As we gear up for a summer of excitement with the Paris 2024 Olympics, it’s the perfect time to bring that sporting spirit into your school setting. Our summer package is designed to introduce children to this global event and give them a chance to try a range of activities they wouldn’t get to try in their normal PE.
Let’s dive into three other reasons why your school should take part in our Paris 2024 programme:
Raising the Profile of PE:
At the heart of our Paris 2024 Summer package is a commitment to elevating the status of PE within your school. By aligning PE with the Olympic Games, we aim to underline the importance of an active lifestyle and the role it plays in child development. Paris 2024 provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the significance of physical activity in fostering teamwork, discipline, and perseverance – values that extend far beyond the sports field.
The infusion of Olympic-themed activities and event can really raise the appeal of PE among pupils, making it a highlight of their school experience.
Promoting the Health and Wellbeing of Children:
Physical activity is important for the overall development of children, promoting cardiovascular health, muscular strength, and coordination. Our carefully considered package not only includes traditional sports but also integrates alternative activities inspired by Olympic events.
Engaging in these diverse activities not only keeps the students physically active but also introduces them to a range of sports, encouraging them to discover new interests. This exposure can help lay the foundation for a lifelong commitment to physical fitness, promoting good habits. Additionally, adding in games inspired by the Paralympics helps to create wider awareness about inclusivity and adaptation, breaking down barriers and making sure everyone can partake.
Enriching Opportunities for Cross-Curricular Learning:
By integrating Olympic themes into subjects like PE, geography, history, and even mathematics, students gain a multidimensional understanding of the cultural and historical significance of the Games.
This cross-curricular approach not only enriches their learning experience but also fosters a sense of connection to the wider world. Students can explore the geography of France, delve into the history of the Olympic Games, and even apply mathematical concepts to sports. Such immersive learning experiences not only make education more engaging, but also to help provide a sense of curiosity and critical thinking.
“We have been running our Summer Programmes since Tokyo 2020, and I have loved seeing the children enjoying and joining in with sports that they don’t always get to do in their normal curriculum. With these Summer Programmes, I see children try and explore new sports that they have never done before, for example Boccia, Archery, Fencing and so much more. It heightens the atmosphere for the Olympic games but expands their knowledge on the country and history.” – Nick Menning, Team Leader at ActiveMe 360.
Our Paris 2024 programme is more than just a sports programme; it’s a unique approach to education that aims to elevate the profile of PE, enhance the health and wellbeing of children, and provide enriching opportunities for cross-curricular learning. By choosing this summer programme, your school not only reinforces its commitment to physical fitness but also lays the groundwork for well-rounded, engaged, and curious pupils who are ready to face the challenges of the future. Let us make the Paris 2024 Olympics a catalyst for positive change in the lives of your students!
