BGN Family Year 1 Multi-skills festivals

Over 250 Year 1 children participated in the BGN Family multi-skills festivals held at Blessed George Napier Catholic School on Thursday 23rd March 2017.  The two festivals involved all seven BGN family Primary Schools including Bishop Loveday, Cropredy, St. John’s and St. Joseph’s attending the morning event and Hardwick, Orchard Fields and William Morris taking part in the afternoon event.

Teams took part in various relay and skill based activities in a circuit.  These included rugby, tennis, obstacle relay, treasure chest, shuttle run, target throw, dribbling and standing long jump.   The activities were expertly planned and delivered by twenty-two young student leaders from Blessed George Napier, St. John’s and Orchard Fields.   All these Young leaders are part of the BGN Family Key Stage 2-3 Leadership Academy. 

During the festival, the Spirit of the Games value ‘Self Belief’ was a key focus area.  One member from each team was 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 two very fun and enjoyable festivals.
