Children enjoy a range of fun activities at yard time. These activities are both tagged yard activities or part of our Playworks programme. Tagged activities include football, dodgeball, table tennis and basketball.
Playworks is a programme organised by Fifth Class children (supervised by adults) who co-ordinate games on yard, ensuring that every child who wants to participate, is included. These games are democratically facilitated by the student co-ordinators. An example of this is the manner in which little disputes are settled by a simple game of ‘rock, paper’ scissors’!
During the school year 2017/2018, a group of 4th class children was trained by their 5th and 6th class peers as playground facilitators.
Playworks activities include:
Mini football, Mini basketball, Four square, Two square Wall ball
