    Digital resources to keep children active

    With many children’s exercise levels having fallen during the Coronavirus pandemic, it is more important than ever to keep children active. Guidance from the Chief Medical Officer suggests children should be active for an average of 60 minutes a day, across the week. The activities should make children breathe faster and feel warmer.

    We’ve gathered together some digital resources and links to activities for use in school or at home.
