Our Year 4 and Year 5 pupils are completing their Young Leaders awards this year. The award was set up by the Archbishop of York's Youth Trust and its aim is to help our young people to 'Be the change you want to see'. You may have read some of our news in the village Churches Magazine.
In order to achieve their award, the children have to complete a series of classroom based challenges where we learn what it means to be great leaders , as well as at least five personal challenges where we can help people in our local community.
We have completed a 'cup challenge' where we had to practise working as a team. After a little rehearsal, the children could soon work together like a well-oiled machine.
We also did a 'walk of trust', were we had to lead a partner around an obstacle course...blindfolded. We learned that simple, clear instructions are the key, and had lots of fun!
