Crackerjack Kids covers the curriculum
The CJK programme connects directly with the five key competencies outlined in the New Zealand Ministry of Education Curriculum and correlates to the underlying concepts of the Health and Physical Education Curriculum.
Crackerjack Kids integrates easily into your school
Crackerjack Kids was developed by experts to provide primary schools with the tools they need to effectively deliver foundational elements of the Health and PE curriculum.
The primary school programme follows the ‘Teaching Games for Understanding’ approach. Positive attitudes towards physical activity are created through the use of small-sided games that involve modifications and questioning.
Real benefits for children, families and communities
Crackerjack Kids provides strategies to make and maintain healthy friendships and take part in school life in a positive way, while building a child’s self esteem and confidence.
