Festival of Sport information

I was asked to write a quick note regarding tomorrow's Festival of Sport.  Tomorrow morning, ALL children will take part in our House Sports Competition on the Scout Hut field.  Parents are invited to come along and cheer for your child and their House as they take part in 12 different sporting challenges.  There will be refreshments provided by the PTFA.  ALL children take part in this and compete for the House Cup and will be rewarded for their efforts.


Children return to School for lunch.  After lunch we then hold the Elite Athletics Competition on the KS2 Yard, including children from Reception to Year 6.  Once again ALL parents are invited as spectators (1.30pm arrival) as different track and field events are experienced.  During this event, children from each class who came top in the top three or so from each activity (when practicing in PE) will compete against each other.  Trophies and medals will be presented.  Not all children take part in this due to time / space restrictions, but watch and cheer on their classmates.  Text messages have been sent out to competitors for the afternoon event.  Last year it was a real family event, supporting children who have persevered over the past few weeks, refined their skill and earned their place for the afternoon.  All children will be involved in some way during the afternoon and get to experience a live sporting event with athletes of their own age.


The children have been building up to our Festival of Sport during this summer term and are well prepared for it.  It will be FANTASTIC to share this events with you and watch each child flourish and achieve in both the morning and the afternoon.
