Over the next two terms both p7 classes are taking part in the Young Leader award. Catherine Johnston from Active Schools is helping us through the scheme. We are learning what it means to be a leader and what skills we need to improve to be successful.
We started off with taking turns at leading in follow the leader and Simon Says. We discovered that one of the most important skills is good communication. It's also important to be really sure of the rules!
Over the course of the award we will learn how to organise groups for games and how to prepare for a games session with younger pupils. By the end of the project we will be expected to take groups from the younger classes and teach them games, doing all the organising, preparation and supervision ourselves.
It will be quite a challenge and hopefully will make the playground a more exciting and inclusive place to play.
