Chelsea Football Club coach helps out at Ark Dickens
On Tuesdays and Wednesdays Year 6 have the privilege of having a professional coach from Chelsea Football Club Foundation coming in to school and teaching them during PE lessons.
Each week the children participate a different sport or build on skills taught in a previous lesson. This benefits the children in a variety of ways. They are exposed to a number of sports to which they may not have previously experienced. As well as gaining experience in different sports, the children are also learning about general health, fitness, what benefits there are to a healthy lifestyle and making the correct healthy lifestyle choices.
On Tuesday afternoons, the coach stays and leads the afterschool football club. The children participate in a number of key skill games, work on improving their individual football ability as well as learning how to be part of an effective team.
The children are really enjoying being coached by a member of the Chelsea Football Club Foundation and try very hard with all the activities set for them.
