Dear Parent / Carer,

Monkton Academy will be running their annual sports week to end the summer term of 2022.

Detailed below is a breakdown of the activities for the week. Students will be required to attend MA in their school PE for Monday and Tuesday (white top, black shorts or leggings and MA sports top), with any other, suitable, sports clothing for Wed – Fri. Lunch will run as normal that week but please can you send additional, non fizzy, drinks so students can be hydrated. There will, of course, be the option to refill water bottles during the days.

Monday 18th July

Y3/4/5 Intra-school sports day. Students will rotate around 5 different sports activities delivered by a variety of external sports coaches. They will receive flyers detailing more information about those clubs and activities beyond the school day should they wish to pursue this option.

Activities will include; Archery, Athletics, Boccia, Cricket, Curling, Dance, Football, Rugby and Tennis.

Y6 will be attending the Y6 leavers day – details will be sent separately.

Tuesday 19th July

There will be a designated area for parents / carers to spectate from – please can you remain in this area and not cross to the middle of the field area. This will help us to maintain the safety of all students on our site.

The ice cream van will be in school in the afternoon. All students will get the opportunity to purchase ice cream with their class teacher – please do not buy them out of this time.

Wednesday 20th July

Students will select, with their class teacher, a sports activity to participate in that morning. The afternoon will include a Stunt Bike Show from an external provider on the yard.

Thursday 21st July

House treats day – all within school over the course of the day.

Friday 21st July

Inflatables day and weather permitting, slip and slide in the afternoon. We have arranged for a number of large inflatables to be on the field for the students to enjoy. After lunch, if the weather permits, we will have a slip and slide option for those students who choose to participate – they do not have to. If students are wanting to participate they will need shorts and tshirt which they don’t mind getting wet, a change of clothes and a towel. The ice cream van will be on site in the afternoon.

Y6 leavers assembly will be at 10:45 am – parents of Y6 students are invited to attend.

As you can see it is a very busy, exciting end of term for all students. Please help your child to be fully involved in all activities by wearing the correct clothing for the activities, be hydrated well and donations towards purchasing ice creams would be appreciated.


If you have any questions please contact the school office.
