Playground Leaders at BGN Family Schools

Cropredy and William Morris Primary Schools have both received Playground leader training this term from PE mentors, Mr Mawn and Mr Pemble.  The programme involves students in Year 5/6 leading lunch-time activities for younger children within their School. 

There are many benefits the award brings to the School including promoting a healthy lifestyle, children being more active, learning new skills and improvement in behaviour at lunch-time.  The Young leaders also have an opportunity to develop their leadership skills, confidence and self-esteem

During the training twelve Year 5 Cropredy and eleven Year 5 and 6 William Morris Young leaders spent the morning developing their leadership skills and building up a bank of fun games and activities.  Games included traffic lights, pizza game, pile up points, stuck in the mud, bean bag pick up, Simon says, hoopla and many more.   Having practised leading each other, the Young leaders had an opportunity to apply their skills by leading a Key Stage 1 class.  In both Schools the Young leaders did a fantastic job and ensured the Key Stage 1 children enjoyed the various activities. 

To ensure sustainability, the person responsible in implementing the playground leader programme within the school is also involved in the training.  This person then devises a lunch-time rota for the Young leaders and launches the event at a whole School assembly. 

The playground leader programme has already proved a big success at Cropredy School and is due to start in term 6 at William Morris.
