Move & Learn Project
Our six-week Move & Learn project combines physical activity and classroom lessons to teach children the importance of active lifestyles, nutrition and hydration.
About the Move & Learn Project
Underpinned by the unique Joy of Moving methodology, the Move & Learn project is aimed at inspiring children of 9-10 years old of all abilities to move through play. We know that it’s important to get this age range moving, as data from Sport England shows that only 22% of children from Year groups 5 – 6 are active every day. The Move & Learn project has been developed in partnership with the English Football League Trust (EFL Trust) and delivered with support from the Scottish Professional Football League Trust (SPFLT) and the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) and the Community Club Organisations across the UK and Ireland.
Taking part in the six-week course gives each child nine hours of learning through fun games and exercises inspired by the Joy of Moving methodology. During the Move & Learn project, children learn the importance of physical activity, the connection between the body & mind, meal planning, hydration and balanced diets based on the Eatwell Guide.
