THE LEGACY CHALLENGE
Greyfriars is taking part in an exciting activity called The Legacy challenge. This provides pupils with an ideal opportunity to grow and develop their leadership skills and encourages pupils to take on greater responsibility within the classroom and the playground. It promotes and raises awareness about the benefits of a healthier lifestyle and encourages participation in physical activity. The challenge can be completed within school and if the pupils wish can also be completed outside the school environment with the support of parents and sports club leaders..
Each pupil has a Legacy Challenge Booklet which is kept in school and is signed and dated by the class teacher when a challenge has been completed.
For Key Stage 1 Children
1 challenge has to be completed to receive a bronze certificate. 2 challenges for a silver certificate and 3 challenges for a gold certificate.
For Key Stage 2 Children
2 challenges have to be completed to receive a bronze certificate. 4 challenges for a silver certificate and 6 challenges for a gold certificate.
On Monday 9th October Miss Cook and Mrs Porter took 14 children to Lynnsport to take part in an Active Kids event. The focus was festival games and the children represented our school well and had a brilliant time. In fact the children were complimented on their behaviour and sportsmanship by the adults running the event. We are very proud of them.
We are very fortunate at Greyfriars to have additional support with teaching PE skills from Emma Woods, a PE teacher from KES, and Harry Collison and his team of coaches from Premier Sports.
