Change4Life and Disney look to get young people moving with 10 Minute Shake Up

Change4Life and Disney have today teamed up to launch '10 Minute Shake Up' to encourage young people to undertake their recommended daily 60 minutes of physical activity.

Change4Life and Disney have today (2 July) teamed up to launch '10 Minute Shake Up' to encourage young people to undertake their recommended daily 60 minutes of physical activity.

The 10 Minute Shake Up will see young people choose one of four fun Disney teams and enjoy a variety of different games and activities over the school holidays. The four Disney teams are: Big Hero 6, Frozen, Monsters and Toy Story.

As part of the exciting initiative, schools will receive a pack with innovative ideas to support teachers in delivering Key Stage 1 and 2 physical education curricula by encouraging pupils to have fun running, jumping, throwing, catching and dancing.

In addition, there is a 'team up to shake up' game. This is a fun and easy way to get pupils moving throughout the day both inside and outside the classroom. Each kit will contain an engaging wall chart with spinner, activity cards, stickers and a teacher resource guide.

To inspire young people to get moving, a special 10 Minute Shake Up video routine starring a mystery TV personality has been launched.

Teachers can also register for new curriculum-linked resources within the Change4Life School Zone. The resources are designed to support the Design and Technology, English and Maths curricula, as well as teach healthy eating.
