Sports Day 2019

Our Sports Day will take place on Friday 28th June, starting at 9.15 am. We hope many of you will be able to join us for the morning. 

Our Sports Day is designed to enable children to:

  • Show their PE skills
  • Begin to develop an understanding and appreciation of competition
  • Have fun!

Children will be grouped into four team colours—red, yellow, green and blue.

PE Kit

All children should come to school wearing their PE kit (please leave uniform at home that day) and should have a pair of plimsolls or trainers in school that fit.  Book bags will be required on this day.

Jewellery

Any jewellery, including pierced earrings should be left at home for Sports Day.

Water Bottles

All children will need to bring their school water bottles to school on this day as they will be using these for refreshments on the field.  If your child does not have a school bottle, on this occasion a named bottle of water may be sent instead.  Water only please.

Sun Hats and Sun Cream

There is no shade on the field so please provide a named sun hat and also apply sun cream to pupils in the morning before they come to school.

Woodland Path

Please take care on the woodland path as you make your way to the field.

Programme for the Morning

8.35—9.00 am — Gates open in the large playground

8.50 am — Field gates open for parents to make their way down to the field. Parents arriving late will need to wait in the playground until all the children are on the field (see below).

9.15—9.20 am — Children lead down to the field in classes.  During the first part of the morning pupils will work in year groups and show their developing physical skills.  Parents are welcome to change their viewing position between year groups and may like to bring a portable chair and/or a picnic blanket. (Please see overleaf for a rough layout of these activities so you can choose a suitable viewing position for each year group).

10.00 am approx — Parents will be directed to a viewing position on the far side of the track by the slope (see overleaf). Please remain on the far side of the running track during these activities. Competitors will gather on the other side of the track in their class groups.  Each year group will take part in a relay race for their team colour.

Throughout the morning points will be awarded and the winning team will be presented with a trophy cup.

10.30 am approx — Race for parents

At the end of the event parents are requested to remain on the field whilst the children are taken back to their classrooms.  It would be very helpful if parents brought any PE or sports equipment from the field to the school hall. 

If the weather forecast changes dramatically as we go through the week, we will contact you by ParentMail. 


May Half Term Holiday Activities

Please find attached below details of some local activity clubs and sessions that will be taking place around the area during the half term break. 


Tuesday 23rd April 2019

We hope you have all enjoyed the Easter Holiday and the recent sunny weather. We have a very busy term ahead and we are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at the normal start time of 8.45am.

A Uniform reminder: Please make sure all items of clothing are clearly named so that if they go missing they can be returned to their owners. Also please check PE footwear to make sure that it still fits your child. This is particularly  important this term when PE is mainly outside. All items of school uniform, including the lemon yellow striped dresses, can be obtained from Brendas. The PTA also hold Nearly New uniform supplies.

Monday 11th March

The children really enjoyed the World Book Day celebrations that were held in school today. All classes attended the Assembly and the children were delighted to watch the staff act out the story of 'Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar.' There was much laughter and amusement! After Assembly the staff turned the hall into a library for the day and the children enjoyed visiting various areas to listen to stories. Other book related activities took place in classes during the rest of the day. It was lovely to hear the children talk about their favourite parts of the day and how much they had enjoyed the opportunity to focus on books.

We do hope you will continue to enjoy books with your children and take time to visit a local library. World Book Day tokens were given out today so do look in bookbags - these can be used in most bookshops!

School uniform:·The children are proud of their uniform and we teach them to look after their property in school. PLEASE help them by naming everything! Coats must have a hook to hang on pegs and it would be most helpful if parents could add a hanging loop to sweatshirts.
