Dear families
On your marks…get ready…GO!

Sports Day 10 July
We are inviting your child to take part in our Virtual Sports Day this year.  The table below sets out the activities with a short description and an example of how this can be carried out.  There are KS1 and KS2 medals available for some activities and we have also included some just for fun!  Please send in any photos or videos of your Virtual Sports Day to your year group email and we will award some prizes for the most creative challenges!

Those children in school will be able to take part in some of these activities on Friday but are more than welcome to continue the other events over the weekend at home.
