23-5216-AUT- Movement Breaks, Brain Breaks & Drama Games

Movement breaks, Brain Breaks & Drama Games

This webinar will outline why movement breaks and brain breaks need to be an integral part of the school day. Research tells us that the average learner, regardless of age needs to briefly move their bodies every 20-30 minutes, and many learn the most effectively with movement breaks every 15 minutes. This enables learners to maintain focus, integrate learning across both of the brain’s hemispheres, enter information into memory, and avoid feeling overwhelmed or information overload. These short breaks can provide efficiency in learning, stress relief, mood enhancement, boost relationships and class cohesion. This webinar is packed with ideas for movement breaks, brain breaks and fun drama games to add to your day.  

Learning Outcomes 

  • Participants will obtain basic knowledge on the underpinning neuroscience behind reaching the learning brain.
  • Participants will be given  a variety of tools and activities to support regulation, in order for the children to be able to then relate to them and to the content being taught.
  • Participants will understand and be aware of the importance of movement to encourage class cohesion, enhance social and emotional skills, which will lead to children flourishing in the classroom environment.
