Sports Day Timetable 15th of June
Each class will take part in a sprint and novelty races, some activities with their class and they will visit the cake sale. As we are at the Man O War, the times of the races are approximate and siblings may be running at the same time. All children will arrive at school at normal school time except for 5th and 6th class who will arrive at 9. The roll will be called so each child needs to be onsite on time.
Then classes will start to leave and will be bussed up to the Man O War. It is important that we all travel together in our class grouping up to the pitch as this makes it easier for the teachers to keep their class with them and keep them safe. Please do not drive them up to the pitch.
Please do not bring your child to the cake sale as each class has a timetable. This ensures that there will be goodies for all the children. The cake sale will open for business at 10.30.
