All children and staff at Michael Faraday are extremely excited about the grand plans that we have for Sports Relief! An entire week of sporting events has been planned, to help raise money for Sports Relief, as well as to improve our fitness. A different sporting session will take place each lunchtime, under the expert guidance of various staff members. Children can pay the small amount of 50p towards Sports Relief, to take part in each activity. The timetable is as follows:
Monday – cheerleading
Tuesday – obstacle course
Wednesday – hoola hoop-a-thon
Thursday – skipping
Sports Relief will come to a grand finale at Michael Faraday on Friday. We have a major event planned where we are challenging all Michael Faraday children and staff to run or walk the Sports Relief Mile. The entire school will spend the morning at Burgess Park for the event. Year 6 will be using their maths knowledge to measure out the exact mile distance.
Our friend Wilson from Bacon’s College has very kindly volunteered his time to help with the warm-up. Sponsorship forms for the Sports Relief Mile will be sent home with the children before the end of the week.
We are also inviting children to come to school on Friday 19th March wearing the Sports Relief colour of red. A small donation of £1 towards Sports Relief will help us to raise extra funds. Finally, Sports Relief will come to a close at Michael Faraday on Friday with an afternoon football match.
We are confident that Sports Relief week will be a huge success at Michael Faraday, as well as tremendous fun! Please become involved.
