We are going to make play times more fun!
All the children in Years 5 and 6, plus two from Year 4, have been working with an Inspire+ trainer called Louise. She helped us learn how to make the playground a better place for everyone.
On the first week we learnt about the 6 qualities of Safety; to make sure no one would get hurt. Next it was Organisation; to make sure we have planned everything. This was followed by Responsibility; we should take care of each other and be responsible for our own behaviour. Finally we learnt about Communication; being able to explain how to play games and how to talk to each other.
We are going to be creating new games, encouraging new friendships and passing on our training so everyone knows how to play and behave on the playground. No-one will be left out of games and we’ll have lots of happy faces.
This is why the pupils of the Bythams school will have more fun and better play times!
