Sports Day 2019
Thursday 6th June 2019
Dear Parents and Carers
Following positive feedback from pupils and families last year, our Inter House Sports Day on Wednesday 12th June, weather permitting, is going to follow a similar format as 2018 but with a few subtle differences. In order to promote our ethos of Together Everyone Achieves More, as well as promoting the value of collaborative working, there will be a carousel of activities which each house team will participate in collectively for five minutes. There will then follow some individual running races and house team sprint relays for those pupils who wish to compete against their peers.
Points will be awarded for good sporting behaviour, cheering each other on as well as success in the challenges and house team relays. After 5 minutes at each challenge the score will be announced by the scorer, and their decision is final. Because not everyone will participate in the individual running races, points will not be awarded to teams for these events. However, pupils will receive a sticker for their exertions.
In order to manage this effectively, there will be two separate events. Key Stage 2 pupils will compete from 9:45am, followed by Reception and Key Stage 1 pupils from 11:00am. Family members will be invited to attend a picnic lunch on the Key Stage 1 playground afterwards where the Academy Council will be selling refreshments with Friends of Regis.
Below is a map to show where and when the activities and races will take place. For health and safety reasons you must always remain in the spectator area – this is the area between the sprint track and the hedgerow. However, you may follow your child during the carousel of activities up and down the sports track. When the team activities have finished, the children will sit in their classes before taking part in individual running races and some sprint relays, if they have opted to do these beforehand.
On the day, please send children into school dressed ready for Sports Day in their house colour. If you are unsure what this is, please see your child’s class teacher.
In accordance with guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office, spectators are welcome to take videos and digital images of their children at school events for their own personal use. To respect everyone’s privacy and in some cases protection, these images should not be published or made publicly available on social networking sites.
Thank you for your support.
