This is the question posed to Year 5 as part of a research project St Margaret’s Lee are participating in. The aim of the project is to identify ways of getting more children active, with a particular emphasis on girls.
Q1: How many children in Year 5 wear trainer-style school shoes?
Answer: 14 (less than half the class, of which only 2 are girls)
Q2: How many children regularly change their shoes for lunch play?
Answer: 2 (both boys)
Q3: In a normal week, how much active play are you currently engaged in?
The children used Excel to generate stacked bar charts that show levels of active play throughout the week.
