About the programme

Shooting Stars is a programme created in partnership with the FA, Disney and the Youth Sport Trust.

Active Play Through Storytelling (for Key Stage 1), uses specially adapted Disney stories, including The Incredibles and Frozen, to lead girls through a series of physical activities and challenges. Sessions are based on the KS1 English and PE curriculum and help girls aged 5 to 8 improve their physical, speaking and listening skills.
