January 2018 

This year, we introduced Y6 Sports Leaders into Mundella. Children from Y6 have been picked to take on this role. Each house at Mundella has 4 Sports Leaders, making 16 children in total. These children take it in turns to organise a sports competition during lunchtimes at school. The role had many different elements: picking at team from their house across all year groups; ensuring all children take part in an event throughout the year; training and organising tactics; communicating with staff; ensuring their team are available on match day; and coaching during the competition. We have also assigned two of our Y6 children to become Sports Reporters. These children create reports based on the games.
