Option 1: Healthy workshop
These sessions are very different at different schools. Your A-life coach usually sets up the Healthy workshop (Year 5/6 level) for parents to investigate and take part in some of the hands-on healthy activities. The coach will then talk to the parents as a group about packed lunches and/or any subject of your choice, and finish off with a questions and answers session. Schools normally run these sessions after school and often the children (and sometimes younger siblings) come along to enjoy the resources as well.
Option 2: Circuits fitness session
Your A-life coach will prepare a mini version of the children’s fitness session to get the parents hot and sweaty!
(Both of these sessions are flexible – they can be adults-only or have children join their parents to learn / get active as a family).
A-life has had the privilege of teaching at a number of special needs schools and we have experience adapting our sessions to meet varying levels of abilities and requirements. We have taught a wide range of levels, from children with very severe physical and mental limitations to children with subtle learning difficulties.
The hands-on nature of the Healthy Workshops means they can easily be adapted for all abilities and levels. A-life coaches simply discuss with the teachers the level at which they want the workshops set (which can also be changed at any point). We also find the Active Circuits fitness session works really well to meet the diverse physical needs of the pupils.
See our curriculum links page for topics and levels we cover.
Home school/ Cubs and Brownies/ Other groups
We understand some children may not get the opportunity to have A-life come to their school. So if you run a children’s group such as a homeschool network, cubs, brownies or other similar group please get in touch with which sessions you are interested in and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We just need access to a hall or large room with some tables and mats.
