Love Exploring: The Covid-19 pandemic has had a big impact on children’s physical activity levels. The latest Sport England data shows that while some children, especially girls, became more active during lockdowns, many were less active. In response, Public Health and Active Leeds have linked up with Love Exploring, a free app which can be downloaded onto smartphones and tablets, to offer an innovative way of encouraging families to be active together this summer.
In eight parks across Leeds, plus the city centre waterfront, an augmented reality (AR) Dinosaur Safari will be on offer for free via the Love Exploring app. Each safari features up to nine AR dinosaurs, offering routes of between 1-3 kilometres. Families can take a photograph of themselves with a roaring T-rex or swooping pterodactyl as they chase around the park having fun together. The app can be downloaded to smartphones and tablets via this link: https://bit.ly/LoveExploringLeeds. This is an opportunity to do something fun which is Covid-sensitive, physically active and local, making the most of Leeds’ green spaces.

Newlaithes’ School Creed
This is our school.
Let peace live here,
Let the rooms be full of happiness
Let love be all around.
Love of one another,
Love of all people
And love of life and living.
Let us remember
That, as many hands build a house
So, many hearts build a school.
