We have a range of new after school clubs available to our children, some of which are run by external organisations, such as Judo, ballet, table tennis and multi sports. We hope that the greater variety on offer will further promote children’s continued interest in extra curricular physical activity and so far the feedback from the children has been extremely positive!
We have begun training our Year 5 children to be Playground Leaders at lunchtimes. The aim is for these children to provide enjoyable, sporting activities for the rest of the children during their lunch hour, as well as to improve their leadership skills. We have had a variety of activities led by these fantastic role models, having introduced a new timetable of organised games within both playgrounds at lunchtimes to further reinforce our mission statement. These include sports such as netball and football in the key stage 2 playground and popular playground games in the key stage one playground. These have proved highly successful in ensuring children are active and occupied throughout.
