Schools encouraged to 'Move it!'

BBC Radio Oxford is preparing to launch a new campaign this spring called Move It!

The aim of the campaign is to increase physical activity across the county and to promote the many health benefits that can be had from fitting more movement into our days. 

As part of the campaign BBC Oxford are inviting Oxfordshire school children to take part in a fun dance project.  They are encouraging as many children as possible to learn a dance specially choreographed to ‘Move Your Hair’ from the recent Trolls movie.  The dance has been designed for primary aged children but children of all ages and abilities are welcome to take part.

This is not a competition; it’s about having fun and motivating children to become more active.  As such it dove-tails very nicely with our ongoing ambition to support increased physical activity levels for ALL of our children.

Children can learn and practice the routine as part of their curriculum PE lesson or during an extra-curricular club.  They could even practice the dance with friends at home.

Schools can access the instructional video here: https://myshare.box.com/s/wu0dy0usns3titpumw1z8zf8kakttvhm.
