Physical Activity is the promotion and engagement of exercise and movement in addition to the 60 minute per week timetabled curriculum subject of Physical Education. Presentation Primary Warrenmount actively promotes the message that children require 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. In Warrenmount we have been extremely busy as we have engaged in a wide variety of different programmes, ideas and initiatives which have inspired the children to become more active.

Warrenmount promotes the full range of fundamental movement skills during break times and pupils are encouraged to run, play and to do 'talking as you’re walking'. We have two daily playground breaks and our school yard is zoned and marked to allow children to engage in a variety of different activities. Our school has playground leaders who set up activities and sports equipment during break times for others to use.


All pupils engage in an extended classroom based physical activity break on wet days and short physical activity breaks during the day (Go Noodle, Brain Gyms, Bizzy Breaks etc.)


Our school has agreed an Active School Flag slogan which is ___________________________


Our school incorporates physical activity into school calendar events as we hold different seasonal activities and events which can be viewed in detail below.


Finally all classes participated in a non-competitive running initiative called 'Run Around Europe' this year that lasted a number of weeks, while the older girls skipped their away to the top of lots of different mountains!!

Active Breaks in the Classroom/ Rainy Day Breaks

In Warrenmount we always make sure to get our 60 minutes of exercise a day. Sometimes when the weather is not good we have to stay indoors. We also take breaks between classes to help our brains to work to their optimum. We do activities like Go Noodle, workout exercises and brain breaks to help keep our brains active!

Go Noodle

Go Noodle helps us with our coordination, body awareness and gross motor skills. One of our favourite guided dance is 'Gummy Bear Song' which is a big hit in the infant classes. The fresh start fitness exercise videos are great to help us use all our muscles and even the children in Early Start have been seen to be squatting in the mornings and afternoons laughing
You can follow our favourite videos at home too by just clicking on the videos below!

Exercise Workouts

For variation we also like to do a workout with different and challenging exercises. Every workout session is different as it depends what exercises are pulled out from the cup and for how long or how many seconds they last. It is great fun as we never know what we are going to end up doing!
