Many schools are abandoning Sports Day due to the risks linked to Covid 19. We know that children love this event and want to put the effort in to allow this event to go ahead in some way. We have therefore decided that each year group will have their own mini sports day. Here are the dates and times –
29th June 2021
Year Reception 9.15am – 10.30am
Year 3 10.45am – 11.45am
Year 4 1.45pm – 3.00pm
30th June 2021
Year 1 9.15am – 10.30am
Year 5 10.45am – 11.45am
Year 2 1.45pm – 3.00pm
2nd July 2021
Year 6 1.45pm – 3.00pm
Usually, we run a House competition across school on sports day. However, due to the current circumstances and house allocations, this is not possible to continue in the same format. Miss Jones and Mr Irvine are busy working on teams within the year group. Children will undoubtedly tell you about that as soon as they know.
The sports day will be carried out on the sports field. We ask that parents wait by the main gates onto the school playground, where a member of staff will let you in. Children will be on one side and adults will be socially distanced on the other side of the track. The children may be sat in class team bubbles, but this may change if the Covid 19 restrictions are eased by then. At this time, we are stating that parents must wear a mask for the duration of the event. Again, we will review this restriction in line with guidelines and advice and we will keep you informed.
Due to the time the children will be outside, could you please ensure that your child has applied sun cream before coming to school and brings a hat with them. Drinks will be provided for them at various stages.
Regardless of what happens Covid wise we will stick to the Year Group events this year and will ensure the children have a great time.
