Olympics Summer School – 23-27 August 2021
Thank you to those who have already confirmed a place for their child on this event. If you haven’t done this yet please email Mr McCreesh as soon as possible to assist with planning for the event.
Dates & Times
Sessions will start at 9:30am each day and will finish at 2:30pm.
School will be open to welcome pupils upon arrival from 9am. Pupils can enter and exit via the main Reception at the front of school. Drop off and collection can take place from the car park at the front of school (this will not be possible from September, when the school reopens to all pupils and staff).
Break & Lunch
Please alert us to any allergies your child may have. Pupils should arrive each day with a packed lunch, which they can have during day. We have scheduled a 15minutes break and a 45minutes lunch each day. A selection of food items may be available from the school canteen too.
Suitable Dress for Activities
Each day will involve a mixture of academic and enrichment sessions so please encourage your child to dress appropriately for each day. This is likely to involve wearing trainers and appropriate casual clothing.
Morning sessions will be based in classrooms, when pupils will explore different aspects of the Olympics with links to their academic development in Maths, English, Science, History etc. Afternoon sessions will be more active or creative, where pupils will be encouraged to take part in team events, possibly outside or in the Sports Hall (weather permitting).
We plan to close the week with a Olympic Closing Ceremony, where pupils will be encourage to present what they have learned during the week and display some of the creative work they have completed. We also plan to issue prizes at various stages throughout the week to those pupils who have engaged well and who impress us.
