What the governing body of archery (Archery GB) have to say about Arrows Archery:
Launched in September 2012, Arrows has been created for primary schools to introduce young children to archery in a fun and safe way. It has been designed to be delivered by teachers and sports co-ordinators who have no formal archery experience or qualification.
This 'mini' version of archery provides teachers with child-friendly equipment and resources to get you started quickly and easily. Simple ideas for activities and competitions are provided that can be used in PE lessons, across the curriculum, in out of hours clubs, and as part of the School Games. The equipment and resources provided make it possible for teachers to deliver archery in almost any setting in school.
We have produced eight different activity cards for Arrows. These make it possible to introduce archery concepts and skills through fun activities rather than technical instruction. The activities enable you to use archery as a way of encouraging learning in other areas; for example, maths through scoring, literacy through language, and citizenship through cooperation and self-discipline. They are designed to be flexible enough for teachers to adapt them depending on the ability and age of the group. These activities provide an alternative and complementary way of developing movement skills (e.g. coordination, balance, and strength), personal, social, and mental skills, as well as archery skills.
We hope that once young people have experienced the fun and active archery games at school through Arrows, they will be enthused to have a go at the traditional sport of archery. A competitive festival format is included with Arrows and this is the suggested competition format for the primary School Games.
