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 2018-19 Change 4 Life Champions are:
In today's session the children were introduced to some new games. They played Shark Island, Making Shapes and also a game where the children had to stop the ball going through their legs. They all loved these new games and have already asked our C4L Leaders to repeat them in the next session.
In today's session the C4L champions decided they wanted to set up the gymnastics equipment. The children loved this activity especially the tunnel which had been made using mats. We balanced on the beam, leaped over the horse and crawled through the tunnel; we enjoy being active.
First Meeting After Christmas!
In today's session our wonderful champions decided to use our parachute to play Sharks and Life guards, the children loved this game. We also played Fruit Salad as a warm up and had numerous games of Doctor; which is a game based on dodgeball.
This week in our wonderful Change For Life session we concentrated on multi-skills. The champions split our hall into three sections and decided to incorporate different skills in each. For instance one area of the hall was practising throwing skills whilst another was dribbling skills.
