Wake & Shake

Wake & Shake is a dance programme we run every morning before school from 8:50am to 8:55am. It is an easy way introduce daily activity into our school with it engaging all children and adults of all ages to join in with our fun and lively dance routines. This will ensure the children approach their classwork re-energised and in a state of readiness to learn.

 

Mr Bailey & Mr Roberts will lead the Wake & Shake routines on the school ramp with 2 sports leaders supporting them each day in teaching the whole school how to do the easy but fun routines.

Impact 

  • Enjoyment of school life and a sense of well-being (staff too!)
  • Improved self-esteem impacting on other curriculum areas: ‘success breeds success’
  • Improved co-ordination (gross motor skills then impacting on fine motor skills)
  • Improved rhythm and timing ( this has helped with music and dance lessons)
  • Improved concentration and application to tasks immediately after the brief exercise session
  • Increased stamina
  • Improved behaviour 
  • Improved hydration (children get thirsty and WANT to drink more)
