Year 6 Playground Leaders Training

Well done to our 10 playground leaders who underwent some specific training on Wednesday morning on the MUGA with Fiona Callaghan, the School Games Organiser for the Pendle School Sport Partnership. Fiona taught the children some playground games to ensure all the younger children in the school are kept active and busy at break and dinner times. These children will now be looking to organize games each break time and will also be in charge of keeping all sports equipment safe on a daily basis. The children all did fantastic and Fiona said their behaviour was magnificent all throughout the training. Well done leaders!
