As a mathematician
  • Devise your own scoring system to keep track of who might be the overall winner or winning team across all your races.


  • Time and record each competitor’s attempt at the obstacle race. Who had the quickest time? What is the difference between the fastest and slowest competitor’s time?


  • Measure the distance jumped by each competitor. Who has jumped the furthest?
As a writer
  • Make a poster to advertise your Sports Day. How will you convince your family or friends to take part?

  • Draw a bird’s eye view (from above looking down) plan of how your sports day set up will look. Include a key. Where will spectators and competitors sit? Where will refreshments be served? Where is the start line? Where will equipment be stored? Will there be a chill our area to recover? Will you need a medical station?


  • Perhaps you could end your sports day with a picnic! Prepare some healthy snacks with a grown up.
