Wow what a day! Last week we took a small group of year 1 boys to The Cliff- where Manchester United used to train! They played in their first ever football competition and did really well to finish third in their group! This was a first footballing experience for all of these boys and they loved it and made us all so proud! Well done Firas, Adam, Okwidilli, Waseem, Shahan and Ibrahim!
This week some girls from year 3 and 4 went to The Cliff, former training ground of Manchester United, and played 4 more games in their league! What a day it was as our girls won 2 drew 1 and lost the last one 1-0. They were fantastic and are well in with a shout of becoming champions at the end of the year! Well done to Lujaynah, Tia, Asnat, Tasnim, Khushi, Tamia, Marianne and Nancy!
We took some year 3 and 4 boys to Manchester United’s Cliff training ground this week, for the second round of fixtures in the league. They were amazing! Winning 4 games, drawing one and losing just the one game, by one goal! If we keep this up we have a real chance of winning the entire league by the end of the year. Well done Malik, Abdulmalik, Owais, Jehad, Adam, Murtaza, Daniel and Kaleb!
We recently took some children to Levenshulme High School for the yearly New Age Kurling competition. Wilbraham were the winners last year and followed that up by winning again this year! Well done to Lewis, Archeet, Huda and Ebtehal - many of whom were experiencing their first competition out of school for Wilbraham. Huda even won a badge for showing tremendous passion! We now advance to the finals later in the year. Well done Wilbraham!
Our new team of leaders recently attended their introduction, and training, event for this years leadership academy. They learnt about what it takes to be a leader and what they will be expected to do throughout the year. They discusses their plans for the year and what they might need to do in order to achieve this. They were also lucky enough to have a tour around the Manchester United Museum, which is packed full of trophies and interesting memorabilia. We are looking forward to bringing their ideas to life during the year!
Our amazing year 5/6 girls football team, who have already won every game they have competed in this season, attended a Futsal tournament held at Platt Lane Leisure Complex. Needless to say, they went all the way to the final, which went all the way to a penalty shoot out! Through some fantastic penalties and some excellent goalkeeping from Noor Adam (who saved two penalties) we won the tournament and brought a beautiful trophy back to school! Well done to Aala, Amel, Holly, Noor, Nur, Scarlett, Shatoo and Tianna!
We took a very inexperienced tag rugby team to their first ever tournament a few weeks ago. The team were super enthusiastic and picked up the sport very quickly. We could see a great improvement each game and they really enjoyed themselves. They showed incredible teamwork and were a credit to the school.
Earlier this half term, 4 children represented school at the cross country competition. Over 60 children took part in both the boys and girls races. This meant that the level of competition was very high. Our children put in a fantastic effort with all of them finishing in the top half of each race. Raf even managed to finish in the top 10! Well done to Jeremiah, Raf, Tianna and Holly.
