Year 4 Maths and English Festivals
10 children from Year 4 were invited into a festival. Both weeks were a set of eight different activities we did on a rotation, one week had a focus on literacy and the other on maths.
The first week was literacy focus, some activities were fine motor skills based, run and collect words to complete a sentence in teams, who could find words quickest and football shooting aiming at correct word to start sentences.
The second week was the same set up but with maths activities, they did long jump measurements and making digital time with lolly sticks, measuring perimeter of shapes (running to collect shapes) and running to sums to solve as quick as possible in teams.
We loved it!

Autumn 2022 Update
The School Games aims to provide every child with a positive experience in an environment where the young person’s motivation, competence and confidence are at the centre of the competition.
What is the vision?
The School Games will continue to make a clear and meaningful difference to the lives of even more children and young people.
What is the mission?
Putting physical activity and competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.
The School Games consists of four unique types of competition:
An intra-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between pupils who attend the same school. For example, this can be in the form of a class vs. class or house activity. These competitions should culminate in an annual School Games Day, or Sports Day, to celebrate a school's sporting success.
A local inter-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between schools from the same area - either as a one-off fixture or as part of a league. These competitions may act as qualifiers for county finals or can be run as developmental competitions or festival events to meet the needs of a local area.
