Primary Schools dance in Step
Two primary schools have just taken delivery of Just for Schools (JFS) dance mat packages from fitnessgaming. Their JFS package came with both the latest dance game and also the optional Primary Steps Maths and Phonics active learning games. These use dance mats as controllers to choose answers to multiple choice maths and phonics questions.
St Georges and St Giles CoE Primary School in Staffordshire and Tollbar Primary School near Doncaster both added the optional Primary Steps games to the standard JFS package to get both their pupils brains and bodies active.
The JFS package gets the pupils active without them knowing it, and is very suitable for primary school budgets. They contribute to curriculum time PE, Extended Schools clubs, Healthy Schools active hours and towards the PESSYP active hours.
Duncan Black of fitnessgaming commented "the combination of fun, fitness and serious core curriculum active learning shows the JFS package to be the most flexible and value for money dance package for primary schools. There is no better time to get kids physically and mentally active than right at the start of their school lives as the benefits will be with them forever."
