On 25th January our six Year 11 Sports Leaders led a fun, action packed multi-sports festival for local primary schools at Ponds Forge. This was an amazing afternoon with over 50 Year 4 pupils from St Thomas of Canterbury RC Primary, Greenhill Primary, Ecclesall Junior School, Hallam Primary and Westbourne involved.


The sports leaders led individual warm ups before leading a circuit format activity from their own station. The activities included a mixture of sport and trust and thinking games.

The pupils were split into 6 mixed groups, giving them the opportunity to socialise and mix with pupils they had never met before.

The emphasis of the session was participation, fun and trying out new activities.

The pupils appeared to enjoy the afternoon, which was full of lively and supportive teamwork.

The accompanying teachers were really impressed with our sports leaders - the planning they had put into the day and how well our pupils explained and demonstrated the activities.

Congratulations to all the sports leaders on a super afternoon.
