Team spirit are dedicated in providing an educational service through sport and believe our after school clubs / PPA Passport scheme and workshops we hold within schools are essential in laying key foundations for young children to not only understand the importance of team spirit, respect, exercise and healthy living but to introduce it as part of their daily routine.
We currently deliver PE lessons and PPA cover for Hollybrook Infant school and Wordsworth primary school. We also provide sports leader sessions at lunch times as an add on service to the PPA lessons. We are proud to work closely with local schools using our TEAM ethos.
We also set up inter school tournaments for various schools to add that competitive edge as we believe it is important to learn and understand the importance of winning and losing.
“We are very proud to have Team Spirit working with our school children, there engagement and ethos is a foundation that we mirror and believe they are making a real difference to the children of Wordsworth school. All the team Spirit coaching staff show impeccable passion for there work, it is refreshing to see.”
Mr Page Wordsworth Head teacher
On top of our sports coaching sessions Team Spirit provides help and support to schools by offering our services for various activities. We provide schools with lunchtime sessions where we support the dinner staff by setting up different sporting activities and allowing the children to have fun in a controlled, organised session. This can be set to certain year groups at set times or it can be an open session for all age groups.
We also offer book reading sessions with children so the children get to read to us and we help them with this and we get to read our favorite books back to them as we feel it is important to set the right example to the children and show them the importance of reading. At Team Spirit we like to think of all our coaches as role models and this is a great way of engaging with the children.
On top of this we support children who find it challenging in the classroom by giving them a chance to take part in our ‘golden time project’. The ‘golden time project’ allows the children to have a break from the classroom and work on a Team Spirit group project that is hands on e.g. a Lego – Tastic project. This would be a weekly event for around 30 minutes but the children need to earn this reward by doing well in the classroom. We stay in regular contact with the class teacher to give and receive feedback on the selected children so we can keep track of their progress in and out of the classroom.
We deliver different workshops to schools that are based on our Team Spirit Ethos: T – TRY E – ENERGY A – ATTITUDE M – MAKING NEW FRIENDS. Within these workshops we explain what we mean for each of the points and how they can use this in Team Spirit sessions but also how they are key life skills to be used outside Team Spirit as well. We do this by not only having engaging fun interactive talks with groups/classes of children but also involving them in different activities so they can get hands on whilst learning about our ethos. We also provide other workshops about nutrition where we again explain the importance of healthy eating and get children to get involved in fun activities about a balanced diet. We also offer children different Team Spirit recipes that they can try out at home.
