We do egg and spoon and running races. Chalk lines on playground so they each have own lane to run in. All children get a certificate for taking part - various free sites on internet which can be used to knock up something special.Some years the children all get a medal too, if we've been able to find any cheap party bag type medals.Haven't done it with parents present so far as often easier to manage with no parents around-I know that sounda quite unwelcoming but all parents will be invited to party the foolowing week!!

hi,

 

we changed ours last year from races to a kind of carousel of activities, wwe had parachute games, hoopla, musical statues, a couple of others. Groups of about 10 and they moved around with the member of staff, parents loved it and we did finish with a race for the 2's and 3/4's and parents race. It was also a bring a teddy sports day and it was great! No tears about not winning so everyone was less stressed out :o All the children got a certificate and cheap medal, they still talk about it now too!

We do a sack race but with old pillowcases and a wellie boot relay, also their favourite is the water fill, each filling a cup and running to a big jug to fill it up! simples but fun

 

We cant wait for ours parents really get involved and its nice and personal as at the end we do a presentation for each child and they get a medal. There are often tears for parents as its combined as a lever morning. This uear we have been invited to our local school for lunch and we are having a picnic with the reception class! and the children September teacher.
