There’s no teacher preparation required. Simply watch, join in, have fun, get fit and learn!
“Vigorous exercise BEFORE learning improves student memory, mood and behaviour, and helps create a heightened state of attention. Exercise is the single most powerful tool you have to optimise your brain function and improve learning. To keep our brains at peak performance, our bodies need to work hard.” – John Ratey, MD, author of SPARK
The fun fitness videos on 5-a-day TV are also available with spoken Modern Foreign Language voiceovers and on-screen translations in French, Spanish and Welsh. 5-a-day TV is an amazing cross-curricular PE/MFL resource for Key Stage 1 and 2. Now, with just the touch of a button, your class can have fun, get fit, and learn a language!
5-a-day TV includes an online inter-school competition, the 5-a-day Pentathlon. A multi-skills sports contest that can be performed in a standard PE lesson. Pupils can use their ICT and numeracy skills to enter data online and track their progress throughout the year. They can then compete with other 5-a-day schools locally, nationally and internationally!
