SUMMER SPORTING FUN – DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

Tuesday 17th June 2014– Race Day

We are holding a traditional ‘races’ Sports Day. This will be held on the banking area.  Each year group will be involved in a flat race and then, time allowing, one novelty race of their choice e.g. Egg and Spoon or Wheelbarrow.  Every 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner will receive House Points which will go towards the Kirkhill House Trophy, awarded to the winning house at the end of the session in June.

Parents watch out- there will even be a Parents’ Race so please wear your trainers!!!

 Thursday 19th June 2014 – Activity Stations

The Activity Stations will allow all children to participate in a variety of mini sporting activities such as Hockey, Basketball, Javelin and a Tug-of-War!  These events will be held within the MUGA and P6/7 Playground Areas.  The children will be split into House Teams and the winning house will receive a medal and all points gained on this day will again be added on towards the totals for the Kirkhill House Trophy. As the children are taking part in ‘House’ teams we would appreciate it if your child could wear an item of clothing in their house colour on both Sports Days.  For example, a child in Arran may wear a yellow t-shirt OR yellow shorts OR a yellow cap, hairband OR even all three!

 Timings for both the Race Day and Activity Stations are as follows:

 P1 – 3:  10.00 a.m. – 12.15 p.m.

P4 – 7: 1.00 p.m. – 2.45 p.m.

 To accommodate the Sports Days the timings for the school day must be altered a little.   Lunch for the P4 – P7 will be at 11.40 a.m. – 12.30 p.m.  P1 – 3 lunches will remain at the same time.  The crossing patrol will be notified of the timings changes for these two days.

 If there is torrential rain on either day, unfortunately the event may have to be cancelled.
