A-life is a leading provider of Healthy Living Workshops and Fun Fitness sessions for primary schools. We can help with your healthy schools week, science week or curriculum topics by visiting your school with our unique programme of hands-on, interactive activities that are accessible for all ages and abilities and have been carefully prepared to meet many objectives set out in the Science, PE and PSHE curriculum.

With over 12 years’ experience, we have taught more than 500,000 children in over 750 schools and consistently receive outstanding feedback from staff and pupils alike.

Our workshops include:

• Hands-on Healthy Workshop – a 1 hour hands-on session for up to 60 pupils (Nur-Yr 6) on the topic of the Human Body and keeping healthy. In small groups, children head off to one of the action-packed activity stations, where they will:
- Piece together the human body, exploring the function of each organ
- Use puzzles to explore different fruits and vegetables and getting 5 a day
- Explore how many grams of sugar and salt are in some favourite drinks and snacks
- Watch a short DVD to discover new ways of keeping fit and active
- Play different games that show where food comes from, how food grows and foods from around the world
- Use maths to shop to a budget
- Put on a fat belt and work out how heavy it is
- Investigate the nutritional values of different foods
- Use life-like foods to discover what a balanced diet is all about
- Simulate the effects of drinking too much alcohol, testing its effect on our balance and ability to walk (Year 5 upwards. Always supervised by an adult.)
- Follow directions around a map to different takeaways
- Check out their tooth brushing technique and see how their personal hygiene is
- Find out how much sleep they need and whether they are getting it
- Sort household items into ‘safe’ and ‘unsafe’ bin
…And LOADS more!
The children visit the different stations in their teams, the activities are all age appropriate and differentiated for the age groups. The session is completed by a 10 minute talk from the coach to round up the learning.

• Fun Fitness Sessions - designed to give all pupils a full body workout at the same time as reinforcing the key messages of keeping healthy from the hands-on workshop. We provide a fun-packed, non-stop, fast-paced session that motivates pupils to understand that keeping active is a vital part of staying healthy and can be a lot of fun. (Nur-Yr 6)

• Alcohol & Drug Awareness Workshop – a safe environment for pupils to begin considering this sensitive subject, which many schools and families find difficult to tackle. Our experienced coaches, with hands-on activities and anecdotal stories, will provide a comfortable and relaxed space in which to explore the issues surrounding drugs and alcohol, as well as the associated issues of peer pressure and knowing how to make informed, sensible decisions. (Yr 5-8 only)

To embed the learning further and achieve maximum impact, we also offer:
• Staff Training
• Parent Sessions
• Online 7-day Healthy Challenge
