Academic Learning Through Sporting Heritage
Sports Inspire Educational Publishing creates rich academic resources that educate children about sport and social history, key social issues and personal development, simultaneously developing their literacy and numeracy skills.
The power of sport is particularly effective in motivating under-achieving, ‘difficult to reach’ children.
What We Do
Using the power of sport, our resources make connections between sporting history and:
◦ British social history
◦ World history
◦ Moral issues
◦ Contemporary issues such as integration, equality and climate change
◦ The personal qualities of inspirational sporting role models and the personal development of the learners
Since 2007, Sports Inspire has researched, written and piloted education resources
for the following professional and amateur sports clubs and sporting heritage organisations.
Classroom and Home Learning Resources
Our learning materials use the power of sport to engage children with social history, moral issues and the development of cross- curricular knowledge and skills.
We deliver inspirational assemblies that use powerful stories from sporting history. Our assemblies engage and educate children in social history and related issues of fair play, teamwork, equal opportunities, racism, physical impairments, mental health and remembrance.
Historical Resources For Sports Clubs
Sports clubs are often among the best examples of living history in their communities. We help clubs to research, write and promote education resources based on their histories, celebrating and building awareness of their role and standing in the local community.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
These schemes are truly cross-curricular. They have great potential for motivating under-achieving children and for inspiring the fans of the future.
