QE’s Gymnastic Festival Launches New Primary Sports Partnership

The all new Crediton Learning Community Primary Sports Partnership launched on Wednesday 18th October at Queen Elizabeth’s School, and gymnastics was on the menu for over 200 Year 3 & 4 students from local primary schools.

The QE Gymnastics Festival held workshops for Year 3 & 4 pupils from Landscore, Yeoford, Cheriton Bishop, Tedburn, Bow, and Sandford Primary Schools. 50 of QE’s Year 9 students hosted the event, leading a series of different activities. The Year 9 students are part of QE’s Sports Leadership Programme. The workshops they ran taught new skills to the Year 3 & 4’s such as rolling, travelling, balancing and flight.

Mr Gillon said “Our Year 9 students did a brilliant job in leading and coaching the Year 3 and 4 pupils, they were supportive, professional and entertaining, giving our visitors a great experience. Our primary school students picked up new skills really well and the event was a great success!”

The Gymnastic Festival was the first event in a series of 6, the next event will be QE’s Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby Festival which will be held on the 22nd November 2017.
