KS1 and KS2 Skill Progression Documents

Commando Joe

The Commando Joe programme is progressive from Early Years to Year 6. The scheme works on building confidence, teamwork, resilience, improving self-esteem and allowing children the chance to make decisions under pressure. Most of all, it builds on and develops life skills. It gives children opportunities to take on challenges, become leaders and work independently.



We are very lucky to have a group of year 5 and 6 children who work alongside teaching staff and mid-day supervisors at play time and lunch time, every day, to encourage children to be more active. They work on both the infant and junior playgrounds to set up and manage different games and activities for the children to take part in. This has proven very popular and extremely beneficial to the children’s confidence, self-esteem and active status. It has created new friendships across year groups and has encouraged more children to join in team games and become more active. The play-leaders take responsibility for planning the games, sorting the equipment and resources and managing the activity. They are also responsible for returning all the equipment at the end of break and ensuring it is stored safely and correctly. The children follow a rota which gives each play-leader four weekly slots, a playtime and a lunchtime on the infant yard and a playtime and lunchtime on the junior yard. There is also a rotation system for which year groups take part in the planned activities to reduce participants in each game, ensure safety of the children and maximise the game. Last year the children were awarded yellow play-leaders hoodies which they wear with pride.

Each year new play-leaders are appointed. Chris Wright of Wright Sports Services delivered the initial play-leader training with the children and staff. Every academic year, the 6 children deliver the training to the new year 5 leaders.

Sports Coaches, Swimming and events.

We are very lucky each week to welcome Tom from Wright Sports Services/Chance Camp who works with each class coaching a variety of sports and events. Wright Sports Services also send different coaches to us during the year who specialise in workshops or units of work with specific year groups.

We also welcome Sarah Hampson, who delivers gymnastics throughout the year to each class, alongside running a gymnastics after school club. 

At Flimby Primary School, we believe in providing our children with as many opportunities as possible. Each year we book companies to come and run health and fitness workshops with each year group, some of which include KidzFit, yoga, gymnastics, Bikeability and wheelchair basketball. We have also made links with Workington Academy and invite some of their pupils to assist with these events where possible. 

In addition to attending competitions within the Maryport Cluster, we try to run competitions and events in-school, where children can compete against each other, within their own class or against another year group. 

Year 6 will attend catch up recovery swimming sessions in the Summer term.
