I am contacting you regarding a Mini Ballers session that was delivered at our setting recently. Can I first start by saying what a wonderful package this is. It fits in perfectly with the EYFS curriculum and addresses many areas for development identified through current data, for children entering our school.
The session was delivered by Jack Barnes and he was amazing! The children instantly warmed to him, listened intently and were excited by his calm and friendly manner. His approach linked well to our Early Years philosophy and the session length was perfect. I loved the peer mentoring that took place and the whole session linked well to our school values. I invited a member of our school advisory board and physical education, curriculum link governor, to observe the session and she was extremely impressed. She will provide feedback to the Local Governing Body as soon as possible.
I also wanted to share something wonderful that happened today. We have a child with very specific special educational needs who finds P.E sessions particularly challenging. However, today he wanted to join in. He listened, was engaged, followed instructions and most importantly, showed pure joy. I have worked with this child for just under two years and have never seen him so happy and engaged, it was a delight to see.
My colleagues and I wanted to pass on our thanks to Jack for delivering such a wonderful session and praise his manner with the children. I would be very grateful if you would share this with him. We will now share the package with the senior leadership team and hopefully be in touch to make further arrangements in the very near future.
