"We invested in the Haktive bags from our Sports Premium for our new Foundation class to help initiate the message that we are an active school that believes in the importance of physical activity and the positive impact it has on health and well being. We do home visits for new pupils and the Haktive bag was an invaluable tool for a very informal yet effective assessment of pupils motor skills and communication. It gave so much insight into the child, so much more quickly than any conversation. The impact we’ve seen has been on many levels - from easing the transition to school life, to enabling SEN pupils to feel connected to the school with a common object. From parents engaging positively with the school, as they were thrilled with the gift go the bag left with the family after the visit, to children making up their own games with other children using the class bag. For sustainable impact on pupil health and well being, it is a positive use of the Sports Premium". Bryn Gibson, Harwell Primary School
'We’ve been lucky enough that our Head thought so much of the Haktive bag and concept that he decided to invest in one for every new foundation stage pupil. I’ve given them to family’s on our home visits and they have been a fantastic tool as well as an excellent gift to leave for them. Already we’ve seen benefits for children with special equational needs to help the transistion to school life. It’s a really valuable link between home and school and one which is proving extremely positive." Katie Foundation Class Teacher - Harwell Primary School
"Our daughter absolutely loves it and wanted to play with it right away. She set up party games for her Granny’s 70th Birthday for the whole family to play, she’s also loved setting us challenges when we’ve gone camping. A great way of getting us all involved in some fun activities and games". Katie - Harwell, daughter is 10
What a great way to make active play part of our everyday ‘what shall we do’ options. I love the cards; in 2 minutes I’ve understood how to get the activity going & it’s great that the harder & easier options mean my 5 year old, 3 year old & I can all take part together. The equipment is really good quality & the bag means we can quickly collect it up & keep it together. It was the perfect thing to take on holiday. I’ve realised how happy it makes my children when I get up & join in & the haktive bag has really helped me do this. Thank you! Sarah, Lechalde children are 5 and 3
"Thanks very much for the Haktive bag - we've already started having fun with it and making up our own versions of some of the games! The cones and balls have inspired Tom and his friends to come up with football training games too 😃" Alice - Wallingford, son aged 8
What fun we had! The kids loved the obstacle courses, coming up with all sorts of ideas themselves. I have enjoyed watching them learn to skip, as we don’t have skipping ropes, quite a difficult skill to learn but they did it. Thank you for the inspiration. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone with young children. Time is precious, this is a great way of enjoying it, Fun to be had by all.” Sophie, Hereford children aged 7 and 5
"We love the Haktive bag! We haven’t fully explored the activities in the book yet, but have used the equipment and created some of our own games e.g a bowling type game where we space out the markers on the lawn, stand behind the line (marked with the skipping rope) and bowl the little ball to hit the markers. Different colours = different number of points. Lots of throwing & catching practice and skipping too. My eldest daughter is doing some childminding over the summer with three young children so have suggested she takes the bag along to inspire some activities!” Claire, Wallingford children aged 16 and 10
"Our daughter absolutely loves it and wanted to play with it straight away... A greatway of getting us all involved in some fun fun activities and games." Harwell, daughter aged 10.
