Fit2Last

Fit2Last is a fun and interactive educational programme that we can deliver at the football club or an adapted version in school.

The programme teaches primary aged pupils the benefits of sport and recreation, health and wellbeing, and sustainability through tailored sessions at The New Lawn.

All the activities have been designed in line with the National Curriculum across the Key Stage groups, with a focus on physical education, humanities, technology and science subjects.

An example session may include activities on:

A welcome to FGR – our story so far

A look behind the scenes of a professional football club

Information on a vegan diet and healthy eating 

A multi-skills practical session or a practical making matchday food session

A sustainability session including reference to wind and solar power

The innocent New Lawn Eco trail

Certificates presentation

We can deliver bespoke Fit2Last sessions in line with your curriculum focus. We can also adapt the programme delivery for secondary aged pupils.

What do you take home?

Every child receives a Fit2Last Certificate, and will leave with a greater understanding about how to become a young Green Briton and will learn and apply key National Curriculum skills in a new, fun and interactive way and in the context of a working professional football club. 

We hope to inspire everyone that takes part to do more at home and at school for the environment and to become a ‘Young Green Briton’, while also teaching the importance and fun that sport can bring.

Ecotours

We also offer a journey around FGR’s innocent New Lawn stadium and Eco Trail as a standalone session, pitched at a level suitable to the group or individual visiting.
