Delivered by: Irish Heart Foundation
The Irish Heart Foundation, the national charity fighting heart disease and stroke, is pleased to introduce you to our new teacher training workshop for Action for Life. Action for Life is supported by the Department of Education and Skills and the Health Service Executive.
Action for Life is a health related physical activity resource for primary schools designed to support teachers with the roll-out of their PE programme. There are four booklets, one for each of the four class levels; Junior & Senior Infants; First & Second Class; Third & Fourth Class; Fifth & Sixth Class. The resource reflects both the PE and SPHE curricula with a focus on the strands of athletics, dance and gymnastics.
Adaptations for those with differing abilities are included within the activities.
As part of the teacher training, the Irish Heart Foundation will provide your school with the following resources:
- Action for Life set of manuals
- 1 x Bizzy Break and 1 x Bizzy Break for Rainy Days
- Let’s get active pocket planners
The teacher training is a 1.5 hour practical workshop (please wear appropriate clothing and bring an exercise mat) that takes teachers through Action for Life V2 and how it is delivered in the classroom.
