On the International Day of Families between 18th - 22nd May, Crawley Town Community Foundation partnered with EFL Trust and Ferrero to launch the ‘Joy of Moving Home School Festival’, a full afternoon of home school activity and games to get children and their families moving and have some fun.
Following the launch of the new online Joy of Moving Resource Hub, the Home School Festival will involve all 72 other EFL Trust network Club Community Organisations and at a time when children are unlikely to experience the fun of their school sports day this year or missing play time with their friends, with different games and activities to choose from.
The Joy of Moving programme, a Ferrero CSR project, has been supporting Year 5 children across EFL Communities in the UK for the past 6 years. The Joy of Moving programme has consisted of two elements; the Move & Learn programme and Joy of Moving Festivals. Over 310,000 children have been introduced to moving and learning new skills whilst having fun and playing.
The games and activities are based on the unique Joy of Moving methodology, developed by Ferrero with key independent parties including Foro Italico (Rome University) and the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI). This methodology inspires children to move through play across the world, whilst developing key skills in four major areas: physical fitness, motor coordination, cognitive functions and creativity and life skills.
Over the last week we launched The Joy of Moving Home School Festival, sharing the activities with 7 schools across Sussex, Surrey and London with over 300 children participating.
