'Sporting Voyage' UPDATE:
It has been 5-months since the launch of our Sporting Voyage educational programme. We have delivered the programme to over 2,859 pupils across Plymouth, who have either taken part in the 6-week programme, the day offer or a whole school assembly.
A unique and engaging education programme, which combines sport, history and religion. We have thoroughly enjoyed delivering this programme as part of the Mayflower 400 commemorations in 2020.
See some of the feedback we have received from schools across Plymouth:
The published materials were excellent and included homework tasks to further the children's enjoyment and understanding. A good variety of sports were included in the practical sessions.
Boringdon Primary School
The Mayflower Voyage is an integral part of Plymouth's history. The workshops linked perfectly with our geography curriculum whilst adding impact to engineering of Plymouth, past and present. The children were engaged and thoroughly enjoyed the PE lessons.
Holy Cross Primary School
The children learnt some important historical information using resources they could relate to. This was then linked to American sports which they very much enjoyed!
