Play Journalists: Active Play

Today Pupil Play Journalists took to the playground armed with digital cameras. Their mission was to capture evidence of 'active play' across all our outdoor spaces,  taking photos to tell a photo-story of life at Blue Coat during break and lunch time.

There was a lot of enthusiasm for this task and boys and girls from year 1 to year 6 children got involved. We will tackle other themes and activities throughout the year so more pupils can take part.

Outdoor play is recognised for increasing activity in young people, with benefits to both mental and physical wellbeing. Blue Coat endeavours to offer lots of choice at break times, to create diverse opportunities for play.

The photos are excellent and show evidence of running, jumping, swinging, kicking, dancing, pulling, pushing, balancing, climbing, hanging, lifting, digging, stirring and teamwork. Perhaps more importantly, they show the children engaged in play of their choice, with friends, and following their own instincts, ideas and interests.

Please take a look at our slideshows and add a comment for our Play Journalists if you like!

We observed Remembrance in school worship yesterday, following on from Class Taibei's brilliant, thought provoking worship last Friday.
