Welcome to our
Virtual Sports Day 2020
Sports Day is one of the great events in our school calendar and we couldn't let a little thing like a global pandemic stop us celebrating together.
However, we do have to be safe and responsible, so this year we are going online!
For every activity that you photograph/video yourself doing (and send to your Google classroom) you will awarded 5 points for your house. Please make sure you let your teacher know if we can use your photos or videos in a film we will put together to celebrate this event.
There will be certificates for participation - the more activities you send in the more points you will get for your house and the higher award you will receive. But, as a national supermarket says, every little helps, so even if you are only able to send in one activity, it is still worth taking part.
- Emerald = green
- Ruby = red
- Topaz = yellow
- Sapphire = blue
If you can wear something that's your house colour whilst completing your challenges next week great.
If not, please don't worry, it's the taking part that counts.
