EFL Trust Move and Learn

Move & Learn Project EFL Move & learn 

  • Underpinned by the unique Joy of Moving methodology, the Move & Learn project is aimed at inspiring children of 9-10 years old (year 5&6) of all abilities to move through play. We know that it’s important to get this age range moving, as data from Sport England shows that only 22% of children from Year groups 5 – 6 are active every day. The Move & Learn project has been developed in partnership with the English Football League Trust (EFL Trust) and delivered with support from the Scottish Professional Football League Trust (SPFLT) and the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) and the Community Club Organisations across the UK and Ireland. 
  • Taking part in the six-week course gives each child nine hours of learning through fun games and exercises inspired by the Joy of Moving methodology. During the Move & Learn project, children learn the importance of physical activity, the connection between the body & mind, meal planning, hydration and balanced diets based on the Eatwell Guide. 

Joy Of Moving festivals 

  • The Joy of Moving Festivals are the latest addition to the Joy of Moving programme and have already become a firm favourite among teachers and students. Developed in partnership with the EFL Trust and delivered by the EFL Trust and SPFLT through a network of dedicated Community Club Organisations, the Festivals offer a great opportunity for children of all ages and abilities to learn life skills and move through play. 
  • The Joy of Moving Festivals are half or full day events which help schools build physical activity into their daily routine. Taking place during the summer term in over 100 schools across the UK, the specially designed games and activities help children to develop skills including communication, empathy and team work.
