Sports Day 12th July 2017

The following are the day and times for sports day next week. All sports day events will run on Wednesday, 12th July at the following times:

9:15 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. - Years 3 and 4 (Rowan, Chestnut, Willow and Poplar)

10:40 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. - Years 5 and 6 (Maple, Holly, Pine and Oak)

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. - Years 1 and 2 (Sycamore, Hazel, Hawthorn and Silver Birch)

All children should come to school in their PE kit for the day, and should wear their school jumper over this if they are cold. Please ensure that your child has a hat and sun cream if the weather is particularly good!

There will be a variety of activities that all children will be taking part during their sports day event. The children will be competing together in their School Houses and each group be given a points score for each activity; this score will go towards their House's total.

For the finale, there will be sprint, hurdles and egg and spoon races at the end of the activities. Each of these events will be competed between the fastest children, representing each house, from each class. The children will be taking part in preliminary rounds this week to determine who these children will be.

We are hopeful this different structure of Sports Day will be a more fun, active and inclusive day for all the children involved and would welcome you to attend. Please report to the school office no more than 10 minutes before the start time of your event.

We have chosen one day for the events to try and support parents who may need to arrange time off or to make plans for other childcare and so on, and apologise for the late notice.

If the weather is poor on the day, we will announce cancellation by text message. If you do not have an up to date number stored with school, please ensure you speak to the office team.

With thanks for your continued support,

Mr Jack Mallon

PE Leader
