For this year’s athletic sports day, pupils will be split into six teams which will be led by our Sports Coaches. Within these teams, your child will take part in six activities throughout the morning, these are: standing long jump, javelin, hockey dribble and bat and ball balance.
Our Sports Coaches will be conducting pupil voice to find out from the pupils what two other activities they would like to take part in. Pupils will be staying within these teams throughout the morning trying to get as many points for their team as possible. The team with the most points will be crowned this year’s winners. A score board will be updated regularly so you can keep track of your child’s team and of course you are welcome to follow your child’s team around the courses. The winning team will be announced at the end of the day.
The Sports Day will start at 10.30am and finish at the end of the day. At lunch time everyone will take part in a family picnic. Children who are entitled to a free school meal will be provided with a school packed lunch; if your child does not receive a free school meal, but you would like them to have a school packed lunch, please complete the form below and return it to school by Monday, 03 July 2017. No hot lunches will be provided on the day. The children are allowed to wear their PE kit for the whole day.
Pupils will be taken inside mid-morning with their teams for a short break from the sun and a much needed rest. Before lunch pupils will be sent to their class teacher, we would be grateful if you could make your way to your child’s class teacher where they will make sure they are safely handed over to you. We will be setting up tables in the lunch hall if you would like a break from the sun.
In the afternoon, all children will take part in a sprinting race and will enjoy cheering on their friends and family. After the children have all taken part in their races, we will of course be opening up the track for a mums, dads and toddlers race. We look forward to seeing you all at your competitive best.
As the weather has been so hot recently, please can you apply plenty of sun tan lotion to your child/children before school and send them in with a sun hat and sun tan lotion for later in the day.
We will be selling drinks throughout the day to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and ice lollies at lunch time. We will also have a collection at the gate for any spare change you may have on you.
Once this year’s winners have been crowned, we would like the pupils to go back to their classrooms to be dismissed in the usual way.
