Children who have an afternoon break at school 'are fitter and perform just as well in exams'

Afternoon breaks could make children fitter and do not take away from learning, research suggests.

Researchers from Swansea University looked at more than 5,000 primary-school students from across Wales.

They found those who had playtime in the afternoon, as well as a morning and lunchtime break, could run further.

This is compared to the youngsters who only had morning and midday breaks.
