What is this Strategy About?
Physically active breaks are energising brain boosters that increase blood flow to the brain, increasing engagement, focus and concentration. Use these 5-minute breaks between activities or lessons (at least once an hour) to get your pupils moving and see the impact.
Why are Physically Active Breaks Important?Students can get easily distracted during the school day, but regular, short breaks can help them to focus. This will break up their day and let them refocus before moving onto the next task. This can reduce stress, frustration, distraction and fatigue in students.
Use Twinkl Move resources to further support your physically active breaks.
