Dynamo Leader Workshop

On Monday afternoon Dynamo Leaders worked with Kaye Barnett. The focus was about leadership during lunchtime sports. Kaye asked us to gather around and talk about ways we could be better Dynamo leaders. We talked about ways to work with students, gear we could use in games and ways we could manage our games so that students listened to us and got involved.
Kaye said it was important to present ourselves as sporty. We drew pictures and recorded ideas for what to wear when we lead games and how to give clear instructions to students.

“I enjoyed playing the new games that Kaye taught us” – Claire

“I enjoyed drawing the pictures about what we should look like and the qualities we should model” – Asha

It was a really cool way to spend the afternoon and we now have lots of new ideas when we work with students at lunchtimes. Thanks KayeJ
