Sky Living for Sports Leaders have been in their third week of primary school visits and have been doing Cordeaux Academy proud!
The Leaders have been into Kidgate, Grimoldby and Tetford to teach orienteering skills, map reading, compass points and of course lots of running, communication and team work.
Grimoldby were the first school to make a return visit to try their hand at new age kurling, and in addition to this they have had six dancers going to Marshchapel and Grainthorpe to teach KS1 and KS2 pupils dances for a forthcoming dance festival.
The academy says it has been a pleasure to see the Year 9 pupils ‘growing in confidence and more importantly really enjoying being a role-model and mentor for the younger pupils’.
There are three more weeks of primary school visits and then the group are into Cordeaux’s very own festival season, with a Dance Festival at Marshchapel and New Age Kurling, Orienteering and Goalball Festivals following closely behind - watch out Glastonbury!
Back in November Casey Stoney visited for the day to work with Cordeaux’s Sky Living for Sports students.
Cordeaux have thirty-seven Year 9 pupils on the programme this year, and Casey prepared them for what was to come in the next few months.
Casey, who is currently playing football for Nottingham Belles as well as being England Captain, is Athlete Mentor. She was paying a return visit to Cordeaux which is a real privilege for the Academy and provides a great role model for the pupils.
