Inspiring the future

Rainbow Games

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 crisis we are missing yet another prominent aspect in our school calendar, Sports Day. This year we have therefore decided to hold a Virtual Home and School Sports Day on what would have been our annual Sports Day on Thursday 25th June in the format of “The Rainbow Games.”

The Rainbow games are built on the core values that underpin the importance of how we approach each challenge in the games and in our everyday life. These values also reflect our usual School Games Values of determination, self-belief, honesty, respect, team-work and passion.


Children can participate in one challenge per day. Each of the activities are differentiated and can be played at home or at school. Other household members are also encouraged to join in and play.

Many of the items you can find around your home and many of the activities use the same items.

What you will need;

Twister – 10 items e.g. rolled socks or cones, a timer

Star Challenge – 6 markers, a timer

Jump my height – a marker, a start line

Mighty Memory – 15 random items e.g. spoon, small toy, an apple, a phone…

Flying Hight – 10 items, 2 pillows or base stations (clouds), a start line and a timer

Pot of Gold – 1 pair of rolled up socks or small ball, 1 dressing gown tie or hoop, 1 x pillow

Run the Rainbow – 7 items (1 for each colour of the rainbow) 1 start marker, a timer

Details of how to complete each challenge and the score sheet have been sent out via email. Completed score sheets can be sent to Mrs Hunt, via a scanned or a photo of the score sheet to or drop off in the lobby at school. Please make sure your child’s name and team name is included on the sheet. Certificates will follow. Please send photos of children completing the challenges to

Come on Caythorpe, this is something that we can do apart but together.
