Public Health England (PHE) and Disney UK, with support from Sport England, is launching a national Change4Life 10 Minute Shake Up campaign to help get the nation’s children more active. It aims to get children active for 60 minutes a day, with 10 minute bursts of active fun inspired by their favourite characters and stories from Disney-Pixar's Toy Story 4 and Incredibles 2, and Disney's The Lion King and Frozen.

It is recommended that children do at least 60 minutes each day; ideally 30 minutes in school and 30 minutes outside of school.[1] Yet three in four children are doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity each day.

That’s why Change4Life has teamed up with Disney to create fun and easy 10 Minute Shake Up activities and take-home materials to get pupils moving throughout the summer.

Schools across the country are taking part in 10 Minute Shake Up, with Change4Life Disney themed take-home games packs arriving in over 16,500 state-funded primary schools in England during June. A number of free curriculum-linked schools resources – such as a whole-school assembly, active role play lesson starters, certificates and top tips for school leaders – are also available for teachers to download on the School Zone, PHE’s online hub offering free, flexible teaching resources, to help embed active habits in schools.

A range of promotional campaign resources, including posters, event kits and more Change4Life Disney themed take-home games packs, will be available for sports centres and local organisations to order in mid-July from PHE’s Campaign Resource Centre.

Don’t hesitate to get involved and Shake Up this summer.
