Today, we held the SSP Yr2-4 Change4Life Festival at City Academy Norwich. The event saw over 70 pupils from six schools attend the event.
The schools that attended the event were;
- Bluebell Primary
- Cringleford Primary
- Mulbarton Primary
- St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary
- Valley Primary Academy
- Wensum Junior
The purpose of the festival was to encourage pupils who are traditionally less active to participate in physical activity as possible, increase their confidence and offer the opportunity to come away from the classroom and represent their school in a range of fun games and activities.
The pupils were split into small groups and then spent 15 minutes engaging in one activity before moving onto another. In total, the pupils had the opportunity to participate in six different fun activities and games. These were led by Sports Leaders from City Academy Norwich. Activities included the opportunity to practice, aiming, throwing, catching, hitting, control, balance and agility.
At the end of the festival, some pupils were nominated for a Sportsmanship Award. These were nominated by the staff members from each of the schools and in a short presentation, every nominated pupil was awarded with a certificate to take home. Pupils were nominated for being a good team player, encouraging others, trying their best and not giving up.
Overall, it was an enjoyable event for all involved and it was great to see so many pupils getting active.
Mrs Hornsby for Wensum Junior commented;
“It was a really enjoyable event and there was lots of smiles from the children”
Mr Palmer from St Francis of Assisi Primary added;
“It was a great event with fun activities that brought the best out of all of the children”
