The first KS1 Multi-Skills events of the year were a resounding success as over 130 primary school pupils took part in the events which encouraged the basics of movement through a variety of games in a competitive and fun environment.
In the morning, Year 1 and 2 pupils from Newbold Church of England Primary School made the short journey to Outwood Academy Newbold for an hour of activities including football dribbling and the mini long jump. Leading her first solo event, Steph Miles and the Young Leaders from the secondary school ran eight easy to play activities that went down well with the young pupils.
“I liked the jumping because I got really far,” said one pupil from Newbold CoE.
Multi-Skills turned to Whittington Green Secondary School in the afternoon as 78 pupils from Mary Swanwick and Poolsbrook Primary Schools got involved with the fun-packed games.
A total of 48 Year 9 Young Leaders helped to run the two events and gain further experience of leading sports events. They were exemplary in their leadership, making the events run smoothly.
Far from just being fun for the KS1 pupils, the Young Leaders enjoyed running the activities and helping the primary school children.
“It’s great to see how happy they are,” said a Y9 Leader at Oakwood Academy Newbold.
Multi-Skills returns on 29th September at Brookfield Community School.
