Event - SoccerAid Playground Challenge

18 June 2019

On Tuesday 18th June football fever hit Saint Anne’s School.

Before the big event our Year 6’s planned their own obstacles, created posters for advertising and completed risk assessments to ensure the activities were safe.

Tuesday 18th June the whole school arrived in their football shirts, kits or favourite football team colours and took part in the SoccerAid for Unicef Playground Challenge which were four different obstacle courses set up by Year 6 and saw pupils participate in football skill drills, agility drills and mathematical puzzles.

Throughout the day all classes took part in classroom challenges as well which included making pledges, debated children's rights, took part in discussions about Unicef and the work they do and produced poems and fantastic art work thinking about the toys we receive and the freedom we have to play compared to some children who are less fortunate.

We also used the day to raise money for Unicef to help in their appeal to provide life-saving food and vaccines, life-changing education and to provide games, toys and books to allow more children be children and help children learn through play.

Our final fundraising total was £239.60.
