Before the lesson begins we have provided a short Pre-Lesson Guidance Video for all of the educators to watch prior to delivering a lesson. The video is packed with information on today's subject, lesson resources, short videos on how to set up and play games.


Each lesson begins with the children watching a short video where we meet our friend Sophia who introduces us to the week’s topic. This video is to be watched before the session begins and the key points that the video talks about can be used by the educator to revert back to while teaching the days topic.


Each lesson has been designed for children to work either on their own or in small groups. We find that circle time discussions are a great way to generate ideas and share knowledge whilst completing our worksheets or reverting back to the lesson video.


Time to get active! Each session comprises of 1-2 physically active tasks to further topic knowledge and understanding. These go hand in hand with the tasks on our worksheets and children must play the games to complete their worksheets. The games have been chosen and designed to be simple to set up, interactive and all inclusive and most of all great fun for the children to play while learning. Each game has different variations to challenge all levels of ability.


Your resources for each lesson include your lesson plan, activity cards to be collected during the main games and high quality, interactive worksheets to be used by children either on their own or in small groups. These are designed with the physically active games in mind and to extend and record learning.


Each programme comes with an individual Pre and Post questionnaire to assess learning and produce impact data reports. These are created using our analysis program that can be found on your online portal.
