School Children to Get on Board with Mayflower

Argyle Community Trust is gearing up for the Mayflower 400 commemorations taking place in the city during 2020 by stimulating and coordinating a year-long calendar of sporting activity.

A key feature of this activity calendar is the newly titled ‘Sporting Voyage’ educational programme which is aimed at Year 5 and 6 children initially, during the upcoming academic year.

The programme itself consists of 6 weeks of both classroom and activity based sessions which combine sport, history and religion. Given the importance of the upcoming commemorations within the city, we are incredibly excited as a Trust to be able to commit to offering an amazing educational opportunity which is free of charge to any school.

The first two weeks of the programme will consist of classroom based sessions that use custom made resources such as videos and specially made booklets. The course provides participants with a host of activities and homework tasks to reinforce the learning they will undertake during the sessions.

The remaining four sessions will consist of American sport delivery from our coaching team and wider Mayflower 400 partners.

We are looking to begin to embed this programme in schools as of October 2019, if you would like to involve your schools and take part in the ‘Sporting Voyage’ programme, please contact: alice.young@pafc.co.uk | 01752 562561 ext 4.
