Today all of our Year 5 & 6 pupils were trained by Michael Frayne, our borough school games organiser to become Playground leaders.

This will enable them to set up games and activities during break and lunchtimes to engage in play with the younger years. The course started with learning about the qualities a good leaders would need to run a fun session. The pupils gave some heartwarming accounts of leaders that they admired.

The classes also played a game where they had to name popular role models within the sporting world. Finally they put their knowledge into practice. They set up games in small groups and learned how to differentiate to challenge all abilities using differing rules and equipment.

Well done to all involved, Mr Frayne was impressed with your knowledge and compassionate understanding of the needs of others.
