Virtual Sports Day – Tuesday 23rd June 2020
I hope you are all well. As the end of the final term approaches, we are reminded that Sports Day is an event to which our pupils very much look forward. Whilst we cannot run Sports Day as we would normally do, we still hope to bring Year 8-11 pupils the same fun and excitement by holding a Virtual Sports Day for them!
To participate in Virtual Sports Day, each Year 8-11 pupil will be invited to complete three compulsory challenges and, if they wish, two additional advanced optional challenges, at home. They will then complete the results form and submit this with their evidence via Google Classroom. Pupils may wish to wear their PE gear whilst completing their tasks to help them to get into the competitive spirit!
The school website has a detailed document outlining the challenges for each year group. This will also be posted in our Google classrooms and on the PE Department’s Twitter feed.
We have reminded pupils of the following important information:
When you are taking photos/recording a video clip to send to others or for uploading, take a minute and look at the photo/ review the video clip. Here are some basic tips on taking a safe photo/video clip:
- Can you see any personal information, like the street name of where you live? If so, take the photo/video clip from a different position.
- Are your location details included with the picture/video clip? If so, you should disable this information on your device.
- Make sure everybody in the photo/video clip is happy for you to upload it.
- Show it to your parents. If you can't show it to them, you should not send/upload it.
We would very much encourage all pupils in Year 8-11 to take part and look forward to the fun and exciting atmosphere the preparation for and the Virtual Sports Day itself is sure to bring.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
