On Wednesday 17th November Newton Abbot College hosted a key stage 1 Multi Skills festival at the College to students from a range of local primary schools.
In total there were over 180 students who took part in the festival throughout the day.
During the festival the students took part in a carousel of seven different activity stations which all had a different focus. The key concepts of the day were for the primary students to develop their throwing, catching, running, jumping and hitting skills. In addition to this the students also developed their team working skills through some competitive activities.
PE teacher Mr Patchett said “what a fantastic day of sporting activity we had. The students were fully engaged and focused throughout. They really seemed to embrace the opportunity to visit the college and take part in a range of multi skills activities. I really hope that these children are able to take these activities back to school and play them during their own time in the playground. Hopefully these children will have developed their confidence when it comes to performing basic skills such as running, throwing, jumping and catching. Seeing so many children taking part all at the same time is hugely exciting, we are very fortunate to be able to provide this service to our local schools”
