The NHS advises that children between five and 18 should take part in aerobic exercise every week, as well as exercises to strengthen muscles and bones.

Children should reduce the time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity, while they should aim for an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per day across the week.

Together with the BBC, the Premier League has developed a series of free and easy-to-follow Super Movers educational videos to help children in Key Stage 1 and 2 keep active and learn at the same time.

Liverpool FC mascot Mighty Red will have your family dancing and doing division, while Brighton mascot Gully gets children moving to help boost their energy levels.
