders will be posted out to schools in advance of the initial meeting.

Step #3

Only the teacher will handle the PECS folder.

Step #4

Updated online PECS portal for mentors to access additional features.

Step #5

Risk assessments in line with school policies are created in advance.

 

So, whether it’s delivering from a safe zone or supporting the teacher at a distance, your PECS mentor will provide the guidance needed to support your pupils learning with safe activities personalised to your school.

Your teachers are highly skilled experts in the classroom. The PECS programme helps them transfer those skills into the PE environment in a safe, sustainable way. Let us help your staff teach PE confidently and effectively to improve outcomes for pupils and, crucially, keep everyone safe.

Navigating a new school year, tough enough at the best of times and this is not the best of times.

 

Lockdown saw teachers transform the way they teach, going above and beyond for their pupils. Yet the implications of four months without face-to-face learning are inescapable.

 

  • Children on average have spent 5 hours a day doing schoolwork during lockdown.

 

  • Only 17% have put in more than four hours a day.

 

  • Over two million have done no schoolwork, or less than an hour a day.

 

When you think that a typical school day is between six and seven hours, combine this with the fact that lockdown lasted for months, the reality hits of just how much learning time has been lost.

 

With the switch to home learning comes the risk of widening the attainment gap, exacerbating existing inequalities as access to resources, home set-up and level of family support all have a role to play in children’s home learning experience.

 

So, the question is now, what can be done to ensure this impact is not felt long-term?

 

 

What the government is doing:

 

The government has announced a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

 

And with schools having flexibility with the funding, its use can be tailored to the school’s most pressing needs.

 

A guide for schools has been published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), providing evidence-based approaches that effectively support pupils when it comes to the task of catching up.

 

 

What TLE are doing:

 

With each new guideline and each new piece of advice, TLE have made sure to ask:

 

How can we adapt, change and evolve to support schools, teachers and pupils?

 

The threat of lifelong implications on children’s educational development demands readily available, evidence-based programmes of support.

 

And it just so happens we have one.

 

A suggested use of the catch-up premium is intervention programmes that meet a specific need, can be delivered to small groups, include regular sessions maintained

over a sustained period, are carefully timetabled and allow for the monitoring of pupil progress.

 

Turns out our newly refreshed Maths on the Move (MOTM) [link to animation video] programme checks all of these boxes.

 

Autumn term kicks off with educators delivering a six-week programme of study focusing on mental maths covering several objectives from the national curriculum. So, there’s your well-targeted, regular sessions over a sustained period of time covered.

 

Experienced educators, learning materials and an online platform are all part of the MOTM MOTM website page programme with each child receiving a termly progress report. Monitoring of pupils’ progress: check. Accountability and justification for Ofsted: check and check.

 

We’ve been communicating with our schools over the past few weeks to discuss timetables and create risk assessments which are specific to your setting and in line with your policies. There’s that required careful timetabling.

 

 

What we can do together:

 

Deliver MOTM in your school.

 

Your safety, pupils’ safety and our team’s safety is top priority. So, what adjustments have we made?

 

Resources required for each lesson are reduced to only those that are essential. Meaning? Sessions can take place outside where possible. We have faith in the British weather (we think!)

 

Each child will also be given a personal whiteboard and pen in order to limit the sharing of resources (and the debates over who gets to write…).

 

As so frequently highlighted during lockdown (as well as the irony of it), the months we were to stay apart were months in which we came together (figuratively speaking) to support one another.

 

Lockdown may be ending, but to prevent long-term consequences, this unity needs to continue.
