Y6 Sports Leadership

Year 6 are putting their 'Sports Leadership,' accreditation to good use...

After an intensive coaching course from AMVC Year 6 have finally had the opportunity to put their PE skills and knowledge to good use.  Year 6 children are encouraged to cascade the learning they have received throughout their time at Northborough School, and the additional training they have received has enabled them to lead groups of younger children in a variety of games activities.  Each teaching team of four sports leaders alternate leading activities in pairs to groups of eight or nine Y1/2 children.  This is proving to be an extremely valuable experience, encouraging the older children to reflect upon their own skills and expertise and adapt to the needs of others.  A session typically lasts for up to half an hour, and consists of warm-up activities, fun games and skills work.  So far the feedback from the younger children is positive - despite the cold weather!  Further sessions are due to follow in the Spring and Summer terms.  Well done to all children in years 1, 2 and 6.
