Sainsbury’s Active Kids Paralympic Challenge 2016
Hylton class have participated in the Sainsbury’s Active Kids Paralympic Challenge on the run up to this years Paralympic Games in Rio. The aim of the project was to develop pupils skills whilst competing in inclusive activities such as Sitting Volleyball, Boccia, Goal Ball, and Visually Impaired Athletics. The class used the resources provided to plan and lead their own mini activities and then evaluated the success and tried modifying them to make them simpler or more difficult depending on how the group found the activities.
