At Ham Dingle all our Year 6 pupils are members of our “Playground Leader” team. Each week, a group of trained leaders help to organise a variety of fun and engaging games on both our KS1 and KS2 playgrounds. They offer a range of ‘calm’ and ‘active’ activities that suit the interests of all children.
Our Year 6 pupils are very supportive of our younger children and show maturity when organising and leading the activities. They are an asset to Ham Dingle and have helped make the lunchtimes more structured and enjoyable for all.
They are responsible for:
•Setting up playground activities
•Involving as many children as possible in the games
•Explaining the task and rules to the children
•Teaching children new games and skills
•Making sure the activities are run fairly
