Learning & Discovery Festival
The Learning and Discovery Festival is a fantastic activity resource which can be used at home by the children over half term. It is part of the Inclusion 2020 project set up by the Youth Sport Trust (YST), which focuses on inspiring pupils to play and enjoy unified sport together, and challenge attitude and perceptions of disabilities.
There are 4 different activities outlined in the resource cards attached to engage with, each have a video and instructions. There is also an opening and closing ceremony video for your festival and it is all hosted by a Paralympian!!
Who can take part? – The festival is open to all primary school-aged children.
Once children have had a go at the activities there is a short survey to complete (within the resource attached) so data can be passed onto The Department for Education, this can be completed by parents/carers.
This is not a competition, so scores do not have to be submitted.
Premier Active are trying to gage requirements for children/parents. Please complete the short survey below:

Celebration of children’s learning
Please follow the link to see pictures of your children’s learning this week:
As the half term holiday approaches, I would just like to say thank you and well done to everyone within our school community. The staff have worked very hard over the last 6 weeks to get our remote learning offer up and running so that we can provide a broad curriculum to all our children. The feedback I have had from many parents has been positive and the teachers very much appreciate this. As parents many of you have juggled work commitments and home schooling, and although it has undoubtedly been difficult, we can see the level of your commitment from the work the children are completing and sending to their teachers. Finally, to all our pupils, who have had to deal with so much in terms of changes to their routine, getting used to working in a completely different way and missing the chance to be with their friends. They have been amazing, and it has been great to see so many children take the opportunity to keep connected to the school through the daily catch-up meetings.
I hope you all have a lovely half term break and we look forward to seeing you either in person or remotely after half term.
