Lunchtime Activity Club
Lunchtime Activity Club set up in 2014 with the aim of giving all pupils a more structured lunchtime during which they can access a whole range of activities such as different sports, games, imaginative play, crafts and many more things, should they wish to.
After attending an extremely interesting course (Positive Playgrounds by Jenny Mosley)......it was decided to divide our school outdoor area into different 'ZONES' and have a different activity in each of these areas – offering something for ALL pupils.
We appointed Young Leaders (KS2) to help run the activities on offer.
Prospective Young Leaders apply for their position at the start of each academic year and are interviewed by The School Council before being appointed. Each appointed Young Leader receives a special Young Leader hoodie with their name on the back so they are easily identifiable to all other pupils who may require their help and guidance.
There is a weekly Rota for them to follow ensuring everyone knows where and what their weekly responsibilities are. Each Young Leader will have experience of all the activities on offer at some point during each half term and they also have 'days off duty' regularly so they can have a rest from responsibilities. These Young Leaders receive two sessions of training from Chris Wright of Wrights Sports Services at the start of each academic year. This training is aimed at giving them the skills and confidence to independently lead activities and in doing so develop their team work, communication and leadership skills whilst at the same time promoting a healthy active lifestyle for themselves and their peers.
