Breakfast clubs are the perfect way for children to start their day right. They allow children to wake up, have some breakfast and gain a positive, mental attitude, ready to start the day.
S2S Courses run safe, reliable breakfast clubs from start to finish for local schools. We carry out a range of activities and provide a healthy, nutritious breakfast for all the children who attend our breakfast clubs, to fuel their bodies and get them ready for some fun, energising S2S Courses wake up games. We encourage all children to participate in our morning exercise sessions to wake up their mind and body - making sure they feel ready to take on the day ahead.
Children who attend breakfast clubs are known to achieve higher in their academics and improve positive behaviour. Therefore, it is essential that school’s run the best, most effective breakfast club possible. These are the steps that S2S Courses recommend to run the best, most successful breakfast clubs and really get your children woken up and ready for their day ahead.
Step 1: Provide a Healthy Breakfast
It is essential that you provide a healthy and nutritious breakfast such as low sugar cereals, fruit, toast, eggs and yoghurts, with a side of either water or milk. Health experts suggest breakfast should contain at least 25% of a child’s daily nutritional elements, therefore, it shouldn’t be missed.
A healthy breakfast will wake children up, help them feel more positive and get them ready to participate in some fun, energising activities before school.
Step 2: Help Boost Educational Achievement
A Breakfast club is the perfect opportunity to help enhance a child's educational knowledge. Allow 10-15 minutes for educational games such as group reading, mental maths, spelling bees and drawing competitions, before taking on a variety of physical activities.
Undergoing activities like this will help boost maths and english levels and allow children to work competitively and get creative.
Step 3: Provide Socialising Sessions
It is important that children have the opportunity to socialise with other year groups and unfamiliar faces. This will have a positive impact on social development, friendship skills, and boosting confidence when meeting new people.
There are a variety of activities for children to help their socialisation skills such as physical team building activities like huggy bear, traffic lights and head catch or educational based activities such as appointing reading buddies - where older children can help younger children in reading sessions.
Step 4: Engage in Fun, Energising Games
The primary advantage of participating in physical exercise before school is that it helps to improve concentration, allowing children to stay focused and positive throughout the day. Children will be eager to learn and focus on their studies, without disrupting others.
There are a number of fun PE games which will help kick start the day such as the bean bag run, tennis numbers, countries and keepy ups. Engaging in sports early will also help the body release endorphins, keeping children energised and concentrated all day, whilst reducing stress levels, building stronger peer relationships and boosting physical fitness.
Step 5: Hire a S2S Courses Coach
S2S Courses coaches are fully qualified, reliable sports coaches who provide support and carry out unique fun, sporting activities for kids in breakfast clubs at a range of local schools. S2S Courses coaches believe that breakfast clubs are the perfect and healthy way to awaken a child’s mind and body, whilst having a positive impact on behaviour and academic achievement.
