Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics
With Team GB having so many successes in the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic games, we thought it was only right that we create a video celebrating these achievements and in doing so, inspire pupils to try a new sport themselves.
As our ‘Who am I’ fact videos are a popular addition to playlists, we’ve made special Olympic and Paralympic versions, with facts about Olympic and Paralympic heroes. These videos are available instantly in the library, just search ‘Olympics’ or ‘Paralympics’ to see the selection. Drop these videos into your playlists to inspire pupils to follow in the footsteps taken by these individuals to become Olympic and Paralympic heroes!
Activate Camps: Netball
Over the summer, we teamed up with Activate Camps to produce various videos which can be used to promote active learning in your schools. This month, we’re highlighting the first of our Netball series and showing an interactive sports lesson on how best to shoot and get a goal. Keep your eyes peeled for further new sports content with Activate Camps!
Mental Health: Self-esteem
It can be tough tackling your emotions as a teenager, but a positive self-esteem can work wonders. With this in mind, we’ve created a video with tips about building and maintaining a positive self-esteem. This is the first of our brand new mental health series for secondary age pupils, which aims to help teenagers understand their feelings and encourage them to speak to an adult about their emotions.
Attendance – parent reminder
Attendance is important and our video about this is always a popular choice to put in playlists. Now we’ve got a version aimed at parents to relay how important it is that their child attends school and that they could face a fine for unexplained absences. Just schedule this to play during drop off/collection time!
In addition to pre-existing content we have on our screens, schools can also request new content to meet their needs; please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s something you would like to see!
