‘Ready, Set, Go!’ is scheduled in the whole school timetable for the first 10 minutes of each school morning.
When the bell rings to start each school day, the children hurry to their classrooms to meet up with their teacher and classmates and prepare for the ‘Ready, Set, Go’ activity planned for that day. During this session, teachers and children participate together in active, challenging, co-operative tasks that are a lot of fun for everyone!
Some days, the children remain indoors to play the game or solve the problems in a task. On other mornings, the ‘Ready, Set, Go!’ activity requires a bigger learning space, such as a hard court or our runners’ track.
The goal of this session is to provide time early each day for children to join their teacher and peers in a fun, relaxed activity that connects them to their school and helps to prepare them positively for the day ahead.
It is evident from the squeals of delight heard in the grounds and the cheers of encouragement coming from the classrooms that this program engages all our students, whether they are in Prep or Year 6.
Whatever the task, ball games, relays, percussion- playing, crafts, relaxation exercises, strategy games – the catchcry can be heard…
‘Ready, Set, Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!’
