Re-arrangement of Sports Days

Dear parents/carers,

Unfortunately this morning we had to cancel our planned sports day due to the wet conditions. However, I’m pleased to say that we have a back-up plan so that all of the children still get to take part in sporting events this summer.

Our sports days will now be held at Lemington Riverside on the Main Playground on the following dates and times. Due to pupil/parent numbers, the events are split 4 ways.

Tuesday 5th July at 1:30pmYear 1 and Year 2 Sports Day.

Wednesday 6th July at 1:30pmYear 5 and Year 6 Sports Day.

Monday 11th July at 1:30pmYear 3 and Year 4 Sports Day.

Thursday 14th July at 1:30pmNursery and Reception Sports Day.  

  •   Children should come to school in their PE kit that day and bring a bottle of water/fruit squash (no fizzy or isotonic drinks please).
  •   Children will compete in a variety of races on a track marked on the playground. There will be stickers for all competing and medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each event.
  •   Parents/carers of children competing are more than welcome to come and watch – please enter via the main playground gates on Sugley Street (gates will be opened at 1:25pm). We will have a mams/dads race at the end! Parents/carers must remain in the designated viewing area throughout the event please.
  •   Year 6 are also completing a sports leadership programme and will be setting up other activities and a healthy eating stall.
  •   At the end of the event you are welcome to take your child home, or they can remain in school until the normal time if you wish.

Hopefully the Great British weather will be kinder to us in the next couple of weeks than it was today!

Best wishes,

Mr. Heeley (Headteacher) and Mr. Carter (PE & Healthy Schools Leader)
