Fitness Friday

At Gill Blowers we encourage children to develop their physical skills every day. We have extended our celebration of physical skills through having a dedicated day for exercise; Fitness Friday. Physical activity has countless health benefits for children. Not only does exercise improve a child’s overall health and fitness, but it can also help to improve their mental health and cognitive development as well.

Here are some of the key benefits of physical activity for children:

  • Builds confidence and improves social skills
  • Gives children the opportunity to learn new skills and teaches them important life skills
  • Helps to relieve stress and maintain mental and emotional wellbeing
  • Enhances concentration and learning, which increases productivity and success
  • Improves sleep and energy levels
  • Strengthens muscles and bones
  • Helps to develop coordination
  • Makes children feel good and elevates their mood
  • Inspires positivity and encourages tolerance

Improves overall health and fitness and helps children maintain a healthy weight to prevent childhood obesity
