Friendship Games – Melbourn
17 January, 2024 from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
FOR ALL, TARGETED, COMPETITIVE
All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.
FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.
COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This is a TARGETED event for quieter children in Year 5/6 pupils who are PP/disadvantaged, don’t normally engage in physical activity/sport and possibly lack parental support to do this. The aim of this event is to develop social connections, to increase confidence & motivation and engage new audiences in physical activity and sport.
Our Friendship Games events are for invited schools only with schools asked to bring a group of up to 12 children to take part in an afternoon of multi-sport activities including for example archery, tri-golf, dodgeball, basketball, table tennis, tag rugby. Please note you cannot book on to this event. We will email invited schools to take part in due course.
