It’s Never Too Young To Have Fun!
Paignton Academy welcomed over 200 Reception children to a multi-skills festival, led by a team of young sports leaders.
The children took part in a whole host of different activities that focused on agility, balance, coordination, teamwork, problem solving and resilience. The children had an amazing time throwing, catching, dodging, jumping, running and even hiding!
The sports leaders who ran the activities had taken part in an after-school training event, organised and led by Mr Julyan, who said,
“This is the first time we have run a festival for children of this age and it has been one of the best! The sports leaders have demonstrated tremendous courage, enthusiasm and teamwork today, which have resulted in this superb festival.”
The event has now been established as a regular fixture on the festival calendar and will take place again next year.
