Our Sports Leaders this term have helped run after school clubs, the Year 3 and 4 inter-house competitions and the Year 5 and 6 P.E. lessons.
At the start of the year the P.E. Ambassadors conducted a survey amongst their classes to look at after-school clubs on offer. They used their results to create the Spring term club offer to provide as many suitable opportunities for their year group as possible. They have also discussed and decided the sports we will be studying after the holidays. Their next plan is to look at the activities in lessons and make changes for their classes.
Our J.R.S.Os (Junior Road Safety Officers), as part of the Buckinghamshire County Council strategy, went to a workshop to learn more about their role and how to be safe when walking to and from school. They have also been running a 10 day Winter Walk to school competition with the aim of increasing the number of children walking to school to reduce our carbon emissions. We are hoping to play our part in saving the polar ice-caps as a habitat for the animals that live in the Artic.
