An incredibly successful workshop day involving 150 children from year two through to year six.
Each workshop session consisted of THIRTY children who were split into two groups. Whilst one group participated in the Street Snooker team and speed challenge the second group benefitted from a Brazilian Soccer Skills PE lesson.
After 15 minutes of play, the groups swapped over activities to ensure that all children had the opportunity to participate in Street Snooker and the Brazilian Soccer
The Workshop was so successful with the entire school that all the children wrote feedback and hand sketches with feedback about the morning, including sketches and how they felt they personally benefitted from playing Street Snooker
Head Teacher Mrs Rita Cooper
Thank you for a really great morning! Street Snooker is such a fun way to learn. Children don't realise they are improving hand-eye co-ordination and developing their numeracy skills! It encourages team work and is very adaptable to varying group sizes or individual players. Sacred Heart children loved it (and so did the teachers).
Miss Anna Moran – PE Leader
Thank you for sharing the Street Snooker activity with our Junior classes - they loved it!
I like the way that the game is flexible to suit particular needs, abilities and interests.
Jennifer Coley – Year 4 teacher
I thought Street Snooker was very good. It would be really good for developing aiming and throwing skills. It’s also good for shape and colour recognition and hand-eye co-ordination. The Maths element was also very good.
150 Children wrote feedback comments and the forms are available to view if requested. Here are a few of their comments:
I really liked the Street Snooker. I really liked that we were against the clock and we were in teams of three. Thank you for coming to our school and a brilliant morning.
Street Snooker was really fun because of hand eye co=ordination and team work. I liked the Brazilian Football too. The Snooker was really REALLY fun. Thank you. I can’t think of anything to improve.
FROM SCARLET. YR 5/6
I think Street Snooker is 10,000 better than normal snooker. I liked it because it encouraged me to be active and quick. I liked the game because you would be told to cheer fo the person playing. Infact, I wouldn’t like to change it because I loved it!
