Feeling like getting involved?

"With the Paris Olympics taking place between26th July-11th August and Paralympics between 28th August-8th September, it’s time to get inspired for your own sports day! Here is our guide to help you run and organise a great sports day. We have developed this resource to support delivery of cross-curricular activity celebrating the sport of athletics, and to get children excited to support our Welsh athletes heading to Paris for the games.


Use the resource to suit the needs of the staff and learners in your settings. You may like to use the cross curricular resources to inspire whole class activity through teacher facilitation. The resources also suit small group work or learners could complete them independently. It’s certainly something for the adults to enjoy too; put your knowledge to the test! Over to you!"
