Activity details

Sports day is one of the most exciting days of the year for most schools and pupils. It is a great chance for young people to have a fun, engaging, physical activity experience, in which everyone can be celebrated for both their effort and achievements. For most primary schools, Sports Day is an annual event which has been run with great success for many years. 

However, right now and more than at any time in our recent history, primary school children need to have something to look forward to, have opportunities to be with each other, have fun and be active. 

This funetics Sports Day '21 is England Athletics' response to these needs and to help further support and enhance the good practices already in place in your school. Combining core PE skills with a fantastic variety of running, jumping and throwing games, it’s all to play for when your primary school joins funetics for Sports Day ‘21. 

We have developed this Sports Day Manual to support Primary Schools deliver this exciting annual event.
