Laddsworth Primary School recognises the importance of movement in the classroom, to release excess energy and refocus attention. This is especially important considering the safety constraints that have been introduced to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in schools. Children have to wear masks, adhere to social distancing and are not able to run around at break or play sport in the afternoons.
Each class teacher periodically does their own fun physical activity during class time. The children enjoy these ‘brain breaks’ tremendously and it helps to improve morale, for both learners and teachers.
