Full of Beans
CHILDREN’S FITNESS & SPORTS COACHING
What makes health related exercise different?
Health Related Exercise is physical activity associated with health enhancement. Delivery through active participation includes the teaching of knowledge, understanding, physical competence and behavioural skills, and the creation of positive attitudes and confidence associated with current and lifetime participation in physical activity. For children the link between activity levels and health appear stronger than between fitness and health. Every child can benefit from being active but not every child can reach a high level of fitness.
What outcomes could you expect?
All classes will be well planned and structured, effectively delivered and evaluated and we would expect the following health-related outcomes for young people:-
• have learned the skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities
• participate regularly in physical activity
• understand the implications of being involved in physical activity
• values physical activity and its contribution to a healthier lifestyle
What value would a Full of Beans Class add?
Our classes meet the Physical Development goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage and we have links with the National Curriculum for Physical Education. Classes will also add towards your Healthy Schools Status.
Also, the Department of Children also aimed for 85% of children to have access to two hours per week of high quality PE and school sport by 2008. This adds pressure for schools to increase the time children take part in physical activity – Full of Beans can fill this gap.
We are fully on board with the “Every Child Matters” documentation as well as the Healthy Schools Campaign and the School Food Trust. We have established working links with the Health and well-being teams at the PCT as well as the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences at John Mores University.
From September 2008, all child care providers will be measured by OFSTED against Physical Development Goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage, goals are:-
“The physical development of babies and young children must be encouraged through the provision of opportunities for them to be active and interactive and to improve their skills of co-ordination, control, manipulation and movement. They must be supported in developing an understanding of the importance of physical activity and making healthy choices in relation to food.”
We aim to be more than instructors that comes into a school or nursery, deliver a class then rush out.
We are also constantly developing and improving the programme, building relationships with parents, carers, schools and nurseries to deliver high quality, flexible classes to suit individual needs. We are willing to help schools deliver any health related subject if required.
