Last Thursday nearly 600 Key stage 1 pupils from schools across the town took part in one of four multi-skills festivals held at Banbury Academy and Blessed George Napier School.
The events, organised by School Sport Coordinators Lucie Smith-Childs and Rory Mawn, were delivered by Year 6 and Year 7 students from the two secondary schools and several of the participating primary schools.
The children got to experience a whole range of fun games and activities aimed at developing physical, social, personal and moral skills. Feedback from pupils, leaders and teachers alike was all very positive:
“Very friendly atmosphere, good and clear instructions, our children loved it.” (Teacher from Orchard Fields Primary)
“I feel happy,” “I understand what I had to do,” “Stuck in the mud was great”, “I liked the beanbag games” and “Wicked!” (Children from Bishop Loveday Primary)
