Lever FOUR: Skills for learning

Try these warm ups at the start of the day and as mid-lesson brain breaks

What it's all about?

Warm-ups and action songs do a lot of good things to our body and help improve concentration.

For starters they get us out of our seats, and moving. This raises our heart rate, gets the blood pulsing around our bodies and we breathe in more oxygen. As well as having fun it leads to better alertness and reduced stress so ultimately we'll learn more effectively.

The song Throw, catch is a beautiful melody and you can add actions, choreography and harmonies - a perfect combination!
