Physical activity promotes learning
As part of the Folkeskole reform and the more varied school day, focus has been placed on exercise and movement in the school. More physical activity during the school day strengthens both the pupils' learning and well-being, says a new report from the Knowledge Council for Prevention.
The Frederiksbjerg school can hold 920 students, builds on the latest principles for play and learning, with focus on movement strengthening learning and is based on dynamic spaces over the entire school's area.
-We got the opportunity to rethink how we want children to go to school.We didn't want a traditional school of ass-to-seat teaching for many hours, but a school where the students can't help but move actively.We abolished the concept of free time, because education should not be something the children should be free of. The lessons must be develop the young people and keep them active. In addition, it comes as a natural extension that hallways and common areas invite young people into sports," says Jette Bjørn Hansen, school leader at Frederiksbjerg School.
Unisport has been responsible for the design and behavior of a wide range of movement areas for the intermediate level. The 40 movement stations were outlined by Henning Larsen Architects, but we were tasked with rethinking and further developing the sports stations so that they more fully live up to the ambitions of the school. At Frederiksbjerg school, there really is a focus on sports and thought sports and movement throughout the building.
We have delivered the following sports facilities to Frederiksbjerg school:
- Sensory room/installation with climbing boxes, hoverboard and stalk forest.
- Climbing Ladder in the entrance hall.
- Ninja Modules.
- Organic Ribs.
- Twister Wheels and Board on the floor.
- Running Track - painted on the Pulastic floor.
