Hop , Skip and Jump into July

Are you sports day ready?


July is normally the time we would have out sports day. This year we will be doing some activities in school but I want you to do some at home as well.

I would like you to design you own sports day with different activities and anything you have around the house. It doesn’t have to be a traditional sports day you can be as creative as you like. Here are some things you may want to think about and do.


Week 1

Plan the activities you want to do , decide how many activities you are going to do and who will be involved e.g how far can you jump , a target throw, obstacle race etc..

Make a list of any equipment that you will need and begin to collect the things you want.

Make badges, rosettes , certificates , medals etc.. for all who are taking part

Make sports day flame ( like an Olympic torch ) for your opening ceremony


Week 2


Make sure you have a finish line.

Write instructions to for the activities if you need to.

Decide whether you are going to do an activity every day or all the activities on one day.

Invite your family to take part.

Make a poster to tell everyone about your sports day.



Week 3


It’s sports day – don’t forget to send pictures via Hwb/Seesaw/Twitter/Facebook

Can’t wait to see what you do.
