On Friday 10th November, the Nutfield Church Year 6 Sports Leaders had a great morning at St Bede’s School, finding out how to teach games and sports to other children. They learned lots of different skills and decided that probably the most important skill of all needed for a Sports Leader is teamwork.
During the training, they had lots of chances to practise their teamwork, especially when making up a new game to teach to the Sports Leaders who were there from other schools. The children also learnt about the Spirit of the Game Values – determination, respect, honesty, teamwork, passion and self-belief – and they will be trying to include them in their leadership work and encouraging everybody else to do the same.
The Nutfield Church Sports Leaders left the training with a challenge from the organisers – Active Surrey – to plan and run a sports event in school before the end of term. With the support of Miss Woods and the teachers, they are organising a Run XC event on the afternoon of Friday 15th December, when all the children at school from Reception to Year 6 will take part in a fun Christmas themed cross-country activity.
