Sky Blues in the Community will welcome their counterparts from MK Dons this Saturday, as the + Sport Move and Learn project is celebrated.

There will be a 6-a-side match on the pitch at half time between two team of 9-10 year old kids, representing the Sky Blues and the Dons. 

The third year of the +Sport Move and Learn Project was launched earlier this year, in partnership with Ferrero and the EFL Trust.

The project is part of Ferrero’s global Kinder + Sport initiative, designed to encourage children to be active, while helping them to understand the importance of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle. 

To date, the programme has been delivered locally in 55 schools, with 3,687 children impacted. To build on this success, this year another 30 schools and 1,800 children will be reached.

Over the course of six weeks, children from Year 5 classes spend 45 minutes in the classroom learning about the body, nutrition and the importance of exercise, through participating in interactive activities. The second half of the 90 minute session is dedicated to playing football, dodgeball or handball, with two weeks spent on each sport. 

The first schools that have taken part this year are Ernesford, Howes, Mount Nod and St John’s C of E Primary School and there are opportunities for many more local schools to sign up over the 2016/2017 academic year.
