Year 5/6 School Sport Champion: Leadership Training

Our first ever Year 5/6 School Sport Champion Leadership Training took place earlier this week, a fantastic day hosted by Thorp Academy. Five Primary School's from Thorp's cluster took part (Highfield, Greenside, Rowlands Gill, Emmaville and Parkhead) with the aim of the programe was to provide Year 5/6 pupils with the skills and knowledge required to plan and deliver activities.

Year 7/8 Thorp Academy Leaders supported this event and lead a carousel of 6 activities (Space, task, equipment, people, communication, safety) encorporating the importance of each when planning an activity.

In the afternoon the Year 5/6 pupils were given the opportunity to put the skills they learnt in to practice. Choosing from a number of activities they planned and delivered it to one another and they done so exceptionally well.

Thank you to Thorp Academy and their young leaders and well done to all of the particpants who have each recieved a recognsied Sports Leaders UK-Play Maker Award.
