A sports day is a super fun event to do as part of your end of year schedule. The day’s activities are so different to your average school day. Therefore, children will be excited to get their tracksuit and runners on and do something different to the norm! Sport is a great way for children to practice their motor skills, coordination, balance and team work. It also allows them to try out new things and gives them confidence in their own ability. Similarly, it helps their classmates build confidence as they are cheered on.
Sports Day Medals: Give children a great sense of achievement!
There are various different activities that you can include on the day from egg and spoon races, relay races to obstacle courses. You can also do flat races of different lengths, long jump, skipping rope or hula hoop challenges. Using a variation of different activities allows children to practice different movements and work on their coordination and balance. It is important that the activities chosen are done based on the children’s age and ability. This ensures that the day is inclusive to all.
At the end of the sports day it is important to thank all who participated and helped out on the day. Presenting the children with medals for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, participation and great effort gives the children a great sense of achievement.
