We are delighted that the new playground markings are now in place. This is helping to increase activity levels with the children at break and lunchtimes.
The children have really embraced the challenge to beat their personal bests and also compete against one another in standing long jumps and at the target throwing spot. They are enjoying the strategy game of noughts and crosses, having fun playing hopscotch and also snakes and ladders. All of the games have proven to be very popular, encouraging positive interaction between children across year groups, and also promoting our TRAIN values of TEAMWORK and RESPECT.
We have three new mini football pitches (which is great as football is always a popular lunchtime activity). There are set football days for certain year groups. We also have a Friendship Finder spot, which is monitored by our HPS playleaders. If a child stands in this area, we know that they would like support and encouragement to join in with positive play and interactions with others.
