From a balanced diet to running challenges, pupils at Leamington Primary School have been having fun learning about how to lead a healthy lifestyle through our Premier League Primary Stars programme.

Our Premier League Primary Stars programme is designed to inspire children both inside and outside of the classroom. We work with schools to support pupils both academically and practically across a range of subjects as well as provide sessions and workshops that help children with life learning. Throughout each term we bring flexible activity ideas, worksheets, lesson plans, assemblies and exclusive videos that helps to engage and motivate the children.

As part of our Premier League Primary Stars programme we have been delivering healthy lifestyle days for schools like Leamington Primary School. The children have looked at the different food groups, how to get their 5 fruit and vegetables a day in and have been building their own ‘healthy food plates’ using their new knowledge on balanced diets. We also used football players as a platform to learn about foods in different cultures and countries.

Alongside nutritional learning we also set the school their very own lunch time challenge. For this the children helped us figure out the distance from their school to The City Ground (Nottingham Forest home football ground) which came to a total of 25km. Using this, we set a challenge for the KS2 pupils to collectively run this distance during their lunchtime. Not only did they reach The City Ground, but with a massive 523km covered the pupils could have reached Stade Pierre Mauroy which is the stadium of Lille OSC in France!

It was great to see the school having such fun whilst completing such an extraordinary achievement, we can’t wait to hear how the children use their knowledge about health and nutrition to challenge their own families to lead healthier lifestyles.
