Change4Life launches Our Healthy Year toolkits for primary schools

Keep Reception and Year 6 pupils healthy this year and have fun with the new Change4Life Our Healthy Year activities

The Our Healthy Year toolkits are designed to build healthy habits in children during the school years in which they are weighed and measured as part of the National Child Measurement Programme.

The activities will help schools to run a whole year of fun, healthy curriculum-linked activity and they’ll also support parents who are looking for ideas to help live healthier lives.

The toolkits include curriculum-linked activity ideas, a classroom poster, stickers and inspiration for whole-school activities. Supporting resources are available to download online, including take-home activities for children and parents.

The resources have been developed with educational experts to help primary teachers build healthy activity into their existing lessons and everyday routines. The activities are fun, easy and flexible enough to use over a whole year, term, month or week of healthy activity and include direct links to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, Early Learning Goals and the Year 6 Literacy and Maths curricula.

Look out for toolkits which are arriving in primary schools now with the School Fruit and Veg Scheme. Schools can get more information about the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme on the NHS choices website here and apply by downloading the School Fruit and Veg Scheme factfile.
