School Games Values

The school games values are displayed in both halls in school. During each lesson different values are discussed with the children depending on what activity they are doing. During both level 1 and 2 competitions children work towards and focus on different values.

During the year we have done different things with the values;

  • we have had a different value each week for one half term, when during Mrs Fry's PE lessons she has looked for children displaying and showing that weeks focus.
  • we have had a whole school assembly where the children have been talked through each of the values.
  • the sports crew have sat down and thought about what each value means and have created a temporary display of their ideas in the gym.
  • we have had a school games day where during each activity each team was score against the school games values as well as the scores from completing the events.
  • during change for life club, the children worked hard to collect all 6 school games stickers.
