I2M Membership

The Inspired to Move (I2m) Membership provides a journey for those who work with children from 4 to 7 years to develop effective and creative physical activity opportunities though continuous provision and more formal PE lessons.

It also provides the opportunity for a child to develop cognitively, physically and emotionally, through movement.

The I2M Member’s Area is divided into six sections:

Planning, Mini Yo!, Mini Moves, Cross-Curricular, ABC’S, Training

Through a monthly subscription each section will be updated with general subject information, activity idea, planning, films and training that will support your daily practice.

 

MoVE Seniors

Would you like to keep active, improve your balance, flexibility, independence, reduce pain and even reduce the risk of falling?

Would you find it useful to have a tool that gives you easy instructions as to how you can do so?

MoVE is a programme of physical activities and movement to music that can really help those in later life and those with limited mobility be healthier, more active and independent. 

Resources

Resources have been developed in response to teachers and early years practitioners needs and are complimentary to the training and programmes we provide.

The resources have been developed to be user-friendly, simple, enjoyable, engaging and educational. In the resources pages you will find:
