Dear Parents & Carers,
As you are aware, Sports Day is on Tuesday 24th May at 12:30pm. After the last couple of years with little to no opportunities for parents and carers to attend events such as these, we are so looking forward to seeing you there.
If the weather is inclement, a decision will be made at 10.30am and, if the event has to be cancelled, parents will be informed via email and on the school website.
On the day, children are asked to come to school in their PE kits. This includes their House coloured t-shirt, shorts and trainers; however, they may wear their PE tracksuit over their kit. They will need to remember a water bottle and, if the weather is bright, should put sun-cream on before school. We would also recommend a cap or hat to keep the off their heads as they will be outside for 2 hours or more.
Sports Day takes place on the school field. This is accessible for parents and carers by the side gate in the overflow part of the car park via the main gate on Mill Lane.
Please follow these rules so that the afternoon runs as smoothly as possible:
To ensure the safety of the children, the following procedure will take place at the end of the day:
On Friday 27th May, Greasby Junior School will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. As this is the last day of the half term, it is our usual non-uniform day with a donation of £1. However, we invite all of the pupils to come to school dressed in the colours of the Union Jack Flag: red, white and blue.
On this day, the pupils will participate in a range of activities to understand the importance of this milestone event for the Queen and country. In addition, each year group will also be focusing on a particular decade of Queen Elizabeth’s reign so far. They will be learning all about what life was like during that time: the key events, music, fashions and inventions.
At lunch time, we are holding a GJS picnic on the field so we are able to celebrate as a whole school. Each child wishing to take part will have their own paper bag to decorate for the day, and our cooks will be preparing the picnic. This will include:
The price of this lunch is £2.20 and is to be paid in your child’s Arbor account. Please complete this brief form to indicate that your child will or will not be having a school picnic lunch so we are able to order and make the correct amount of food. If your child chooses to bring a packed lunch on the day, they will still be joining everyone on the field so we can eat, celebrate and play.
