Sports Day and picnic lunch

June 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 2:30 pm

Sports day today!!


Our sports day will be held on Thursday 20th June. Sports day will run from 10:30 until 2:30. Parents are invited to bring packed lunches in and have a picnic on site with their children.  Lunch will be from 12pm-1pm.

At the end of sports day children will go back to their class and will be need to be collected from there.  If your child is being collected by anyone else we will need to know in advance.  Children can then leave at 2:30 with their parents.


In the morning every child will be placed in mixed age teams and will participate in a rotation of fun, physical activities. In the afternoon competitive races will be held to provide an opportunity for athletes who have competed in learning base, preliminary ‘heats’ in order to participate in the ‘finals’. The preliminary races will be taking place in PE lessons and the children will be selected according to their performances in these lessons. Please be aware that not every child will be able to compete in the ‘final’ races.


You are most welcome to come and support. Please make your way down to the field to see the action! FODS will provide a refreshment stall and a second-hand school uniform stall. They will also provide fresh fruit, snacks and water for the children.


At the end of the afternoon, after the spectator chairs have been carried off the field, the children will return to class and will then be dismissed from their learning bases (early at 2:30, with permission). We will be using our normal exit registers – therefore no child can leave early without prior arrangement made through the school office.
