Home Sports Festival

Home Sports Festival 10th July - 13th July


This year we would like to invite the children to participate in our first Home Sports Festival which will run from Friday to Sunday.

Below are a range of  challenges for you complete- you don't have to do them all but how many can you do?  You might like to complete the activities inside, outside in the garden or at a nearby park. There is also a PDF version for you to print off if you'd like to see how many you can tick off.

We welcome whole family engagement where possible and would love see you in action via tweets to the school’s twitter account @MiddlewichPS. You can also let your teachers know how well you have been doing on the class blogs - look out for the teachers' sports day blogs.

We hope you have lots of fun and we look forward to seeing what you have been doing.
