The S4K programme for the foundation stage begins at the age of 18 months in nurseries and continues until reception. The programme is based on our S4K ActivKids child-centric development pathway that focuses on three key areas: Locomotor Skills, Stability and Object Control. Children learn imaginative exercise, using storytelling and play to inspire fitness, health and physical development. Each 6-week PE plan includes content that promotes key learning for Early Years Framework outcomes.
The S4K ActivKids programme has sixteen different topics that schools can choose from:
|Animal Magic||Fairy Tales||Transport||Under the Sea
|Jobs We Do||Family||TV Stars||On the Farm
Each topic has three stories, with each story inspiring child centric, curriculum linked learning. Classes are for 45 minutes and always include a confidence building introduction, a pulse raising activity; stability, object control and locomotor drills and games as well as obstacle challenges and a summary of the key learnings.
The S4K ActivKids programme is also a fantastic Early Years resource for all teaching staff, providing fun and innovative exercises that are designed to encourage children to explore movement through natural exercise in a highly energetic and engaging environment.
