The Bugs Group work with St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School as part of Physical Health Day!

 

On Friday the 12th of May The Bugs Group helped run sports activities at St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School in Birmingham as part of their Physical Health Day. FootieBugs, YogaBugs, DanceBugs and MultiBugs all worked with classes from the school’s reception and year one classes! The awful weather did not affect the children having a fun and active morning, read on to see what activities everyone participated in.

 

FootieBugs took the children on a football based story adventures, where Paw Patrol was the theme of the session! The children were able to pick their favourite character and be a part of the Paw Patrol, by finding football pitches, putting out fires and racing against Robo-Dog by dribbling a football as fast as they can!

In YogaBugs, the children flew to Africa, they travelled through the jungle, pitched up a tent overnight and then met lots of animals including lions, giraffes and crocodiles! The yoga-inspired moves were incorporated into the adventure so the children hardly realised they were exercising at all!

And breathe….Children then had some well-deserved time to relax at the end of their YogaBugs adventure!

 

We saw some fantastic dance moves and routines being created by the children in our DanceBugs sessions! All the children had the chance to be creative with their movement and there was great engagement from all!

MultiBugs gave all the children the opportunity to play a range of different sports and fun games! The children’s favourite activity was Foxes and Farmers, where half the children were the foxes and the other half were farmers. It was up to the farmers to chase and catch the foxes by grabbing their tails!

At the end of the day, all children were awarded with special certificates for their excellent work on physical health day. It left not only the children tired but also our coaches as everyone had worked so hard! The Bugs Group would like to say a massive thank you to all at St Bernadette’s and we hope we will be able to work with everyone again! It is great to see such a fantastic school having a key focus on the health, well-being and physical fitness of their pupils!

Increasing number of young children are requiring mental health services

 

 

This week, ITV central are running a mental health series, investigating mental health issues in children and young people across the Midlands.

One of the findings of their investigation was the staggering number of children that are needing to access mental health services. Their report found that 332 children aged 5 and under were seen in the East Midlands, with 960 of the same age group being seen in the West Midlands.

More and more children are suffering from mental health issues including stress and anxiety problems which can be intensified in a school environment, especially during SATs exam periods where children will feel increased amounts of pressure pressure. This means there is an increased need to help children manage these issues through mindfulness programmes.

YogaBugs have been running mindfulness programmes for a number of years, working to help children “quiet their minds”, focusing away from worry and anxiety and helping develop their overall mindfulness.

Our programmes combine yoga postures with breathing techniques and meditation, this makes children focus on ‘the here and now’ and not to worry about the past or the future. This allows them to distance themselves from disturbing thoughts and emotions and improving their overall mental health with skills and techniques they can use throughout their life.

World Asthma Day – YogaBugs Helpful Tips!

 

Today, Tuesday 2nd of May, is World Asthma Day. First Aid for Life report that approximately 5.4 million people are currently receiving treatment for Asthma, with 10% of all children suffering from Asthma.

For young children suffering from Asthma, sport and physical activity can be very difficult and this can make some children lose confidence as they may not have opportunities to play with friends or be ‘successful’ at sport.

YogaBugs provide a great form of physical activity for children with asthma and the use of breathing and relaxation techniques can help manage their condition. By performing a non-competitive sport, children can work and develop at their own pace, allowing them to boost their confidence levels and reduce anxiety or stress. This gives them a positive experience of sport and physical activity, making them more likely to participate in the future.

Through the use of different yoga poses and breathing techniques, children focus their breathing by taking deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth to increase their lung capacity. By increasing lung capacity, children’s general wellbeing improves and breathing issues such as asthma are controlled.

YogaBugs recommends some of the following poses to help with breathing issues such as asthma. The poses; butterfly, fish and bridge all open up the chest area increasing lung capacity and managing asthma problems whilst also decreasing anxiety.

Fish – Start on your back, bringing hands towards your tummy and bending elbows so head is lifted off the floor and chest is pointed upwards.

Bridge – Sitting down, place hands behind yourself with fingers pointing forward. Press down into your hands and feet, lifting bottom off the floor and tummy and chest towards the ceiling.

Butterfly – Sit on your bottom, bend your knees together and bring your feet together to touch each other.
