Both Heatherley and St Mary Magdalene are the latest schools to participate in our Premier League Primary Stars programme.
Both children and staff will experience a 6 week block of work consisting of football themed activities both in and outside the classroom.
The children are engaged in fun football lessons where they will learn fundamentals of the game such as passing, dribbling, shooting, heading etc all in the form of small sided games.
The teaching staff will gain valuable CPD hours as part of this programme. They will gain support where needed as well as improve their confidence of delivering PE and School Sport.
Jade Lee, Year 3 teacher at St Mary Magdalene has said ” I am looking forward to working with Mansfield Town FITC. My PE background is in dance, gymnastics and hockey but not in football so I am eager to learn what Gaz has got to offer ”
” I like to learn through practice and writing notes down. I am looking for Gaz to advise me on basic skills, so starting from the beginning. I am a bit of a blank canvas when it comes to football. “
