Learning Legends

Today we had some super behaviour during our learning circles, especially from the boys! Today we chose Liam and Bobby as our learning legends. Liam was a Motivated Moe for his super attitude towards everything we do in class. We also chose Bobby as a Choosing, Checking, Changing Charlie for always thinking carefully about the choices he makes and for his super behaviour and attitude in our leaning circles.

Well done boys for being a super addition to our crew and for being such good role models for the rest of the children. A special mention also goes to Harly and Macky for being superb crew members today and making me really proud.

School Games Active Championship

Youth Sports Trust have teamed up with TopYa to create an exclusive School Games Active Championship which can be used by pupils and schools.

Three times a week TopYa! Release a challenge for pupils to try. Children practise the challenges, then submit their best video using a mobile device to receive personal coaching feedback from the TopYa! team of experienced virtual coaches. Points are earned for each video submitted, leading to climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!

The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do to communicate with one another is give each other a virtual ‘high-five’, which functions like a social media ‘like’.

The points pupils gain are then tallied up and compared in a league table against other Doncaster schools (in the Rossington School Games Area).

This is completely free and a great way for pupils to be active at home and at school.

I have attached above information from TopYa! And you can also read more on the School Games Website.

You will need the following code which is unique to your school: 22612

 

Good luck and enjoy!
