During the summer term, Year 5/6 were given the opportunity to train as Play Leaders and be earn the 'Young Leaders' award. This award helps children develop their leadership skills and be organised, take responsibility when working with others and communicate effectively. These are all core skills that they will use throughout life. The children spent the morning learning theory about PACE (Participants, Area, Communication, Equipment) and FAST (Fun, Activity, Safety, Teamwork). The afternoon was spent designing games that reflected all the principles they learnt in the morning and couple be adapted for the different age groups in our school. They all worked very hard, and received a certificate to acknowledge their well-earned award. Now every lunchtime, you will see our Play Leaders proudly wearing their yellow vests, creating games and sports for all the children to join in and enjoy!
