Sports Day Information

3rd Jun 2024

Sports Day Timetable 7th of June

(All within the normal school day times)

Each class will take part in a sprint and novelty races, some activities with their class and they will visit the cake sale. As we are at the Man O War, the times of the races are approximate and siblings may be running at the same time. All children will arrive at school at normal school time except for 5th and 6th class who will arrive at 9.  The roll will be called so each child needs to be onsite on time.

Then classes will start to leave and will be bussed up to the Man O War. It is important that we all travel together in our class grouping up to the pitch as this makes it easier for the teachers to keep their class with them and keep them safe. Please do not drive them up to the pitch. There are two permission requests on Aladdin. One is to give permission to go to Sports Day, the other is if you intend to collect your child from the pitch. We need to know this information in advance.

All children are expected to take part. If your child is injured you will need to send in a note to class teacher.

Please do not bring your child to the cake sale as each class has a timetable. This ensures that there will be goodies for all the children. The cake sale will open for business at 10.30.

If you intend to bring your child home from the Man O War you will need to give permission to bring home on Aladdin before Wednesday the 5th of June. Teachers will make a list of the children who will not return by bus to school. This is most important and no child/parent should decide on the day that they are going home with parents, the school needs to know this in advance.
