Firstly, I thought the Get Active session was really brilliant! The children absolutely loved it and were totally engaged in everything (quite a challenge on a Friday afternoon, especially after their celebration morning – ‘mega excitement’, as they say!). The two coaches training them were fantastic and it was clear they were ‘in control’ of the children.
The feedback from all the teachers was similar. We all felt that the activities were pitched age appropriately, were clearly explained and modelled and that the children’s natural energy was channelled and used really effectively. The adults leading it were really friendly and warm, which helped the more nervous Year 1s settle in quickly too. It also gave us some ideas for use in our own PE lessons!
Please pass on the positive feedback and our thanks to all involved. Thanks too for helping arrange it and for meeting us at the school too.
