Mansfield Town Football in the Community are delighted to be working with you on this new project ‘Race To Wembley’ as pupils from Mapplewells Primary, take on Farmilo Primary in an inter District event of Ashfield Vs Mansfield!
Between now and the end of the academic year, we’re challenging YOU to complete Mansfield Town FC’s Sky Bet League Two Journey, and earn your school advantages in an epic cup final, to take place, virtually, at Wembley Stadium!
Each school has a target of 854.4 miles to complete over the next three weeks (284.8 per week) which can be completed by either walking, running or cycling the distance OR, by taking part in our range of ‘Play to Wembley’ games, where certain achievements will equal miles, depending on age and ability. There’s something for everyone and each week we’ll your progress on our social media channels and website, where we’d love to share your photos and videos too
Here at Mapplewells we want our children to experience the wonderful world of sport, finding a love of sport and hopefully taking this love into their adult life. However, our main aim is to ensure our children live a healthy and happy life. It is impossible to fully explain the full benefits of being active and the positive impact it can have on a child's life. We want to educate our children on the importance, both physically and mentally, but we also want being active to be second nature to them, just something that they do and enjoy.
Please see the images below to see the positives sport and PE can bring to a child's life and why being active is so important.
