Primary Stars taught about Fair Play
Our Premier League Primary Stars project this week hosted a collapsed curriculum day with three local schools revolving around the subject of ‘playing the right way’.
Held in three separate schools, our Primary Stars coaches delivered the events to Melin, Neath Abbey and Coedffranc Primary with the aim of raising awareness about playing fairly and what that entails.
As well as an assembly on the topic, individual classes then took it in turns to learn more about playing the right way and putting what they learnt into practice in an array of different activities.
“Delivering these collapsed curriculum days with focussed assemblies was a great opportunity for us to work with nearly all the children in the school delivering sessions about what it means to play the right way,” said the Community Trust’s Education Manager, Thomas Williams.
“Playing the right way encompasses being respectful to others, giving positive encouragement and being fair. These are really important messages that reflect the ethos of the Premier League Primary Stars programme,” he continued.
One class from Melin Primary is Neath was also treated to a visit from club legend, Lee Trundle who conducted a ‘Fair Play Q&A’ where they asked him questions about the subject and how it relates to football, as well as normal life, including good sportsmanship, encouraging your team mates and being respectful to others.
