It's time to take part in our Sensory Adventure Walk...
New to the Worcestershire School Games this academic year is a Sensory Adventure Walk! This is a virtual opportunity open to pupils of all ages, and targets those pupils with sensory impairments and/or Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
The aim of the event is to challenge the different senses of smell, sight, touch and sound through a Sensory Adventure Walk. This can take place on your playground; school field; Forest School area; at a local park or other local green space/nature reserve.
To enter schools should complete and return a data collection sheet for participants, along with some feedback from their adventures! The deadline for entries is Friday 26th November, following which schools will receive certificates and be entered into a prize draw to win an Orienteering Starter Equipment Kit.
Invites have been sent to all schools across Worcestershire, along with a Festival Plan (containing lots of useful ideas, top tips, images and audio recordings) and a data collection sheet - all of which can be downloaded below.
Worcestershire Skip Hop Challenges - now live!
New to the Worcestershire School Games this academic year, is Skipping! There are numerous benefits that can be gained through skipping, these include:
- improving health and fitness,
- developing fundamental movement skills,
- improving self-esteem, confidence and determination,
- Teamwork and communication skills through interaction in practice sessions.
We wanted to harness the power of the School Games, to develop these in young people from across the county, through our Skip Hop Challenges, which are open to all age groups from Reception through to Year 13. We hope they will challenge each pupil to achieve their Personal Best, and to be the best they can be!
All Virtual Skip Hop Challenges can be downloaded below. Schools have until 1pm on Friday 26th November 2021 to submit their entries using the competition scoresheets provided. All results will be announced on Wednesday 1st December. Good luck!

Worcestershire Virtual Summer School Games 2021
Whilst the summer was looking positive for events, we made the decision to keep the Summer School Games virtual. This term (summer 2021), we wanted to harness the power of sport and physical activity, to unite all schools and bring children and young people back together with our very special Paralympic themed challenges.
The Worcestershire Summer School Games 2021 was open to all pupils from reception all the way up to year 11 that attend a school in Worcestershire, and consisted of challenges linked to the Paralympic sports of Goalball, Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Tennis and Football.
The focus was to provide pupils with an opportunity to:
- be back together;
- try something new;
- take part in friendly competition;
- learn more about the Paralympic Games and Values;
- achieve their personal best;
- represent their school;
- be physically active and;
- have fun!
We have been thrilled with the uptake and feedback from schools, and in particular the fantastic pics and videos shared on our social media #WorcsVirtualSG -
For those schools that still wish to give the challenges a try, the Competition Pack can still be accessed below.
