Sports Day Letter 21.7.22

Dear SWPS Families,

You are invited to come and watch and even take part in Snape Wood’s Primary Sports Day on Thursday 21st July from 12:50. Both KS1 and KS2 will be coming together to celebrate their athletic talents, showcase their dribbling skills and put their bodies to the test.

We are planning to run the event in a way which allows all our children to join in and succeed as part of a team. We have planned 12 activity stations where the children will rotate around. To finish, we will end with the sprint races – parents and teachers welcome!

The children will need a PE kit: a white t-shirt, shorts and trainers, a sun hat, bottle of water, we would ask that your child has sun cream applied prior to arrival at school, but please provide additional sun cream for self-application prior to the events. 

There will be designated areas for parents alongside many of the events so you are able to cheer on your child’s team. We hope to see as many parents, carers and grandparents supporting the children as possible on the day.

As you know, the weather is getting very hot and we have little shade on site at school, so it is vital that your children have sun cream, a water bottle and a hat. As parents too, we advise that you think about your own wellbeing – an umbrella works well at providing shade. Additionally, please feel free to bring a picnic blanket or chairs as we cannot provide seating in the field.

Finally, just like we did at the Summer Concert, we are unable to let children go home early as this is very much part of our school day. We are inviting you in to share in all that we do.  We are also unable to let parents in and out after the gates shut as all our staff are with the children.

Thank you all. I look forward to seeing you all there.

Mr Wright
