Get Set's new resource, the Mascot Challenge, helps students to create their own mascot design for ParalympicsGB, for the chance to see it displayed at ParalympicsGB House in the athletes’ village at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games! (Now being held in the summer of 2021!)
"The resource has great links with PSHE. The ParalympicsGB element is very appropriate for the mutual respect and inclusion parts of PSHE and the British values work done in school."
Mr K Corral, Teacher
With differentiated resources for primary and secondary age groups, the resources are split into two parts, the first exploring Olympic and Paralympic mascots – their purpose, design and meaning – and the second focusing on the challenge of creating an original mascot for ParalympicsGB – exploring the ParalympicsGB brand, their athletes, what it represents and guiding students through the design process.
The resources are designed to be flexible, so either part can be used independently, whether in an assembly or in the classroom, or can be combined to allow students a broader understanding of mascots from around the world and the Paralympic Movement. Each resource includes optional active learning tasks, helping to minimise sedentary classroom behaviour and engage students in their learning.
"I really like the active parts of the PowerPoints. These would be an ideal way to link to the active nature of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which works nicely in this assembly about the Games."
Mr L Sturrock, Teacher
