THE LOST BOYS

With the publication today of a Save The Children Report about boys, it has been found that a quarter of boys are falling behind by the time they start in reception, their first year at primary school.

It is so important for teachers to make learning fun for children. Boys also need more physical activity and outdoor play to expel their energy – this in turn can help their concentration.

Learning must be about having fun and in the reception year, play is a crucial component of this. For example, children enjoy using their imagination and role play their favourite super heroes. Play will help with speech development and communication.

At Amanda’s Action Club, we continue to engage boys and girls as early as possible. With us, they learn to listen, play and do lots of physical activity to help their development in readiness for school.

National Childhood Obesity Week – fighting obesity here and now!

The numbers….

• Almost 3 in 4 adults will be obese by 2035 – a frightening statistic to think that the children of today are very likely to be very overweight as adults.

• Over the next 20 years an additional 670,000 people will get some form of cancer because of being overweight and/or obese.

• A 2014 survey of children aged 2-15 showed that 14% were classified as overweight and an additional 17% were obese.

• Obesity reduces life expectancy by an average of three years, or eight to ten years in the case of severe obesity (BMI over 40).

These statistics are very disturbing. We must try and help stop some of these predictions coming true. We have to act now!

A for Active!

We must keep our children active – we can do very simple things to make this happen:

• Walk to school
• Ride a bike
• Kick a ball in the park
• Run around in the fresh air
• Go to the playground
• Take part in a sport at school and in free time
• Dance around the living room

Our children can have better lifestyles if we make some small changes. This means, getting more active and eating more healthily. Keeping energetic and eating a balanced diet will be an effective combination in keeping us in good health.

At Amanda’s Action Club, we love being active from the moment we wake up!
We help you and your little ones as young as 4 months to jiggle and get excited about moving their arms and legs to music, song and laughter.

It is essential that we continue to support our children and young people in getting fitter outdoors and indoors – we can all do it! Simple things are a great start and this can take place even in the confines of our own living rooms. So here’s how you can start, dance around to Amanda’s Warm Up Song:

 

Let’s help the next generation keep fit and stay healthy!

Here at Amanda’s Action Club, we love to see daddies come to our classes. It can be such a fun and bonding experience to take your baby or toddler to our classes.

A fathers’ involvement in his child’s life is important – from very early on around the time of birth through to engaging in their development and education.

Numerous studies show that positive involvement of fathers can lead to enhanced educational attainment, improved behaviour, better well-being and better child relationships. So you can see, their involvement is incredibly important. We hope to see many more daddies come and have fun with us!

IMG_1906Get your children active – Amanda’s top tips

Physical inactivity can contribute to heart disease as it can lead to future health problems. World Heart Day highlights how we can take control of our heart health by getting more active.

♥ The World Health Organization recommends that children aged 5-17 years should aim for at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity each day.

♥ Be active with your children by walking or cycling to school together.

♥ Even helping do the housework is a great way to keep the heart pumping!

♥ Go to the park with your children, let them run around or visit the playground.

♥ Take the stairs rather than the lift.

♥ Put the radio on and dance around the living room. Our motto is, children
dance more, when a grown up dances WITH them! Set up a mini circuit, children
enjoy a challenge. Play with active toys.

Fun heart facts

♥ Your heart is one of the most important organs in the human body.

♥ On average did you know your heart beats 100,000 times every day!

♥ Your heart has the mighty job of keeping blood flowing through the 60,000 miles of blood vessels that feed your organs and tissues.

♥ Your heart sends 2,000 gallons of blood surging through your body.

Terms and conditions

The winner will be selected on 30 September 2015.
The winner will receive the Turbo Twins toy from WOW Toys. The winner is also entitled to a one-hour exclusive party with Amanda’s Action Club at a mutually agreeable location in the London and surrounding area. Party package is valid until 30 September 2016.

Action Packed Autumn with Amanda

Welcome back!

For many of you, it’s back to school for the older children. Socks, tights, pencils and shoes all bought and sorted, now perhaps it’s time for you to breathe a sigh of relief and think about your little ones and what they can be up to this autumn?

Well, we have the answer, come and join us with your babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers (4 months-4 years) for some action packed fun this autumn! Music, mini workouts and laughter are all on the menu at our locations across London.

Wandsworth and Fulham

We have exciting changes to our timetable at Skylark Cafe in Wandsworth. We’re starting at an earlier time of 9:45 am on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. We hope this fits in much better with you and school runs and everything else you need to fit into the day.

Also of interest for the really little ones in Wandsworth, is an 11:30 am class every Thursday. This is a shorter session for babies from 4-12 months. The lunchtime sleep after our class is guaranteed!

Calling Fulham mummies, daddies and nannies – if you’ve not tried us, we have a 10 am class every Wednesday at My Kid Atelier on Dawes Road. www.mykidatelier.co.uk.

You can also book a free trial on our website www.amandasactionclub.co.uk.

We hope to see you soon. We will keep updated through Facebook and Twitter:

Promoting Creative Development

Everyday children, whatever age they might be, will be learning skills to help them grow the building blocks of life, creating skills that will stay with them right into adulthood. From learning how to socialise and interact with others, to picking up and holding small objects.

Ensuring your children have an environment where they can thrive is a must, and there’s no better time to do it than now. Even if you have a very young baby, you will soon see how they will be grabbing at their first brightly coloured toy, and following you around the room.

Fine motor Skills such as picking up small items, learning through art, clapping and co-ordinating themselves to music, all help children gain core strength, dexterity and co-ordination.

Cognitive Development may seem further down the scale but you couldn’t be more wrong, teaching your child simple problem solving, and understanding and processing information from others establishes intellectual development.

Creative Development
Children love to express their curiosity and as we all know, they love to explore! Giving children the opportunity to make choices and to listen and move to music, allow children to grow creatively.

Amanda’s Action Club puts all these core developments at the heart of what we do, giving your children the very best knowledge in how they can develop some of these skills that will stay with them for a lifetime.
