Today we trialled an “Active Club” at lunchtime for Year 3/4 children and it was fantastic! A special mention to Alice, who was an excellent pacer for me (not mentioning that she then had enough left in the tank for both a sprint finish and an additional lap… !)
We’d like to trial this again tomorrow lunchtime with Class 4 (Year 5/6) but, because it’s not their usual PE day, they will need to bring in a change of footwear please. These can be kept in the cloakroom and then taken home at the end of the day as they’ll need to wear them again on Friday.
This is a positive way of encouraging the children to be active during the school day and we hope to be able to extend it to younger children in the coming days as well.
