Supporting sport and activities at playtime.

As you are probably aware we operate zoned areas on the playground during break times, each supervised by a member of staff. These include, a small equipment activity zone,  a ‘craze of the day zone’ such as volleyball, separate KS1  and KS2  running areas, and a chill-out and chat zone.

At morning and afternoon break times, KS1 and KS2 have separate playtimes. Lunchtime is a joint playtime.  During this time some of our wonderful and industrious children also offer their own activity clubs. We are also delighted that, as from next week, using some of our Sports Premium funding, we will also be offering additional sporting opportunities, particularly for our KS1 children at lunchtime. Ms Hillam will be running some fun sports challenges from 12.30 – 1 pm each day, supported by some of our older children trained as sports leaders. Children from Reception to Y2 will rotate on a daily basis over the course of the week.

Over the course of the year, we aim to continue to improve our outdoor area provision for playtimes and in support of the curriculum.
