A real example
In Worcester, primary schools are benefiting from an initiative designed by the University of Worcester involving local sports teams. The Worcester Wolves basketball team visited the schools twice a week, spending one session playing sport and the other focusing on study. The children used what they had done in the sports sessions as the example for English and Maths-related questions.
This vibrant, easy-to-use resource pack consists of:
- a Maths activities CD-ROM
- an English activities CD-ROM
- a guidance booklet.
The English CD-ROM contains activities on writing, spelling, reading and comprehension, and sets creative tasks such as writing a story or designing an advert for their local sports day.
The Maths CD-ROM prompts children to solve numerical problems, within a sporting context, using a variety of methods such as analysing graphs, charts and tables; calculating fractions, percentages, probability and ratio; understanding integers, space and measurements; and much more.
The guidance booklet is full of information on how to arrange partnerships with local universities and FE/HE colleges, and tips on how you can get your local sports heroes involved in supporting and mentoring your pupils during lessons.
