Local pupils take part in sporting activities
Children from The Clare School in Norwich were treated to a surprise visit from CSF mascot Sportasaurus on Monday to celebrate National School Sport Week.
The pupils, all of whom have a range of physical and learning disabilities, took part in a variety of football-based games and activities with Sporty, followed by a fun, engaging routine as part of the Premier League and BBC’s ‘Super Movers’ campaign.
National School Sport Week encourages young people to be more active and took place from the 25th – 29th June. Last year, over 5,000 schools and 1.8 million students took part.
CSF School Sport Manager Asa Saunders said:
“It is so important to keep young people moving. Concentration skills are stimulated by playing active sports and, once developed, children can make use of them in other areas of life too – like the classroom.
“National School Sport Week is a great time to celebrate PE, and encourage pupils to build healthy habits that stick with them for life. We’re delighted to be able to give these children an opportunity to access sport and exercise, and we hope they continue to keep active both inside and outside of school.”
Celebrations continued yesterday as 120 young pupils from CSF partner school Charles Darwin Primary got active (and competitive!) at their school sports day, hosted by the Foundation.
The youngsters enjoyed a number of field and track activities.
