Summer 20/21 - Sports Leaders Update

As Sports Leaders, we will be participating in a lot of sports events and challenges. We have done half of our Sports Leader Training – Introduction to Leadership and will be doing three more units – Health and Wellbeing, Media leaders and Practical leadership. We have also discussed ideas for how we can get the other children in the school more active. We have decided on a reward of some kind for the class who does the most Daily Boost each term and will be writing to Nik with a proposal to fund this reward – possibly a trophy. We also think it would be a good idea to have a Sports Activator in each class to encourage their teachers and classmates to take part regularly. We have thought about getting a special badge for these children.

Autumn 21/22 - Sports Leaders Update

This term, new Sports Leaders have been chosen. Each year 5 child that was interested in the job took home an application form and they wrote why they would make a good Sports Leader including all the Mellor Character Traits that would help them. Then Liz, Tina and Corey had a difficult task to choose from these as there were so many. The Sports Leader group consists of 19 children from years 5 and 6. We are going to source appropriate trophies for the classes that do the most Daily Boost as our first task for our Sports Activator project. We are also going to be doing some Sports Leader Training to help us to do our jobs well.

Spring 21/22 - Sports Leaders Update

This term we have been organising how we are going to help the Lunchtime Supervisors deliver different activities to pupils in Funnington. We will use our Sports Leader training to support this.

We have also discussed and are planning to send out a home school challenge called ‘Get caught playing sport!’. To start this off, we will put photographs of us doing different sports at home on display. We will add a few sentences about who we are and what we are doing to help inspire others to be active at home and to take part in the challenge.

We are also going to start writing mini reports to put on our School Games Board so the school knows what we are doing to be active as a school and what happens at different events.

The school teams have been doing a lot of sports related activities outside of school so far this term. This includes the Dance Festival at Taylor Road Primary School, Boccia and New Aged Kurling at Aylestone Leisure Centre and the Football teams have also been in action. Zakariya even had a starring moment on the BBC East Midlands News talking about Boccia!

We have managed to sort out costs for our Daily Boost trophies and badges and will put our request to Nik shortly.

 

Projects

We are Mellor Sports Leaders!

The Sports Leaders are a team of Year 5 and 6 children who have a passion for Sport and getting active. We are often children who have taken part in afterschool clubs and teams or who have shown a special interest in this area.

We have to complete an application form and give it to Liz, Corey and Tina who select the Sports Leaders. The application form states that Mellor Sports Leaders must show these qualities at all times:

Responsible, Active, Committed, Approachable, Teamwork, Able to work with younger children, Helpful, Role Model

We have to say why we think we would make a great Mellor Sports Leader.

Year 5 Leaders are recruited in the Autumn term and they continue with their job into Year 6.

The Sports Leaders assist at Sports events across the school year. This has included supporting younger and SEND children during our Mini-Olympic Sports Afternoons in Sports Week and setting up equipment, running Paralympic activities alongside Liz for all year groups 1-6, helping to run whole school charity runs such as Race at Our Place where we run warm-ups and cool-downs, marshal the event and encourage the children to get around the course.

So far, the Year 6 Sports Leaders have all completed part of the Sports Leader Training virtually with Corey. This would normally have been face to face training with Leicester City School Sport and Physical Activity Network but they have provided virtual training for this year and last year.

This year we have also been organising how we are going to help the Lunchtime Supervisors deliver different activities to pupils in Funnington. We will use our Sports Leader training to support this.

We have also discussed and are planning to send out a home school challenge called ‘Get caught playing sport!’. To start this off, we will put photographs of us doing different sports at home on display. We will add a few sentences about who we are and what we are doing to help inspire others to be active at home and to take part in the challenge.

We are also going to start writing mini reports to put on our School Games Board so the school knows what we are doing to be active as a school and what happens at different events.

We are going to create a job in each class to support with running the Daily Boost. There will be badges for the children with the job and trophies for the class who does the most Daily Boost minutes in each term! We have managed to sort out costs for our Daily Boost trophies and badges and Nik has agreed that we can purchase them next term. We hope that this job and trophy system will encourage more children to be active every day!
