Bicester Family Year 3&4 Girls Multi-skills

Brookside Primary School hosted the Bicester Year 3/4 Girls Multi-skills festival on Wednesday 16th March.  The event was aimed at less active girls who do not usually engage in sport and physical activity beyond lesson time.  Over sixty children from six Primary schools took part including Brookside, Bure Park, Kings Meadow, Chesterton, St. Edburg’s and Southwold.  Teams took part in various activities and challenges during the festival including archery, colour match, skittles, narrow pass, obstacle races and Paralympic sports boccia and sitting volleyball.  Each activity was led by Bicester School Young Leaders who offered guidance, support and encouragement throughout.  

During the festival, the Spirit of the Games value ‘Self Belief’ was a key focus area.  Two girls from each team were presented with a special certificate to recognise their positive attitude, trying their best at new challenges and activities and being confident.

With the fun and enjoyment shown by all taking part it is hope all the girls are inspired to take part in sport both in and outside school.  Congratulations to all children, sport leaders, teachers and additional adults who contributed to an enjoyable and fun afternoon of sport.
