  • Understand that physical activity can help them grow into healthy adults

In the classroom

Change4Life has partnered with Disney to inspire children to get active and make exercise fun using the connection that kids have with Disney stories and characters. 

This pack includes:

  • Teacher’s resource booklet
  • Wall chart
  • Activity cards
  • Blank 10 Minute Shake Up cards
  • 10 Minute Shake Up clue sheet

Use the Shake Up cards to break up the day and get children energised for the next lesson.


Great to use as a ‘quick fix’ for getting active and as a resource to help increase concentration.


Supports PE


  • Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others

Pupils should be taught to:

  • Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • Perform dances using simple movement patterns
