ActivAll for SEN provision?
ActivAll, an innovative and inclusive tool for SEN provision, each exercise involves playing a game, and the player receives a score based on their performance. This ‘gamification’ motivates users to keep going, or to have another go. Consequently, exercise is much easier and more enjoyable.
Combining movement, action, coordination, and problem-solving, the ActivAll combats apathy and engages even the most reluctant of users. In 2018 ActivAll was accredited with the Inclusive Fitness Initiative mark.
The Regulation room has a range of equipment used by small groups of learners and also learners on a 1:1 basis, to aid regulation at intervals during the day.
The Activall boards have proved a real hit with all the learners, ranging from Nursery to Upper School learners.
The room is open each morning for regulation slots for small groups and the rest of the day as a 1:1 intervention for other learners, needing this to regulate so they can carry on with their daily activities.
The learners love using the boards with their hands, some use their feet and others love to wear the boxing gloves or use the balls. Lots love to compete against each other, or compete with themself to beat their previous score. For lots of learners it is a great way for them to improve their upper body strength, their core stability and crossing the midline of their body.
The Activall boards have really added something fun around regulation for all of our learners.
