Primary School Fun Sports Festival
We welcomed local primary schools to join us for a day of fun at our sports festival. A selection of year 8 volunteers teamed together with their P.E teacher to create a fun afternoon for the local primary school children. An ideal opportunity for the younger children to mix with the older students whilst familiarising themselves with their prospective new surrounding here at Exeter Road.
We often invite local schools to join us as for fun and exciting activities and experiences, this helps massively when transitioning from primary to secondary school. For many children the change can add stress and anxiety dealing with new experiences such as new classrooms, bigger buildings, new travel arrangements and meeting new teachers and staff. Overcoming such difficult experiences early enough helps removes barriers to learning and enable them to reach their full academic potential as well as feeling happy and enthusiastic.
