Year 3/4 Tennis Festival – Melbourn
17 May from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
FOR ALL, TARGETED, COMPETITIVE
All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.
FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.
COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This is a TARGETED event for quieter children in Year 3/4 who lack social skills and/or confidence. The aim of this event is to support children’s social and emotional development.
A key objective of the Year 3&4 Tennis Festival is to introduce new players to the game of tennis and to offer these young people a positive experience in which they will be inspired to continue playing the sport in the future. The event is for young people who are beginners or are new to the game of tennis it is not suitable for those who already play.
The festival will provide children with the opportunity to take part in a range of different fundamental tennis based skills challenges with the focus on fun and personal challenge. Children will take part as a team and rotate around the different skills challenges scoring points for their school.
