Many children will achieve the majority of their recommended amount of physical activity whilst at school. So, whilst they are at home, we want to support you to be able to keep them physically active (which will keep their brains active too!). Whether you are a teacher, parent or carer, we hope these resources will help you to keep your children active from the comfort of their own home.
If you and your children are taking part in any of the activities listed, we would love to hear how you are getting on! Simply share your photos and videos and tag the Active Suffolk Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Remember to use the following hashtags:
