SPORTS DAY ROLLED INTO 1 DAY!

KS1 AM / KS2 PM

DATE: 7th July 2017

We discussed volunteer helpers, refreshments and bringing out our ice cream 🍦 cart.

This will be a full day event. Parents and families attending are welcome to bring along a picnic for lunch.

Miss Fairbairn will need to confirm whether families should depart at lunch time and come back for KS2 sports. Perhaps could go next door onto the park playing field was suggested.

Should families stay on field whilst children play on playground only? Bearing in mind the field will be out of use for lunch time play due to set up of Sports day.

We agreed not to bring out the BBQ 🍗 for hazardous reasons, also interference with our children's booked lunches.
