6% of children in Birmingham are ‘severely obese’, almost 2% higher than the national average.

The number of children meeting the recommended amount of physical activity for healthy development and to maintain a healthy weight, which is 60 minutes a day, drops by 40% as they move through primary school. A new survey from Public Health England (PHE) and Disney looking at the effects of physical activity on children’s emotional wellbeing, found:

being active made the majority of 5 to 11 year olds :- 
feel happier (79%),
more confident (72%)
more sociable (74%),
according to their parents nearly all children said they liked being active (93%)

In short the simple way of keeping kids happy and healthy is to keep them active.

So what is The Bugs Group?

The Bugs Group offers a range of sports, activities and extra curricular clubs for children from Nursery to Year 6. Sessions are delivered using imagination and themes to make it more enjoyable for children as well as enhance their learning experience.

YogaBugs is an all-inclusive and non-competitive sport that allows all children to develop emotionally and physically, gaining a positive experience of physical activity and developing mindfulness through breathing and relaxation techniques.

FootieBugs offer an all-inclusive fun introduction to football for boys and girls of all ages through storytelling and imagination themes, helping children gain social skills and confidence as well as developing their physical ability.
DanceBugs allow children to learn in a pressure free environment through fun physical activities and creative movement. Children develop not only social skills and confidence, but also develop physical abilities such as stamina, flexibility and coordination.
MultiBugs programmes combine a variety of sports that not only improve physical fitness levels, but also their emotional literacy. MultiBugs sessions can be taught through curriculum PE, targeted lunch time clubs or after school clubs.

Sports available in our programmes

“YogaBugs has helped improve children’s concentration because they have learnt to focus and have been taught techniques to enable them to breathe and stay calm.”

Jan Symes
Assistant Head Teacher Marston
Green Infant Academy

“We’ve had YogaBugs for 3 years, year on year we have continued with the programme as it’s been so successful. Children are sitting better, listening better and they are working better as a team.”

Nick Wright
Deputy Head
St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

“FootieBugs is part of our curriculum and all of the children are showing increased confidence, both in football and school.”

Dave Foster
Deputy Head
Mapledene Primary School.

“The children enjoy the enthusiasm of the coaches and classes and are always looking forward to the next MultiBugs session.”
