The Sports Leaders at St Michael’s RC Primary School are made up of a group of Key Stage 2 children. Their main role is to help make our playground a more active playground by setting up and running different activities each lunchtime.
The Sports Leaders meet regularly with Mr Storey to come up with new ideas to enable children from all across school to take part in sports games or challenges at lunchtime, both competitive and non-competitive. The children also help Mr Storey maintain the condition of the sports equipment by making sure it is put away correctly at the end of each session.
The Sports Leaders have their own ideas on activities which can be played at lunchtimes, but have also been asking around school for ideas from other classes of games they would like to play at lunchtimes too. They also check with Mr Storey which topic each class is doing in PE to enable the children to have some extra time to practice their skills and improve.
At St Michael’s RC Primary School, we want to make sure that our children are not just more active, but are having fun when playing outside and we believe that with the help of our fantastic Sports Leaders, we can achieve that.
