Other news

Friday 20th March is the Active Play through storytelling course in the morning and then the Girls Football club training course in the afternoon. To date, I only have 1 school which has shown any interest.  This is a really useful course for helping beginner girls to develop their physical literacy through the use of Disney – Incredibles 2,  Aladdin and Guardians of the Galaxy..  Please try to get someone from your school to attend,  Particularly for KS 1 in the morning.  the same person can stay all day or you can swap people for the afternoon. Please let me know by email if you have someone attending either or both sessions.  The closing date is Friday 13th March and I will then make a decision as to whether there are enough people to make the course viable.
