Football Training with RUFC
Over the last few years, we have developed a strong partnership with Rotherham United Community Sports Trust who attend our school to deliver football training once and week as part of our extra-curricular offer. The club is one that is over-subscribed everytime due to the expertise and knowledge of the football coaches who plan and deliver the training sessions to a high standard.
Following the success of last year’s Young Leaders Award, our Year 6 pupils were very fortunate to work with Sam on the 6 week programme to become a sports leader within our academy. The programme has been devised by the company to develop their organisational and communication skills when leading and delivering activities to talk to younger children. The aim of the programme is to develop the pupils’ confidence to be able to successfully lead games and activities for the younger children in our school during break and lunchtime.
When pupils reach year 6 in a primary school, they are seen as role model to the other children which can be daunting for some pupils as we know, some children do not like to be stood in front of others or their peers. This programme has supported the pupils to raise their self-esteem and their confidence to speak out in front of others. For some pupils, this may be in small groups with younger children such as; throwing and catching, and for other this may be with a larger group of children who they are supporting to engage in a team game such as; football, netball etc.
Across the 6 weeks, the pupils have learnt to …
- Organise children into groups and teams quickly
- Use their knowledge of a wide variety of games for every age group.
- They now work in small group at dinnertime and after school club to ensure that the children are active, playing sensibly and most of all enjoying the games.
“I enjoyed the end part where we taught a lesson we had planned to the Y3s. I liked this because we were able to lead it and it was a really fun lesson. We became better at choosing the right equipment, working as a team and having the courage to talk to the other children. We thought Sam was a helpful teacher and gave us good ideas and support to teach a group.” - Y6 Pupil.
Sam said “They grew every week, increasing their knowledge and understanding of how to be able to control & lead a group. Building up into their final project in the last week where they delivered what they had learned to a group of 10/15 y3 children for 15 minutes.”
