Home Sports Day

We are inviting all our pupils to take part in our ‘Home Sports Day’.

Each day during the week beginning 29th June we shall post two games for your child to have a go at. The activities will use equipment that you will have at home and will be activities that you should be able to do in your garden, living room, bedroom or even your kitchen!

The activities will be posted at about 9am through ClassDojo, Twitter (@SnarestoneP), and on the ‘Home Sports Day’ page of our website which can be found via the ‘Home Learning’ tab.

You can either do the activities each day, or save them up for a big family sports day on Friday or next weekend. On Friday we’ll post a certificate which you can download for your child.

We would love it if you can post pictures and movies of our pupils taking part in the activities. These can be posted through ClassDojo, on Twitter or emailing them to

Good luck!!

DAY 1:

Home Sports Day: Our first activities are . . .
1. Rubbish bin basketball - scrunch up some used paper (or use a sponge ball if you have one) and see how many times you can get it in the bin/box. Move further away to challenge yourself. You can have 10 goes.
2. Egg and spoon - how many lengths of the garden/room can you do in a minute? If you drop it, pick it up and carry on. You might need to boil the egg first (or use a small ball).

We can't wait to see your photos!
