Barnsley Council is supporting a call to all friends of the Resistance! Public Health England (PHE) and Disney UK have launched a brand new national Change4Life programme – Train Like A Jedi – to help children get active and inspire a new generation of Resistance recruits.
The new programme uses the excitement of Star WarsTM and its characters to encourage children to move more, both at school and at home. Taking inspiration from everyone’s favourite Star Wars characters Rey and Luke, it’s a chance to help get children and young people active as they learn to master the ways of the Jedi with a fun play along video.
The video features British Taekwondo athlete and double Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones, who alongside a special appearance from BB-8, leads kids through a series of Jedi inspired moves, which will prepare them to be ready for when the Resistance might need them!
Combined together, the 12 moves become one special Jedi training routine that helps children learn and master six key skills – technique, strength, stamina, speed, agility and mastery.
Once children have finished their training, these Jedi skills will be valuable in the next part of the journey that will help them continue to master the ways of the Jedi at home. Look out for Train Like A Jedi summer packs in your child’s school bag this summer term, which contain an exciting series of secret challenges.
