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:
Change 4 Life 24.9.19
Our first session of C4L was very successful. The champions introduced themselves and talked to the children about what sports they enjoyed. We also discussed which sports were their favourite so we could incorporate these into our club.
In tonight's session the C4L Champions decided to ask to children to use stretching techniques during their cool down time. The children really enjoyed the peaceful music and mindfulness.
In this weeks session the Change for Life Champions decided to make an obstacle course using the gymnastics equipment. The children loved using the equipment to practice their balancing, crawling and gymnastic skills.
In today's session of Change for Life we have been learning about healthy living. As part of our healthy lifestyle we thought about how a varied diet is very important. The children in our group decided they wanted to make healthy wraps. Firstly we researched healthy ideas for fillings to put in our wraps and then we voted for our favourites. As you can see we enjoyed this experience and tried some new and very different tastes.
In our session today the children decided to make fruit kebabs. We tried new tastes and flavours as we tried coconut, passion fruit, pomegranate and sharon fruit, as you can see from our photos it was a great success.
