Naomi Yeates has contributed a number of resources related to a Sports Fun Day that her school runs. It uses mixed-aged teams across the whole primary school, with Year 6 acting as ‘team leaders’. The activities are multi-skill based so there is a huge range but the most important thing is the focus on fun. Every child can achieve on this day! Most schools should have the equipment required.
The teachers, TAs and parents help out with explaining each station to the teams as they arrive, and each team has a teacher / TA attached to them to score. We spend 5 minutes at each station, and this is plenty of time for everyone to have a go.
