Student company creates new activity packs to help Dacorum children learn and have fun
Tenacity is a student-run company determined to make children's lives better
Students in Hertfordshire have created new downloadable activity packs designed for primary school children to learn and have fun during the coronavirus pandemic.
Tenacity - a group of aspiring entrepreneurs from year 12 at Sandringham School, in St Albans - came together earlier this year to create online resources for parents and children in Hertfordshire.
Since its first product launch in February, the team has been working hard to create more resources for primary school children to learn with and enjoy.
Since the start of the business, the team has been focused on supporting parents with the challenging task of home-teaching by developing an affordable and entertaining, online product.
To provide parents with more choice of activities for their kids during the Easter school holiday, Tenacity has launched three new Activity Packs, covering a range of subjects.
These include the 'Art, PE and Foodtech Edition' and the ‘History, Geography and Fun Edition’ - each bursting with activities.
Due to popular demand, the team will also be releasing the ‘Tenacity Full Edition’, which includes all of the activities in the subjects released by Tenacity, so combines the English, Maths, Science, Art, PE, Foodtech, History, Geography and the fun sections.
As well as the new Activity Pack launches, Tenacity is also running a competition for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
It is challenging primary school children across Hertfordshire to write a short story of up to 500 words for Tenacity’s mascot, Terry, who is a prominent feature of the Activity Packs.
Children have been asked to write ‘An Adventure to Cheer up Terry the Tenacious Tiger’ as it seems he has been feeling a little bit down recently.
The team hopes the competition will encourage children to showcase their wonderful creative writing skills and imagination during a time when developing such skills as well as meeting with friends is still difficult.
The prizes for the lucky winners include a Terry the tiger teddy, an Easter egg, a feature on the Tenacity website and a secret prize that Tenacity will be revealing soon.
If you know a young writer who would be interested in taking part, visit the Tenacity website where you can purchase the Core Subjects Activity Pack for £1.99 which includes the competition details, as well as the official creative writing competition entry form needed to take part in the competition.
