Bicester Family Year 1 Multi-skill festivals

Bicester Family Year 1 Multi-skills Festivals

Over three hundred Year 1 children participated in two Bicester Family multi-skills festivals held at Bicester Leisure Centre on Wednesday 10th February 2016.  Brookside, St. Edburg’s and Southwold Primary Schools took part in the morning event and Kings Meadow, St. Mary’s, Fritwell, Bure Park and Chesterton Primary Schools took part in the afternoon session.

 Teams took part in various relay and skill based activities in a circuit.  These included rugby, tennis, obstacle and beanbag relay and shuttle run, target throw, dribbling and standing long jump.  In both festivals there was plenty of enthusiasm and effort by all children.  The festivals were expertly led by 25 Key Stage 3 Bicester student leaders who showed tremendous energy to keep going throughout the day.

During the festival, the Spirit of the Games value ‘Self Belief’ was a key focus area.  One member from each team was presented with a special certificate to recognise their bravery and confidence in taking on the new activities.   

 Congratulations to all children, young leaders, teachers and additional adults who all contributed to fun and enjoyable festivals.
