Lancashire School Games
2020: Year 6 children were once again invited to write a pledge for the Lancashire youth Games. As last year, our brief was to create a piece of written work in the form of a pledge, poem or oath which is inspired by sport, in particular the Olympic and Schools Games and their values.
This year, we were thrilled to hear that Amaani's work was chosen by HRVSSP as the Ribble Valley entry. Unfortunately due to COVID 19, the youth games could not go ahead in its usual format and so Amaani was asked to record her pledge for social media. Her pledge can be found below.
2019:Year 6 were invited to participate in a competition between local schools. Our brief was to create a piece of written work in the form of a pledge, poem or oath which is inspired by sport, in particular the Olympic and Schools Games and their values.
Years 5 and 6 all participated, but Imaan from Year 5 produced a brilliant poem and this was sent into the schools partnership as Balderstone's entry. We were then thrilled to be informed that her entry had been selected for the Ribble Valley and was being entered into the borough competition for the Youth Games. Imaan was invited as a VIP guest to the event and treated to lunch, a tour and she was given a published version of her poem. She also received a trophy for her work.
