Virtual Sports Day Event
We hope you all are keeping well and staying safe. We are hugely disappointed that due to the current pandemic circumstances we are unfortunately unable to run and host our traditional annual Sports Day event, as usual for this time of the year. It is a fantastic way to celebrate our pupils’ efforts and achievements in sports and to end the sporting year.
However, not to be deterred and remaining true to the school’s vision of diverse and exciting curriculum, we have planned to run this event remotely. We would like to invite the whole school community to participate in our Virtual Sports Day between Monday 6th July and Thursday 9th July 2020. Choose from a variety of events, get the whole family involved, be that indoors or out in the garden or your local park.
Full details of this event is attached for your information. Despite the current restrictions I am absolutely sure that we can all get involved and still enjoy these traditional events.
If you have any questions regarding the Virtual Sports Day Event do not hesitate to contact us.
The Virtual Sports Day event will consist of 11 athletic challenges and we would like to invite the whole School community (pupils, siblings, parents, staff, governors and other family members) to take part. All participants will represent their child’s/children’s allocated House group, whilst also having the opportunity of winning individual virtual ‘Athlete of the Class’ awards within their own categories. The winners and the winning House group will be announced on Monday 13th July.
All family members are encouraged to take part in this event, however where this isn’t possible, it is strongly recommended that parents discuss the relevant health and safety guidelines of each event with their children before allowing them to participate in the events. This will be the last full School sporting activity of this academic year and we are looking forward to maximum participation across all the year groups, be it at home, in your gardens and/or in a local park; following the Government social distancing guidelines. All information regarding the event will also be made available to pupils and yourselves via Seesaw/ ClassDojo, on Thursday 2nd July, which will also include a pre-formulated scoresheet.
The events will be:
Throw and catch a rolled up pair of socks
Alternate leg lift
Press up challenge
Pan and sock (egg and spoon)
Chalkhill Open Space Run
The populated scoresheet will need to be re-uploaded to your child’s Seesaw/ ClassDojo account by no later than 2.00pm on Friday 10th July 2020 to be entered into Virtual Sports Day. To celebrate the efforts and achievements of the school community during our Virtual Sports Day, we would encourage all families to take pictures of themselves competing within the events and upload these with the scoresheet to your child/children's Seesaw/ClassDojo account. Any photos uploaded may be used for a celebratory school video of the event, so please only upload photos you are happy to be shown on the school website/social media outlets.
Staying active during this time is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and so, as with the previous PE and Sporting Challenges, we would ask you to continue to encourage your child/children to participate in all the activities and this year, you can also take up the challenge yourselves and join in.
Thank you for your on-going support at all our events this year, let us look forward to another full year of sporting achievements next year. The details of the event and the scoring sheets can be found underneath.
Yours in Sport, Stay Active,
