Good morning boys and girls,

We hope you managed to submit your scores for yesterday’s virtual sports day.  Everyone looks to have done amazingly well, trying their best and overcoming some real challenges. If you didn’t manage to do each of the different challenges, you can still have a go at them. They’re great fun! Try to find a break in the rain to get out and get sporty.

Remember to keep working on your personal challenges. Can you match your scores from earlier in the week or even better them. An improvement by one is still an improvement. Don’t get disheartened if you have a day where you don’t match your previous score. This picture might help you have a positive mindset:

Today, you are going to design a ticket for a sporting event. It could be for any sport! Choose a sport that you enjoy watching or a sport that you usually play or participate in yourself. You could create a ticket for a team match, a competition or a sports session that you have taken part in. You could even design one for a PE lesson or our virtual sports day.
Make sure your ticket:
 is eye catching and colourful
 contains a picture of the sport
 shows the time and date of the sporting event
Here are a few ideas for sports tickets. There is also an example of a template design but it would be wonderful if you could design your own.
Have fun and please email us your designs.

Whole school sporting activities

Sadly, our favourite events of the year – sports days – cannot take place in it’s normal format this year. However, the next best thing is to take part in a virtual sports day and we’re excited to be joining the West Yorkshire Virtual School Games Sports Day on Tuesday 7th July. The day will involve the children taking part in multiple activities with the chance to compete against other schools across the county. There will be a number of prizes on offer too.
What do you need to do?
Have a look at the guidance for parents/carers to help you prepare for the day.
When does it take place?
There is a live opening ceremony shown here at 10am on Tuesday 07 July and the activities can be completed at any point in the day.
Is this just for children who are back at school?
No – the activities can be done by children at school and at home. The sports day will be one of your child’s home learning activities on the day.
What are the activities?
The parent guide gives details of all the activities and instructions will also be given on the video released on the day.
Do children have to complete all the activities?
We would encourage the children to have a go at as many as they can but they don’t have to complete them all.
How do we submit results?
This is the link to submit results (live from 10am on 07 July up till 12pm on the 08 July). All children’s results will be added to their school score.
We would love to see the virtual sports day in action so please share any photos of your children taking part and good luck to everyone!
