Sports Day Arrangements Sep 2019
As originally advised in September 2018 and through school newsletters sports day for Ks1 and Ks2 will be on the following days:
Monday 16th September (morning)- UKs2 – Year 5 & 6
Monday 23rd September (morning)- LKs2 – Year 3&4
Friday 4th October(morning) – Ks1 – Year 1&2
Please ensure your child has a drink bottle, hat and sun cream should it be a hot day or PE top and a tracksuit if the weather is a little cooler. They should wear suitable footwear, ideally trainers but plimsolls are acceptable and school PE kit. They should come to school dressed in their PE kits this day, ready for 9.15am start. Once sports day has finished, parents will be asked to leave the school grounds and children will return to there classes to carry on with the school day. There will be no change to any school dinners on this day.
You are invited to come along and support your child. When arriving on the school grounds, parents will need to take their child to class and wait on the school field for sports day to commence. The gates will be locked to safe guard the children.
The format for this year is as follows:
All children to take part in field events
short drink break
All children to take part in track events
Medal Ceremony – all children to receive medals
The decision to change sports day to the beginning of the school year was taken to help children settle into their new class environment and give them the opportunity to work with others within the key stage. July is a very busy time of the year and we often have to cancel due to hot or rainy weather. We are hoping this time of the year will be more successful. If we must cancel sports day (due to the weather) we will try and let you know the day before.
