This week has been the first in the Classroom to 5K phase, in this week’s lessons, students have been completing a task similar to something you would see in orienteering. There have been 16 checkpoints located around the school grounds and students have been tasked with finding each checkpoint. In pupils’ second lesson, they have been assigned a country in which they aim to complete as many laps of the course as they can during their lesson, the countries with the most laps have been awarded several reward points.
There has been a real focus this week on mass engagement but also increasing students’ social skills after a difficult few months. We have been delighted with the vast majority of students who have fully engaged in the activity and can also appreciate the importance of staying active whilst being social with friends. These lessons will prepare students for PE lessons when we return after the Easter break.
