Every year, throughout the world, schools undertake the organisation of an ‘Annual School Sports Day’.

A huge occasion that is planned meticulously, not only the time of the year and day it will be staged but also sometimes an alternative venue to run such a large event.  

When I was at primary school ‘Sports Day’ was a fantastic chance to have a go at a weird and wonderful activity that you may not get the chance to do at any other time throughout the year such as; egg and spoon, sack racing, welly throwing and the dreaded three legged race. Back then children would have been selected to take part in their age group and may only have one go, making it a selective and sometimes negative experience.

Fortunately, times have changed for the better, most children will get the opportunity to participate in a number of challenges which involve some of the classics and this certainly makes the environment a more fun and positive one. One thing for sure is that the children should take centre stage giving them the opportunity to showcase their sporting prowess, learn important lessons about competition and enjoy a happy, healthy environment in the company of class mates, teachers and parents.

This year at BSB Sanlitun we ran four separate sports days across the school from EYFS to Year 6. The children took part in a variety of multi-skill based activities with a huge emphasis and focus on fun. Ensuring that every child can achieve on the day! Children were organised around their house colours which most children wore on the day. The teams performed in every task for points this culminated in a fabulous win for the YELLOW HOUSE in both Key Stage 1 and 2!
