On Wednesday, a group of 11 children traveled to Platt Lane to take part in a festival of activities. There were lots of other schools competing in a number of different activities, including; football skills, balance, running, throwing, skipping and many more.
The children worked incredibly hard and really enjoyed themselves. At the end of the event, we were given the award of the most determined school! Fantastic work guys!
Mr Wheeldon and Miss Gibson took a group of year 3&4 children to represent school in a Kurling competition. This was not an activity that the team had much experience of, but they were determined to give it their best effort. They did so well in fact, that one of our teams won the competition and the other came....2nd!!!
All the children had a fantastic time, represented school fantastically, and all managed to come away with a medal! Well done to all that took part.
On Tuesday we took some footballers from year 1 and 2 to the Etihad Training Complex - home of Manchester City - to compete in a competition alongside many other schools. Our team showed amazing determination and team spirit and managed to reach the semi finals! Well done to every child involved, there were smiles all around!
A lucky group of our school gymnastics team had a visit from one of Britain's greatest gymnasts. Beth Tweddle has competed at 3 Olympic games. She is a multiple World Champion, Commonwealth Gold Medalist, and Olympic Bronze Medalist. The children were able to ask her questions about her career and what inspired her to become an Olympian! Who knows, one of our gymnastics team might go on to represent Britain in the future! Watch this space!
Our Tag Rugby team put in a fantastic performance at their recent competition. They have made brilliant progress and came away with two wins, against William Hulme & St Johns, a draw and a loss. The players were a credit to school and enjoyed every game! Well done!
Well done to our year 6 'Go Ride' finalists who dug deep and earned themselves a silver medal each.
Wilbraham Primary placed second overall out of 135 school across Manchester.
This is an excellent achievement which we are very proud of.
Our year 5 boys footballers have come on leaps and bounds since the beginning of the year.
Today the whole team played amazing football to secure 3rd place overall out of 16 team.
We have noticed a great bond with the boys which helps them when times are tough on the pitch and we hope they can keep this up.
Last week a group of year 6 students got the opportunity to watch some world class sport. They attended the Manchester Velodrome, where they were able to watch the British Track Cycling Championships! The cyclist included a number of Olympic and Paralympic participants!
We were treated to a very special visit from some of Manchester City's brightest future talents! They spent the afternoon reading with Year 2. Joining in with Year 3's PE Lesson. And finally, Year 4 and Year 6 were able to ask some of the future stars questions during an assembly, to find out about their success, and what it takes to become a professional footballer. We were given a signed shirt to keep, so keep a look out in years to come! They might well be the stars of the future!
