Change 4 Life
St Oswald’s runs a very successful ‘Change 4 Life’ multi-sport/activity club. This club aims to engage the least active, young people in positive, physical activity opportunities that will improve attitudes towards having a healthy, active lifestyle. The club runs on a weekly basis and has been put in place to support children between the ages of 7 and 9 with the aim of encouraging them to be active and to learn to enjoy the challenge of physical activity in a number of pupil led activities.
The club has been set up to support children who: find physical activity difficult, find it difficult to work as a team, have a low self-esteem or lack confidence during PE sessions. We strongly believe that all children should have a sense of belonging and contribution and this club will enable them to feel just that.
Our 2017-18 Change 4 Life Champions are:
Planning our sessions
Our Change for Life champions, who lead the session, are in charge of planning and delivering the activities. On a Tuesday dinner time the champions come together to carefully plan and discuss each session. The children are very inventive and imaginative with their ideas to make the club an active and fun place. Our champions include ideas from PE sessions, the online C4L bank and even make up their own activities.
This week our champions decided they wanted to make an obstacle course for the children to enjoy. An inventive and fun way of keeping fit. Well done boys and girls!
Change For Life Training
Today our Change For Life champions went to Mortimer Community College for leadership training. They took part in many activities which will help them to become an effective sports ambassador.
The children in our C4L club love to use the gymnastics equipment in our hall.
