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. For younger children you may like to award everyone with a participation or super effort medal. Ultimately, a sports day is a great opportunity for children to partake in activities that gets them moving and they have lots of fun with!

Graduation Medals – A Great Addition to Any Graduation Ceremony!

Whether you have an end of the year celebration or a formal graduation, it is fun to have time set aside for the children before they move on. Transition of any kind is a huge part of a child’s life. Therefore it is very important to mark each of these occasions. Celebrating the end of a school year also celebrates new beginnings as the children move to primary or secondary school.

It is important to recognise and celebrate all the work and personal growth for each individual child. Acknowledging the children’s hard work encourages a love of learning throughout their younger years and into adulthood. Honouring children with a medal on graduation day gives them a sense of accomplishment and pride. The medals are ideal for presenting to children on your special graduation day or end of year celebration. They will become a treasured keepsake for all families.

Children will feel truly special when you present them with these pieces and will be delighted to take them home. They will be proud showing them to parents, grandparents and friends who may not be able to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions. So if you are beginning to organise your celebration, order your medals now so that you will have them for your special day!
