The time has arrived for another Sports Day and as last year it will take place on Winns Common, by Riverdale Road and Heath Villas. The main emphasis is on enjoyment, improving personal performances, skill development, fitness and participation by all, so we ask that you come along and support your child/children if you can.

The children will be put into country teams and the common will be divided into 9 zones, 7 activity zones and 2 rest zones. Each zone will contain two different activities, but each team will only take part in one of the activities within that zone.  Teams will have 2 minutes to complete their activity and earn points before moving on to the next. Points will then be added together and three teams will be awarded a gold, silver or bronze status.

Once the teams have moved around each zone, we will finish off with traditional running races on the track.  These races will not count towards the final point totals, but are just a bit of fun. We will also have a few teacher races as well as parent races – so please come prepared.

Please note that spectators/visitors will be positioned around the outside of the activity area. We would appreciate your cooperation in remaining this side of the track until all activities and races have been completed. Your children must remain with their team throughout the session.

Your child/children should already have their FULL P.E kit in school to use on the day.

  • White t-shirt
  • Black/Blue/Grey Leggings or joggers or shorts
  • Trainers or Plimsolls (boots, school shoes or studded football shoes are not appropriate footwear)

Any missing parts of your child’s PE kit should be in school by Wednesday 27th June.

In event of warm weather, your child will need sun cream and a sun hat. No drink bottles are needed as there will be water available at the rest zones.

I’m sure we will all have a fantastic day and the weather will be just right!

 

Please note that for safeguarding reasons any images and/or video you take of your children on the day should not be uploaded to social media accounts. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
