Every class from 1st to 8th has two 35 minute modules of ‘Physical Education’ per week. The role of the volunteer would be to prepare and lead these sessions.
Teamwork, generosity, sportsmanship, respect, tolerance and self-confidence are just examples of all the skills that kids can easily develop through sports. The kids from Korando don’t have a lot of experience on playing new games, explained and lead by an adult. For this reason, you will have a lot of room to teach them new sports that will challenge them.
The Kenyan curriculum is extensive, therefore the children need many hours of study to learn the subjects covered and pass their exams. Physical Education can be perfect to relax from the pressure of standard classes and learn some out-of-school skills.
We recommend you to create a professional environment with a structure of activities and games. Starting with some easy games as warm ups, yoga exercises, simple songs with choreographies, introducing the children/group to team games while improving their motor skills with any material you can find available; ropes, balls, tires… This is one of the moments of the day the children enjoy the most and creativity is the key.
