LFC Foundation launch virtual sports day - Liverpool FC Foundation


At 9:30 the LFC Foundation and the PL Primary Stars team will be hosting our very first online Big Red School Sports Day.


The day will be a mix of fun activities for kids and families to do at home. After each activity the pupil will have the opportunity to self assess their own performance and track the progress using the form attached.


Its basically a school sports day done at home via social media. We will be using both Twitter and Facebook for this and the activities involved use household objects. So its pretty much accessible to all.
