Images from last year's Sport Days in Primary.
Each Sports Day will be for half a day and involve two year groups. This is to ensure that competitors have maximum participation time, without battling the summer sun for extended periods of time.
The events during the week are as follows:
- Monday 28 April – EYC and KS1 at Primary Campus.
- Tuesday 29 April – Years 3 & 4 at Primary Campus.
- Wednesday 30 April – Years 5 & 6 at Secondary Campus
Your son or daughter should arrive at school in their PE kit and house t-shirt. We strongly recommend that they bring a water bottle, sun cream, light healthy snacks and a sun hat.
Parents are more than welcome to come and spectate and refreshments will be available during each event. We hope that your son or daughter enjoys their day of sporting fun and prowess!

Please remember to send a filled water bottle each day as the weather is getting warmer and it’s important that the children stay hydrated.
Years 1 and 2
Monday 28 April, 1pm - 3:20pm Primary Campus
All children will take part in each of the activities as they move around a range of stations through the afternoon; there are also plenty of rest areas planned in order that the children can drink and get some shade. Some activities will be based around fun games and some will have a more athletic feel. The activities are designed to challenge the students physically but also help them have fun whilst doing exercise.
Years 3 and 4
Tuesday 29 April, 9am - 12:30pm Primary Campus
All children will compete in each of the activities as they move around a range of stations throughout the morning; there are also plenty of rest areas planned in order that the children can drink and get some shade. Some activities will be based around fun games and some will have a more athletic feel but all will be competitive with all the points going towards a final Year 3 and 4 sports day result.
Years 5 and 6
Wednesday 30 April, 8:30am – 12:50pm Secondary Sports Field
During this week, the students have been busy in their houses organising and choosing their events. All students will have the opportunity to participate in a minimum of 2 events .There is also an option to take part in a fun tug-of-war and House Team skipping.
After registration, the students will assemble on the Secondary Sports Field. The day will begin with a warm up and stretches. The events have been designed around the FOBISIA designated athletic events. Years 5 and 6 students have been using curricular PE lessons to practice their events.
Certain events (track, high jump, skipping and tug of war) will be timetabled events. The remaining events of; long, triple, or three springs jump; quoit throw; shot putt and basketball push are non- timetabled events. This means that competitors can freely move around these events and perform when they have the chance and there is an opening at the events station.
We hope you can join us to cheer on the children at their Sports Days next week!
