Reception Sports Day is organised and led by trained Year 6 pupils who will lead the children around a circuit of activities arranged around the Key Stage 1 and 2 playgrounds. So when you arrive, please ask a member of staff or Year 6 sports leader to locate the activity station where your child will be. Please follow your child’s colour group around the circuit of activities and help cheer them on.

At Reception Sports Day all children are winners because they all take part. We encourage all parents to support this ethos as the children develop their understanding of good sportsmanship. You may say a quick goodbye and congratulations to your child before we lead them off to lunch at 12.00. We hope you enjoy the morning with us.
