I hope you are keeping well.
We, Bradford City Community Foundation, are working with the English Football League Trust (EFLT) to promote a ‘home style’ Sports Day. Thousands of young people up and down the country will be missing out on their annual Sports Day, so, with the help of your school, we can provide our children and young people with the opportunity to take part in their very own Sports Day.
The day is aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils (KS1 are more than welcome to join in if Parents/Carers feel they are capable of the activities) and can be delivered any afternoon next week (18th – 22nd May). Attached to this email is the Joy of Moving Home Festival pack. This would need sharing with parents/guardians of all KS2 pupils and then it would be up to them to pick an afternoon next week to undertake the activities; it really is that simple! The files do include sections which are more effective when printed but this is not compulsory. The afternoon lasts for three hours and the children will be tasked with various physical activities around their house to complete.
All we would need from yourself is confirmation that your school will be taking part and the number of pupils you have in KS2. Effectively, the deadline for joining is next Friday, 22nd May at 11am; this would then give your pupils the opportunity to complete their Sports Day on the Friday afternoon. Children will be invited to ask parents to post photographs on social media using the hashtag #JomHomeFestival…this is completely voluntary of course. Families will also have the chance to win £500 with a competition detailed in the attached booklet.
On a different note, we at Bradford City Community Foundation have been supporting schools with essential food items, hot meals and supermarket food vouchers for families in need. We have engaged with over 40 schools already and are keen to reach many more. If your school is in need of any support, please let me know and we will arrange for some food/vouchers to be dropped off!
I really look forward to hearing from you and having you signed up to the Joy of Moving Home Festival!
