One of the most exciting events of the Summer Term, Sports Day, is fast approaching! The children have been preparing during their PE lessons and we would like to invite you to come along and support the children with lots of enthusiasm and your loudest cheers!
This year’s Sports Day will follow the same format as last year. It will contain a mix of competitive races, fun races and field events. All children will take part. The dates and times for each year group are listed below:
Reception Friday July 5th – 9.15am start on the school field
Year 1 and Year 2 Friday July 5th – 1.15pm start on the school field
Year 3 and Year 4 Thursday 4th July – 1.15pm start on the school field
Year 5 and Year 6 Thursday 4th July – 9.15am start on the school field
The events will take place on our school’s playing field. In the event of poor weather and cancellation, you will be notified by text message at the earliest opportunity. Reserve dates are provisionally booked for Friday 12th July for Reception, Y1 and Y2 and Thursday 11th July for Y3,4,5 and Y6.
In anticipation of hot, sunny weather (fingers crossed), please ensure that your child brings a water bottle and a sunhat for the day. Please try to help out by making sure your child applies suncream before they come into school on the day. It is fine for children to apply a ‘top-up’ themselves in school and staff will be happy to help if needed. If your child brings suncream in, please ensure their bottle is labelled.
The children will enter and leave the playing field with their class and will stay with their class as they move around to the different events. There will be a viewing area for parents to watch from. To ensure the children’s safety, it is imperative to remember that under no circumstances can they leave the playing field. You will be able to collect your child at the end of the day as normal.
We look forward to seeing you at our Sports Days to support the children as they participate in this fun and enjoyable event.
