“My name is Anthony Seaman and I am proud to be part of the 3030 Essex campaign for 2019”.
We joined Anthony on a busy Monday morning at Grove Wood Primary School, Rayleigh and were immediately impressed by the very full trophy cabinet and the clear commitment to physical activity throughout the school. Anthony introduced us to a team of Sports Leaders from Year 6 as they were about to be put through their paces.
“My ethos towards physically activity is simple” says Anthony, “healthy hearts = healthy minds = healthy souls. Physical activity offers so much more than just the physical benefits. We learn and develop social skills, personal skills and cognitive processes through exposure to high quality physical activity, physical education and sport, and for me as an educator, these are the greatest benefits.”
Anthony introduces a great activity called The Animals. He talks the students through animal based movements that include the caterpillar, bunny and bear – all of which are for children of any age and can be done at home in the living room or garden as well as in a school setting.
Anthony is an Active Essex Education Practitioner and Lecturer for Essex & Thames, PE Specialist for the Castlepoint & Rochford Sports Partnership and PE Leader at Grove Wood Primary School, Rayleigh.
