Year 5 Playground Leader Training
Some of our year 5 footballers have been experiencing a few difficulties with their games and Lee from Accrington Stanley has been in to observe them play and offer advice about how they can deal with issues - Hopefully this will help the children manage their own games of football during break and lunchtimes.
Some of the ideas Lee suggested:
Different captains choose the teams each day and others accept the team they are on.
If agreement cannot be made about a decision - drop ball
Play starts from the goalie after a goal.
Rock, paper, scissors to decide who kicks off and to sort out any disagreements

G.U.L.P (Give Up Loving Pop)
Accrington Stanley have spent three weeks working with year 3 on the G.U.L.P project. Time has been spent in the classroom learning about keeping healthy before taking part in physical activity outside.
Daily Active Mile
Every class takes part in the Daily Active Mile and it is great to see the children's progress with this.
As part of Big Pedal 2021 children were encouraged to make active journeys to school by either walking, scootering or cycling. We were very impressed with the number of children who took part in this initiative.
