This Girl Can

This Girl Can

Watch the campaign’s video

Sport England have created a new campaign call ‘This Girl Can’ to encourage girls and women to participate in sporting activities and get active. Many women feel unmotivated and put off sport due to  low self esteem about their body image and how sport makes you look. The ‘This Girl Can’ campaign aims to tell girls to embrace the sweat and participate to feel good no matter shape or size. They say the campaign is: Here to inspire women and prove that judgement is a barrier that can be overcome.

If you are interested in starting a new sport or getting active here are some local options you could try. Click on the links for more information.

“Shall we find out ?…”

A few skeptical faces emerged from the crowd..Pass The Parcel?

Well, …we’ll give a try…hey I got a prize..!

As the music ebbed and flowed, the huge newspaper wrapped parcel moved swiftly from eager fingers. Cross-curriculum using Literacy was in the form of a book cover from a classic book taped to the front of each parcel, getting the girls used to seeing different authors.

When unwrapped, each parcel had a small prize and a Geography question.
