AITC SUPPORT SUPER MOVERS INITIATIVE

18 January 2018

AITC are supporting the Super Movers initiative.

Albion in the Community is supporting a new initiative from the Premier League and the BBC aimed at encouraging school children to be more active during the school day.

Super Movers will bring stars from the football and television worlds together in fun, easy to follow, educational videos which will capture children's imagination and help teachers to get them moving throughout the day with a series of routines and activities.

There will be an abundance of resources on the Super Movers website, providing teachers with video content-led ideas and simple solutions to help children learn while they move - all free, fun, linked to the UK curriculum and easy to use in the classroom with no extra equipment required.

Super Movers will also encourage families to live active, healthy lifestyles and can be used at home, with a range of videos and games designed to get children and grown-ups moving together in their living rooms, so parents as well as teachers can join in the fun.

AITC, which has worked with 129 schools across Sussex in the last year, will now be encouraging teachers to get involved with Super Movers. AITC already uses an active learning approach to its cross curricular lessons, with pupils encouraged to move around the classroom to engage in interactive football-themed activities.
 
Today sees schools throughout the UK join together for a live Super Movers lesson and AITC and Brighton & Hove Albion mascot Gully will be at Carden Primary School in Brighton this afternoon to join in the fun.

The special live lesson will focus on fun, active maths for seven to nine-year-olds and showcase some of the Super Movers resources designed to help energise the country’s classrooms.

Liam Rosenior, one of AITC’s three official ambassadors, was pleased to see the charity getting involved with the new initiative.

He said, “It is great to see people coming up with such innovative news ways of
engaging young people in their lessons and encouraging them to be more active, and as one of the charity ambassadors, I am delighted to see AITC supporting Super Movers.”
