Sports Fun Day Certificates

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by Deso, May 13, 2010.

  1. Our school this year is holding a fun based sports day instead of the usual sprints etc. We would like to present all the children in the school with a " I took part in the fun day" certificate. Does anyone know where I can download a simple certificate that would suit our purpose. Thank you.

    Is it really necessary to give a certificate for participating in something which is fun? Where would you draw the line? Will certificates be given out for participating in playtime next? I'm sorry, I don't mean to be unkind, but the explosion of certificates in schools is quite disturbing. Children shouldn't be given a certificate for participating in something they've enjoyed and which other people have organised for them. Wouldn't it make more sense to give a certificate to the people who organised it? Why do you want to give them a certificate? I think they will all know that they took part.

    Hi
    we have themed our last 2 sports days in EYFS. We had a pirate one whereby we dressed as pirates and showed the parents a range of skills eg walking the plank, peg leg race (hopping etc) . Each child had their own pirate map with 6 circles on each time they had a go they got a pirtate sticker to go on it . We rotated round 6 activities . At the end we opened the treasure box which contained our home made pirate buns and fruit shoots and we gave the certificates out in front of the parents. Some parents put the certificates in the learning journey files , I think certificates are a great idea ,
