For decades, parents have enjoyed cheering on their young children in the traditional egg and spoon race on school sports' days.
The popular contest in primary schools across the country looked in danger of being axed this summer term due to Covid.
However, the Department for Education has stepped in to save this event as well as sprints and relays by reassuring headteachers about fixtures.
In a new blog, it says school sports' days can go ahead and parents may also be invited to watch them - but they must be socially distanced into separate groups of 30 people.
Nutritionist shares her delicious Easter egg nest recipe
A top Australian nutritionist has revealed how to make the most delicious Easter egg nests this weekend - and her recipe is super easy to follow. Jessica Sepel, from Sydney, made chocolate and peanut butter flavoured egg nests in the lead-up to the long weekend - and shared her recipe with adoring fans.The nests each hold three eggs of the builder's choice and take 45 minutes to set in the fridge once they have been put together.
The blog says: 'Many schools will have broken up for the summer holidays by the time national restrictions ease on 19 July.
'This means that while schools and colleges will be able to hold the traditional end of term sports day, they may be slightly different than in previous years for both pupils and their parents.'
Clarifying the position on school sports' days, the DfE confirms they can 'go ahead in line with existing restrictions such as maintaining class or year-group bubbles and regular cleaning of sports equipment'.
It also addresses the presence of parents and families in the blog post, which was published on the DfE's Education Hub - a site for teachers, parents and pupils.
'It's up to schools to risk assess their sports day plans and decide if it is appropriate to invite spectators,' the DfE says.
The Egg Diet Might Work, But You’ll Likely Crack
Of all the dumb diets out there, this one is only kind of dumbThat's largely because they're high in protein, but also choline, a brain-aiding nutrient found in the yolk (you are eating the whole egg, right?).
'Any spectators must stick to social distancing requirements and legal gathering limits where, outdoors, spectators can gather in separate groups of up to 30.
'This means, dependent on the size of the area available, multiple groups of 30 could theoretically attend events as long as there is no mixing between groups at any stage.'
Professor Alan Smithers, director of the Centre for Education and Employment Research at Buckingham University, yesterday welcomed the development.
He said: 'Amongst all that has been lost through Covid, it's reassuring to know that school sports' days can go ahead.
'Parents will be very happy to hear that they can enjoy the traditional egg and spoon race with their children, along with all the other popular races.'
Women are sharing reasons for freezing their eggs .
There's been a 20% surge in egg freezing since the first lockdown'The last year-and-a-half of my relationship has been spent in lockdown, which has curtailed a huge number of the life experiences that my partner and I wanted to do together,' she says. 'We want to travel and enjoy our time together before we change our lives by having children.
