We have also introduced "heartline" sessions in PE and other times during curriculum hours. These are short bursts of activity done in the playground. Pupils move from one station to another for each activity. When it is time for them to move on to another activity, the teacher blows a whistle.
Next term, we are going to institute a lunchtime "huff and puff" session.
With pound;1,000 from the Children's Fund, we bought stilts, bats and balls and yo-yos.
Each child pays pound;1 for a key and, in exchange, they get a piece of equipment to use in the playground for their own games. They get the key back at the end of the session when they return the piece of equipment.
