Youngsters in Burton are being invited to raise their bow and arrow as they head into combat. The Premier Education Group is working with Rykneld Primary School, in Branston, to deliver BattleZone Archery after school club from 3.15pm to 4.15pm on Thursdays. The sessions will last for seven weeks from September 14.

Battlezone Archery is a combat game which allows players to use all the skills of dodgeball but with specially made bows and arrows.

The education group is working with more than 2,500 primary schools nationwide including around 75 primary schools across Staffordshire and the West Midlands.

A spokesman said: "Our aim is to educate and activate as many children and adults as possible in order to create a healthier and happier world. One way we do this is by offering sports or activities that children haven't tried before and may engage more with than the traditional activities.

"By offering children the chance to take part in activities such as BattleZone Archery, Zorb Football and New Age Kurling we feel that we can help the young people of today become healthier, happier and more successful."
