MOVE With Zip Active

Zip Active

Supporting children in the early years to develop fundamental movement skills, enjoy physical activity, and promote a healthy lifestyle, while supporting their communication and language development.

MOVE with Zip Active is designed for children aged 2-5 years in reception classes, for PE and daily activity, nurseries, play groups, childminder settings, and in the home. It fully supports many areas of the curriculum and can be delivered by all those working with young children. (It can also support fundamental movement skill development in KS1 PE.)

What is included?

Inside the MOVE resource you will find:

5 large themed colourful posters to help to generate conversations with children, supporting knowledge and understanding of shapes, colours, numbers, physical actions and the world around us. They are designed to help with:

  • Phonological (sound) awareness, including identifying and using parts of language, words, syllables, and rhymes.
  • Use of vocabulary.
  • Expressive language, using language in an accurate and coherent manner.
  • Comprehension or receptive language, understanding of complex language forms.

MOVE With Zip Active

  • 36 theme related activity cards with loads of fun physical activity ideas to support the fundamental movement skills of agility, balance and coordination, fine and gross motor skills, with teaching points, vocabulary and sound prompts all linked to the poster theme. Also includes 6 child friendly yoga pose cards to support body control, relaxation, mindfulness and wellbeing.
