Delves Junior School – #The Joy of Moving

I visited Delves Junior School on Friday  15 March 2024 to see FerreroUK’s unbranded social responsibility programme the Joy of Moving at first hand. The Programme is delivered by Walsall FC Foundation as part of Ferrero’s long term partnership with the English Football league. 

The first part of the programme was listening in on a class room based activity where the children learn about the different food groups using the Eatwell Guide. 

Then the children went to the Hall and formed teams where each member of the team picked up cards of each food group.  It was good to see the children active and using their knowledge in a game which made them move. The programme helps children to develop key skills in four major areas, physical fitness, motor coordination, cognitive functions and creativity and life skills.  

The children were also given T shirts. The Joy of Moving is celebrating its 10 year of the programme in schools and want play based learning to be part of the curriculum.
