Our amazing hockey team had already won one competition meaning they had made it through to the finals! They were held last night, and after some amazing performances we finished in 3rd place for the whole of Manchester!!! The meant that we came away with bronze medals! Our team has only been training together for a few months, so this is an amazing achievement. Finishing 3rd was enough for us to qualify for the Grand Finals which will be held next week! Good luck and well done!
What a fantastic day! Our year 1 boys went to the Manchester United training ground, also known as The Cliff, for a tournament. They managed to win all but one of their games and make it all the way to the final! The boys put so much hard work into the final and eventually won the game 2-1 winning the whole competition and bringing home a lovely, shiny medal each! Well Done boys!
We recently attended a tournament held at the Cliff Training Ground (home of Manchester United F.C). We took a team of boys and girls from Year 5 and 6 who performed amazingly, but were very unfortunate to miss out on a place in the finals. We are very proud of all our young sports men and women in Wilbraham Primary School.
During the last two weeks, we have been competing in a basketball competition held at the Amaechi Centre in Whalley Range - home of the Manchester Magic Basketball Team. Our team was made up of year 4, 5 and 6 children from our weekly basketball club. They were very impressive, despite the very difficult competition, and everybody at Wilbraham Primary School is so proud!
This week Year 6 have been working really hard practising their SATs and enjoying lots of sports. All of the sporting activities were lead by the children themselves! In total, 16 children were trained as Sports Leaders this week, joining many others who already hold the title. They lead activities such as: table tennis, benchball, dodgeball, rounders and golf.
We are immensely proud of our hockey team who attended the Central Quicksticks Hockey League at Trinity High School this week. Amazingly, WE WON!!! We will now advance to the finals! The team, made up of boys and girls from Year 5 and 6, fought hard and played with great determination. Their record was 7 victories and 1 draw, topping the table and winning the league! We will play in the finals later this year.
We took some of our girls, from our weekly football club, to a tournament at the Cliff in Salford, the training centre of Manchester United F.C. They performed really well and earned some positive comments from other coaches and staff of Manchester United. The girls really enjoyed themselves and can’t wait to return.
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!
