Join Tops for National School Sports Week!

Get ready to lace up your sneakers and join Tops Day Nurseries for National School Sports Week from Monday, June 17 to Sunday, June 23, 2024. This exciting week, powered by Sports Direct’s Monster Kickabout, brings a special Euro 2024 event to emphasise the importance of football and engaging young people in 60 minutes a day of PE, sport, and play!

National School Sports Week isn’t just about sports—it’s about fostering a love for movement, teamwork, and healthy habits from an early age. Research shows that active children are happier, healthier, and perform better academically. It’s a chance for children to discover new sports, build confidence, and make lifelong memories.

Why Exercise is Important For Little One’s:

Physical activity isn’t just about staying fit—it’s essential for children’s overall development and well-being. Here’s why:

  • Health Benefits: Regular exercise helps children maintain a healthy weight, strengthens muscles and bones, and improves cardiovascular fitness. It reduces the risk of chronic diseases later in life.
  • Mental Well-being: Physical activity boosts mood and reduces feelings of anxiety and depression. It enhances cognitive function, concentration, and academic performance.
  • Social Skills: Team sports and group activities teach children important social skills like teamwork, communication, and leadership. It fosters friendships and builds confidence.
  • Lifelong Habits: Encouraging active lifestyles from a young age sets the foundation for lifelong healthy habits. Children who exercise regularly are more likely to continue being active into adulthood.

How You and Your Family Can Get Involved:

Use the free resources provided to engage in fun and educational activities at home. Plus, by participating in the fundraising efforts throughout the week, your family could win a sports-inspired LEGO bundle! Here are the main activities:

  • Active Mornings: Start each day with a fun physical activity like a family walk, yoga session, or dance-off.
  • Football Fun: Join in the Monster Kickabout by organising a mini football match in your garden or local park.
  • Sports Star Friday: Dress up as your favorite sporting hero and share your photos with us using the hashtag #YSTSportsStarFriday.
