Multi Skills Festival

Posted: 7th March 2017

Reception pupils from our feeder primary schools recently spent some time with year 9 Sports Leaders enjoying some new and exciting physical activities in the Academy Sports Hall. The youngsters had loads of fun and learnt many new skills, helped and encouraged by our young leaders. The year 9s did a spectacular job helping the smaller children get the hang of some brand new activites, while giving heaps of encouragement to ensure it was all fun, fun, fun! We even had a fire drill while they were here, and the Sports Leaders quickly and efficiently escorted the reception pupils to the muster area on the Artificial Grass Pitch. That certainly lent some extra excitement to proceedings.

All in all, a fabulous time was had by all; well done to all participants and everyone who helped out. This type of event takes place frequently at Braunton Academy. As well as allowing primary pupils to experience a wider range of sporting equipment and facilities, they also become more familiar with the secondary school environment, smoothing the transition process which comes at the end of year 6.
