PREMIERSHIP RUGBY CHAMPIONS LAUNCH ONLINE LESSONS TO HELP PRIMARY CHILDREN
***Premiership Rugby Champions launch weekly maths and PHSE lessons to make learning more fun and engage primary children in physical activity while they learn from home***
Wooden Spoon partner, Premiership Rugby has launched an innovative and engaging platform to help parents and teachers with home schooling.
From Wednesday 20 January, Premiership Rugby Champions Learn with Us lessons will be streamed live, every Wednesday and Friday at 10.00am to support parents and teachers in keeping children engaged with learning. The live lessons will use rugby to inspire KS2 primary children to learn mathematics and PHSE.
Based around sport, the lessons are designed to bring learning to life in a short, fun and interactive way, engaging primary school age children in both numeracy and health and well-being during this current school term.
With the decline in physical activity levels as well as learning in core subjects amongst young children being widely reported, lessons are designed to help reduce the impact further by making learning engaging and fun for both parents and children alike. Themed Tackling Numeracy and Tackling Health – this week’s lessons will specifically look at 2D shapes and healthy eating.
Premiership Rugby Champions has been helping teachers deliver fun sessions both within the classroom and at home through their app and downloadable resources since 2019.
The content has been created with the help of expert learning technology company Aspire 2Be, with experienced Premiership Rugby Champions teachers and trainers presenting the lessons online.
Wayne Morris, Premiership Rugby Community and CSR Director, said:
“Premiership Rugby is passionate about improving the lives and prospects of children and young people across England, using the power of rugby to inspire the current generation to learn, be active and to help them achieve their potential.”
“We understand the pressure on parents to keep children engaged in learning during this latest lockdown, and we want to help. Home schooling can be challenging and we hope that these lessons will offer parents some support and help them to both educate and entertain their children at home.”
The lessons can be accessed for free either to watch live, or on demand via www.premiershiprugby.com/learnwithus. The lessons will be streamed live twice a week until the February half term break, with the potential to continue should schools remain closed.
