At Morley Victoria we work towards our playgrounds being as active as possible both at break times and lunchtime too. We have a group of children who volunteer to be Sports Leaders for the younger children. They complete some training with the PE subject leaders and then are trained to resource, organise and play games with the younger children at lunchtimes.
The children are great role models for the younger children and enjoy their time with them too.
They teach the younger children how to follow rules and play different games and of course how to get along with one another in the playground. They are a huge help to the lunchtime staff and teachers – their help and support is much appreciated by all!
