Primary & Special Schools Archery June 2019

Monday 24thJune 2019 – What an exciting morning of sport at Old Priory Junior Academy. I had the pleasure of working with 16 young leaders on Friday to get them ready to deliver our PSSP Inclusion Archery event this morning. 7 teams came along to take part in our friendly competition. Children from Thornbury, Old Priory, St. Mary’s, Widewell, Plympton St. Maurice, Yealmpstone Farm and Compton all came along to learn some new skills and compete against each other. On arrival, each of the teams were introduced to the young leaders that they would be working with during the morning. The leaders introduced their groups to the equipment, took each person through some practice and then we dove straight into the competition. The challenge was to score as many points as possible with 3 arrows over a number of rounds. While they were waiting for their turn, there were Archery worksheets for the children to complete and a ‘school crest’ challenge which resulted in some very creative designs. After the highest score competition, each of the leaders took their group through some fun games and challenges. I would like to say a huge thank you to the Old Priory young leaders today for all of their hard work – you were fantastic with the children and really helped to ensure that the event ran smoothly and was enjoyed by all. Thank you as well to all of the staff that brought their teams along today – I hope that you enjoyed watching our new archers as much as I did. I look forward to seeing you all at another event very soon.
