We have designed a carousel style of Sports Day where all children get to compete against their class in a range of sporting activities. Parents tend to follow the children round as they take part in events like – sack race, netball shoot, sprint, triple jump, javelin etc. The children are split in to four houses and score points in the event for their house. The event finishes with class sprint races and the much anticipated results of the whole event.
The children are encouraged to take part in competitive events in which they are all supported to do their best. Previously Sports Day tended to be done on the track and often involved the children spending a lot of time watching and very little time competing – our new Olympic Day Sports Day really does get all the children active and the range of activities gives all the children an opportunity to succeed.
