Heathfield Primary School pupils in Ayr enjoyed a virtual sports day recently where they tackled lots of different challenges at home.

Although the pupils couldn’t spend sports day doing fun activities together, they all enjoyed setting their own tasks and sharing them with their peers online.

Staff at Heathfield Primary set three different challenges for the kids to do at home and each pupil chose which one they took part in.

The teachers encouraged the kids to spend sports day with their family and even their pets, and send in their fabulous photos to share with everyone.

Well done to all who took part.


Scotland is in lockdown. Shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We're not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Ayr Advertiser, and the vital local news service we've provided since 1803, is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Ayr Advertiser in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you're shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks – and stay safe.
