Games Leadership Session
Today 9 children from class 4 came to class 3 to test out their leadership skills. They worked with Mr Beveridge to set up a range of games to develop lots of different skills. They planned a warm up, main game and cool down.
Class 3 children had lots of fun playing all the different activities that were set up. Class 4 children did an amazing job and were especially fantastic at telling the younger children what they had done well and how they could improve next time.
Well done to all!
