A selection of Key Stage 1 & 2 children (selected due to their current needs). Have had the opporuntity to enjoy a fencing club with Premier Sports.
The vision for the club is to develop the children’s confidence, self-esteem and team work. Fencing allows children to compete on an equal playing field so they can excel in different areas of physical activity.
The children will also learn how to develop leadership and communication skills which can be taken back into the classroom enviroment.
In the first week, the children had the opportunity to learnt the position of en garde and practised footwork techniques.
