Wake Up Shake Up

The children have been introduced to Wake and Shake Up. The benefits of this excercise are:

  • Enjoyment of school life and a sense of well-being (for staff too!).
  • Improved self-esteem impacting on other curriculum areas; 'success breeds success'.
  • Improved co-ordination (gross motor skills then impactin on fine motor skills).
  • Improved rhythm and timing (this has helped with music and dance lessons).
  • Improved concentration and application to tasks immediately after the brief excercise session.
  • Improved stamina.
  • Improved behaviour ("when done at the end of lunchtime, playground squabbles are forgotten and afternoon class is much better").
  • Improved hydration (children get thirsty and want to drink more).
