There was a hive of activity in the sports hall at Hasland Hall Community School today with the arrival of children from Spire Infants and Temple Normanton Schools eager to take part in the Key Stage 1 Multi-Skills Festival.
A carousel of twelve activity stations was delivered by Year 9 Sports Leaders from Hasland Hall. The children were challenged with a variety of activities based on agility, balance and coordination.
One young child said: “I really like the balancing on the bench challenge because the girl leader is really good and helpful.”
Another said: “It’s really good because it’s lots of fun!”
This event was the first opportunity the Year 9 students have been given to put their leadership skills to the test and put what they had learned into practice!
All the leaders said how much fun it was with Jake adding: “It was a great way to build social skills and how you have to adapt to different situations.”
Staff from both schools commented on how impressed they were with the sports leaders, how much the children were enjoying themselves and how hard they were trying.
“It’s wonderful to see how the children are interacting with the Y9 leaders in this environment,” said one teacher.
“The leaders demonstrate a fantastic relationship with the children. They are a credit to the school.”
