One morning, we were thinking: how can we encourage our class to be more active? We decided we would make “Active Sticks”. What we do is every morning we take a lollipop stick from our Active Bucket. These sticks have small exercises on them that get pupils moving, but are safe enough to do in the classroom. We go around the classroom, letting different students every day have a turn at picking out a stick. We aim to do 3 sticks every morning, but usually, the class persuade us to pick “just one more”. It is a fun and easy way to get everyone moving. This puts everyone in a great mood for the day. We would definitely recommend this small activity, as it only takes five minutes but has a much longer lasting positive effect!
