At home with Newcastle Rugby Foundation

Friday 22 January 2021

Newcastle Rugby Foundation are offering a free weekly activity programme to keep young people and families engaged during the lockdown period.

Each day, these activities will be posted on our social media pages, the links for which can be found at the bottom of this story.

Further details and downloadable resources will be available on our website from Monday morning, and keep an eye on our social media pages for updates on our upcoming learning activities.

As well as fun, physical and skill challenges, we understand the pressure on teachers and parents to keep children engaged in learning during this latest lockdown, and we want to help.

On a Wednesday and Friday morning at 10am 'Premiership Rugby Champions Learn with Us' health and numeracy lessons will be streamed live. These can be accessed for free either to watch live, or on demand by clicking here.

Home-schooling can be a struggle, and we hope that these new online lessons will help engage, educate and entertain children whilst at home.

Whether used by teachers as part of your remote lesson plans, or by parents to supplement home schooling, our aim is to help children maintain not only their levels of numeracy, but also their health.

Premiership Rugby Champions is created in association with learning technology company Aspire2Be, and supported by the Greggs Foundation, CVC Foundation and the BT Supporters Club.

Designed and delivered by Premiership Rugby Champions teachers, the live lessons will use rugby to inspire KS2 primary children to learn mathematics and PHSE.

Themed Tackling Numeracy and Tackling Health, the first week’s lessons will specifically look at 2D shapes and healthy eating.

We want to see as many of you taking part in our activity programme, you can share your efforts from your Falcons nest with us at Kingston Park by tagging us in on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
