90 minute club

In 2013, Booker Hill embarked on an exciting, global project. The project was organized by the Regio Comenius Partnership. This partnership enables the Buckinghamshire Education Authority to work with schools and other education providers on projects that will enrich the education for all involved.

Our project involved staff and two classes at Booker Hill School working alongside staff from The Matrix, Wycombe Wanderers, and staff and pupils from a school in Sweden. The pupils took part in a series of 90 minute lessons with an anti-bullying theme, with 45 minutes of each session based around sport, for example using the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ resources already used in school.

Each session was focused on an e-safety or anti bullying theme. The ten themes were:

  • Esafety   The rap
  • Citizenship
  • Personal safety
  • Respect
  • Respect within sport
  • Show racism the red card
  • Conflict resolution
  • Rights and responsibilities
  • Making a difference
  • Public performance (End of sequence presentation for parents)


Benefits of the project, observed and recorded by school staff included:
  • Pupils enjoyed the opportunity to discuss issues around bullying and e-safety in a group forum
  • They showed increased awareness of the need to be cautious when using the internet, in particular online forums and social networking sites
  • Comments demonstrated that pupils became more aware of the impact that their comments had on others
  • Pupils were observed using strategies taught, in particular ways of avoiding and dealing with conflict,  in other situations both within and outside of the classroom
  • Their willingness to contribute to discussions improved
  • Pupils enjoyed the majority of the activities and this is supported by their feedback
  • Pupils particularly enjoyed the reinforcement of learning through sport and became more aware of how learned behaviours cross over between behaviour on and off of the sports field
  • Through reinforcement of learning outside of the sessions, pupils began to comment on the learned strategies and how they had transferred their learning to home situations
  • Pupils who began the course as less confident benefitted the most with ALL becoming more confident
  • The sport element of the course fully complimented the learning within the classroom
  • Communication with the Matrix staff was very good and allowed for the smooth running of the course

The project, that ran for a period of two years, has been a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to learn about similarities and differences between them and pupils from the school in Sweden, and to develop as resilient, global citizens who are confident and culturally aware.

During the project, Booker Hill hosted visits from the Swedish partners. Both Booker Hill and Matrix staff have also visited our colleagues in Sweden. Teachers from Sweden taught lessons in our school using the "Scratch" programme; Booker Hill teachers and staff from the Matrix took lessons in Sweden based around Conflict Resolution.

We are currently investigating strengthening this link via e-twinning.

During Autumn Term 2015, Year 5 continued to promote "Show Racism the Red Card" in our school through their commitment to Wear Red Day on 23rd October, details of which can be found on the Year 5 class page here.
