Sports Day gives students a chance to shine through friendly competition
Before the end of the academic year, children and young people at Inscape House School enjoyed their annual fun-filled sports day. Nursery pupils and senior students aged five to 17 were all welcome to turn up at the school’s sports field and participate in the competitions, regardless of their sporting abilities. The young enthusiasts had the chance to demonstrate their sporting spirit in a range of activities, including sponge a teacher.
The event was organised by Emily Read, MUFC SEND Officer and Gareth Daynes, Deputy of Pastoral Care and Support, whose aim was to get everyone involved, including the students who don’t want to engage with sport:
“Many students at Inscape House School have previously had unpleasant experiences with sports in mainstream schools, as it can get quite competitive there. So, we’re trying to give them a chance to participate and enjoy sports activities in a relaxed and welcoming environment.”
In addition to the outdoor contests, the students could participate in indoor activities such as cornhole, table tennis, and arts and crafts.
All participants were treated to an ice lolly and refreshments to celebrate their commitment and effort.
