Super Movers!

Super Movers!

Burnley FC in the Community are proud to be delivering the Super Movers programme across primary schools in Burnley and its local communities.

Super Movers is an exciting partnership between the Premier League and BBC. It helps teachers get their pupils moving throughout the day with lots of free, easy-to-use video resources and great football-inspired incentives like a visit from the Premier League trophy!

Active children do better and get more from their school day. Super Movers gets stars from Burnley FC and the footballing world involved in fun educational videos which will capture children’s imagination and get them moving.

What is Super Movers?

A partnership between the Premier League and BBC, brought to the local community by BFCitC, Super Movers encourages teachers to adopt an active approach to learning and include physical activity throughout the day.

Super Movers gives teachers video content-led ideas and simple solutions to help children learn while they move – all free, fun and easy-to-use in the classroom. No extra equipment is required.

Some of the exciting things Super Movers includes:

  • Top tips and bright ideas about how to best use Super Movers from active schools and Burnley Football Club.
  • Stars from the world of football and television will come together to capture children’s imagination in a series of videos that will enhance children’s learning.
  • Premier League-inspired rewards including prizes, certificates and stickers to help incentivise children.
  • Live lessons broadcast on BBC platforms.

Super Movers can also be used at home too with a range of fun videos and games designed to get children and grown-ups moving together in their living rooms, so parents as well as teachers can join in.

Why is physical activity important to learning?

Active children do better in every possible way. Physical activity helps with academic achievement, behaviour, concentration and self-esteem. Research has proven that just five minutes of moderate exercise can significantly improve engagement in lessons.

Super Movers encourages teachers and schools to incorporate physical activity throughout the day to boost pupils’ engagement with learning. The resources will also help meet Government guidelines of a recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day for children.
