Playground Leaders Shine

Ten Year 6 Playground Leaders were put through their paces for two dedicated afternoons of Sports Leadership training that was delivered by Mr Julyan from Paignton Academy.  The Playground Leaders are assigned key roles to support activities for the younger children at break times and lunch times.  Through the training sessions the students worked on their ability to communicate, demonstrate and deliver games to suit everyone.  Mr Julyan said “The group were fantastic, energetic, passionate and keen to make a difference by supporting the younger students at lunchtime to take part in enjoyable activities”

British Chess Champion Hones Year 6 Talent

All Year 6 students were given the opportunity to take part in Monday lunchtime Chess Club.  Mr Thynne who is a specialist Chess Tutor and a British Masters Chess Champion himself has spent several weeks honing the skills of a group of Year 6, teaching them the rules and supporting the students through mini tournaments.  Mr Thynne was extremely impressed with the speed in which the whole group picked up the game and understood key tactics.  It is hoped to offer the opportunity to Year 5 and Year 4 in due course.

Football Club Flying High

The Friday night Football club which is led by a Torquay United Football coach has seen a committed core group of children attend every week throughout all weathers.  The coach has been extremely impressed with the progress of those students who attend each week.  Mr Clemens and Mrs Cliff know that the school Football team is bolstered by the weekly training sessions and look forward to the upcoming matches.
