Kian and Charlie started off the club by running a warm up where they gave the children actions that related to numbers and asked them to complete the action.

Mr Dobbs Visit - Change 4 Life Club
Today the children in Change 4 Life club had a very special visitor in from the School Sports Partnership, Mr Dobbs. The children have met Mr Dobbs lots of times when he has been in school to train up the sports leaders but today they were able to spend their time with him learning new games and running the games with him. They discussed as a group that we should be doing 1 hour of exercise per day and drink at least 6 200ml cups of water per day to stay hydrated. Games that they played included: Traffic lights (where a colour matches an action), throwing a bean bag and quickly swapping with someone else, quick reactions and James Bond. The children had a lovely time and are looking forward to playing their new games with Miss Littlewood and Miss Wells next week!
