funetics release free Home School Pack

Are you a parent, teacher or carer looking for different ways to help inspire primary school aged children to get active and to support their curriculum learning at the same time, during these challenging times?

The free-to-download funetics Home School Pack (DOWNLOAD HERE) not only helps you teach the fundamental life skills of running, jumping and throwing but also gives children the opportunity to practice academic skills using sport as a foundation.

Based on the new funetics programme from England Athletics, the Home School pack provides fun athletics sessions to help 4-11 year old children stay active and learn in ways which reflect the requirements of the National Curriculum Key Stage 1 and 2. Which in turn, is based on the award-winning framework of our Athletics 365 courses for young athletes.

We are proud to be able to produce a unique resource which not only teaches the fundamental life skills of running, jumping and throwing but which gives children the opportunity to practise academic skills using sport as a foundation.
