Motivating non-sporty children
The Internet makes it easy to glimpse sports days around the world. Try typng "bean bag", "sack race", "relay" and "running race" into a couple of search engines and you should find plenty of links to web pages written by children at home and abroad about their school sports day. These can make fascinating reading, especially pages with web addresses that end in "au", meaning Australia, where sports day is seriously competitive - and doesn't it show?
Meanwhile, www.sportscore.co.uk offers pupils who are keen on sport a chance to put their school fixtures on the map.
