The Cambridge School Sports Partnership hosted their Aspire Festival on Thursday 26th September, it was a beautiful sunny morning.
The Aspire festival was created for Year 3/4 children who are either inactive, have low self esteem or SEN/D and haven’t taken part in any other competitions throughout the year. We are keen to target ALL children, not just those that are already active. Teams of 8 arrived onto St Laurence Primary School field. Children were excited and ready to participate. The children were keen to give each activity a go and really enjoyed working within their school groups.
The festival hosted a series of fun and exciting activities for the children to participate in. Archery, Jenga, Bean Bag target, Tri-Golf, Boccia, Frisbee, Crossing the swamp, Blind fold trust were on offer for the children to experience.
The Year 6 leaders from St Laurence Primary school were brilliant at showing the children how to play and encouraged them throughout the day. The CRC leaders helped the Year 6 leaders during the festival.
Each child received a certificate for their participation in the event.
Feedback from teachers and children was very positive the children felt welcome and relaxed.
Stapleford staff said “It’s the event is very welcoming, organised and fun.”
The schools that took part were:
Swaffham Bulbeck, Bottisham, The Grove, Stapleford, St Laurence, Shelford, Arbury, Cherry Hinton and Newnham Croft.
