Year 5 left school yesterday very excited to return on Monday as our brand new Playground Leaders.
Recently, the children were joined by three girls from Gibside as they took part in Playground Leaders’ training session with Mr Dowson. During this session, the children learnt a range of new games and a set of leaderships skills essential for their latest role.
At the end of the session, they had the opportunity to practise their newly acquired skills on the Year 2 children, who seemed to greatly enjoy the opportunity.
Monday lunchtime see the start of their twice weekly responsibilities, where by each Year 5 child will work in a group of two or three to run games on the Key Stage 1 or Key Stage two to help keep the children busy and healthy during the lunch break.
