As the end of the school year draws near, we would be looking forward to our annual Inter House Sports Day, but as we find ourselves in these unusual times, unfortunately, Sports Day, as we know it, will be unable to take place.

However, as Sports Day is a highlight of the year for many children, parents and staff we have been working on a way to make Sports Day happen.  This year we will be holding a Virtual Interhouse Sports Week.

Below you will find a list of challenges the staff have set for you.  There are 18 Challenges and I suggest you take on 3 or 4 each afternoon this week. Each challenge lasts 1 minute.  Once completed please send your results back to us using the online entry form available on this page by 12.00 Monday 13th July.

Before starting your virtual sports week activities, you might like to take a look at our wonderful Moor Hall staff demonstrating the challenges set for you.

Mums, Dads, Carers if you would like to join in your very welcome just fill out a separate on-line entry form and send it back to us.

Result will be announced on Thursday 16th July on the school website.

We appreciate that these are challenging times and everyone has access to different equipment in their homes.  We have, therefore, tried to choose challenges which require little or no equipment, and equipment that can easily be replaced with household items.  Please don’t hesitate to make any equipment replacements you see fit in order for it to work best for you.

Please remember your house team spirit.  It would be lovely if you dressed in your house colours.  If you happen to take any pictures you can share them with us on Friday afternoon either on the class email or Twitter @moorhallprimary and #virtualsportsday.

Armstrong – Yellow
Bolt – Green
Cadbury – Blue
Ennis - Red
Good luck, have fun and stay safe!
