All children have the right to relax and play and join in a wide range of activities (Article 31)
At Manor Field Junior School, we have a team of trained year 5 Play Leaders who help at lunch time at the infant school. They work alongside year R, 1 and 2, encouraging the younger children to play small sided games which teaches them to share with each other and promotes team spirit. This also creates a link with the junior school, enabling the younger children to recognise some familiar faces when they come to the juniors.
"The best past of being of Play Leader is that we get to go to the infant school and play with different children."
"I enjoy being a Play Leader because I like being a role model for the infant children."
"I enjoy being a Play Leader because I get to see my little brothers and play with new children."
