Primary School Sharing Good Practice

School: Dormanstown Primary School

Project Title: Adventure & Creative Change 4 Life Clubs

Why This project: We aquired some funding last year through the School Sport Partnership Change 4 Life project to encourage year 3 and 4 children to become more active. After successfully running the programme we decided to adapt both clubs to include children for other reasons such as confidence building, help with playtime behaviour, to develop friendships and encourage more active play. We used the basics from the change for life programme to evolve a club that works for us and specific for the children themselves.

What we Did:

  • We looked at data from the previous year to highlight children who did not participate in extra curricular activity. We also invited teachers to nominate children they thought would benefit from the programme for the reasons above.
  • We decided to run the club over the lunchtime period as less active children tend not to participate outside of school hour.
  • We ask their children about their interets and split them into two groups; adventure club for the children who would prefer a more lively session and creative club for those children who benefit from a quieter session which focuses more on dance and gymnastic linked games.
  • We invited Natalie from a local dance and drama club to take some sessions of creative club. Adventure club was run initially by Mr Neeve a community development worker with experience as a scout leader and now Miss Levett a TA and extended school worker. We also invited a student from Teesside University completing their sports development degree to come and join in the fun.
  • Children are given a ‘pass’ to get to their allocated club which gave the children the feeling of being chosen and special. Children are allowed to go into dinner first when producing their ‘pass’ . This enables maximum participation time over the lunchtime period.

Impact:

  • Less active children are increasing their daily active minutes through the club.
  • Children have developed friendships outside of their social circle.
  • Playground behaviour has improved.
  • Children attending for confidence building are becoming more confident by becoming more assertive within a group and by expressing their likes and opinions better within lessons.
  • Some children have gone on to attend extra curricular activities outside of their school day after attending adventure or creative club.
  • Children have become more positiive in their approach to try new activities.

School: Dormanstown Primary

Project Title: Rise and Shine

Why this project: We offer daily extended school opportunities at Dormanstown and decided to run a ‘rise and shine’ early morning drop in session before school to encourage increased active minutes during the day. The club is open two mornings per week at 8am and children play a variety of games often linked to up and coming cluster festivals.

What we did:

  • The club was offered to all key stage 2 children. Children are initially required to register for the club, it is then run as a ‘drop in’ session. However, it is consistently well attended.
  • We ask the children every few weeks which games they especially enjoyed, a list is then made of the children’s preferences. This becomes the planning for the next session.
  • School Games, spirit of the games values, are used frequently throughout the sessions and rewards are given by way of stickers or tokens as recognition of achievement. We have also introduced the Active Leaders cards as goals. For example two year 6 boys were set a challenge to earn the card which deals with being able to lose a game. The boys have eagerly accepted this challenge and regularly take responsibility for their own learning by using self evaluation to decide when they will achieve their goal.
  • We have occasionally invited students from Teesside University sports development degree to join rise and shine and share their sports knowledge and ideas with the children.

Impact:

  • Less active children are increasing their daily active minutes through the club.
  • Children have developed friendships outside of their social circle.
  • Children attending rise and shine tend to be more settled in class during the morning and their behaviour and concentration has noticeably improved.
  • Playground behaviour has improved.
  • Children attending for confidence building are becoming more confident by becoming more assertive within a group and by expressing their likes and opinions within the sessions.
  • Children have become more positive in their approach to try new active activities.
