Looking for ways to create an active classroom and break up long periods of sitting?  

The Irish Heart Foundation’s NEW Bizzy Breaks programme for primary schools is packed with ideas for physical activity and mindfulness in the classroom; whether it’s for a brain break to help with concentration, an energiser to break up sitting time or a transition between lessons, Bizzy Breaks has an activity for you.

  • Minimal equipment or preparation required.
  • Covid friendly (adapted for physical distancing/pods).
  • Ideal for SPHE and promoting wellbeing.
  • Perfect for use indoors and in small classrooms (many activities can also be done outdoors).
  • 5-to-10-minute activities.
  • All activities are linked to the curriculum to help integrate Bizzy Breaks into the school day.
  • Printable and interactive learning resources (lesson plans, worksheets, presentations) for a variety of subjects to complement activities.
  • Contributes to the daily 60 minutes of physical activity recommended for children’s health. 

Join us for a Bizzy Breaks webinar where we’ll discuss:

  1. Optimising physical activity and mindfulness in the classroom for better concentration, focus and learning.
  2. How to build your toolkit of resources with Bizzy Breaks for an active and mindful classroom.
  3. Using physical activity and mindfulness to meet curriculum learning outcomes/objectives. (We’ll introduce you to our additional learning resources so you can easily integrate physical activity and mindfulness into your existing plans or scheme of work.)
  4. Tips and ideas for introducing mindfulness in the classroom. (We’ll demonstrate some different mindfulness techniques and approaches you can use to create moments of calm.)
