What Happens in Workshops
Before the session
Before the session begins properly, a facilitator will set up six circuit stations around the school hall. Each of these will have a Super Food Hero board to motivate and inspire the children.
During the session
5 mins: Intro and brain storm ‘What does being healthy mean?’
10 mins: Warm up to ‘Super Food Heroes’ song with actions to prepare body and reinforce message.
Check it (what’s on your plate?)
Eat it (if it’s healthy)
Zap it (leave it, if it’s unhealthy)
15 mins: Super Food Heroes Circuit. Identifying muscle groups used and linking to everyday lifestyles. Celebrating difference/teamwork using Heroes as role models (five children at each station).
15 mins: Food Circuit, using photographs – linking how eating/handling different foods affect our bodies.
5 mins: ‘What have you learnt?’ section

What we need from you
Space needed for the workshop will be about a gym sized space – enough room for the children to run around in!
I’ll bring most of the materials I’ll need to do the workshop, however it would be helpful to have some sound system in place to play songs!
I can workshop up to 30 children at a time. It’s important that they come dressed in their PE gear and come with a positive attitude!
I will need exercise mats for the children to be able to unleash their full superhero potential!
