Last night, Year 3 and 4 tennis team took part at the Year 3/4 Tennis Festival at Stony Stratford Tennis Centre.
The children played really well in their first festival and came 4th in their group. We are so proud of them! It was so lovely to see our young sports participants with such determination, resilience and amazing sportsmanship. Well done!
Today, after school, we participated in the tug of war festival at Leon school.
The children pulled and tugged with all their might and competed really well! In the small schools competition Great Linford Primary school came first! Each child won a gold medal and were exceptionally happy knowing that they are the best small school for Tug of War in Milton Keynes.
Due to our win, we then went in the Championship Competition to win the cup. This was a lot harder. We did our very best despite the rope burnt hands and came 4th. Although we just missed a second medal, we are now the 4th best for Tug of war in the whole of MK!
The children were so well behaved and their competitive spirit mixed with their sportsmanship was great. We are very proud of them. Thank you so much to all the children, parents and staff who supported the event.
A great achievement for our school!
Last night our amazing netball team dedicated two hours to go and compete at the Netball Finals at Shenley Brook End Secondary School.
They fought amazingly, showed amazing team work and finished 9th overall meaning that Great Linford is the 9th best for Netball in Milton Keynes! This is a fantastic achievement for the school and we are all so proud of the children. Thank you to all the staff who helped to make this possible and to our amazing team for being brilliant and missing their disco to compete!
Have a look...
The children in years 2, 3 4 and 6 had a fantastic opportunity this week to participate in a new Olympic sport which is debuting at next years Olympic games in Tokyo. Years 2 and 3 had a workshop in scootering (yes I do believe this is the technical term!) and years 4 and 6 had a workshop in skateboarding!
The children loved it and were even more inspired when they found out one of the best athletes for Great Britain who will be competing in the next Olympics is only 10 years old! So get out your scooters and skateboards and get practising as you could be the next Olympic athlete!
Have a look at how we did...
On Wednesday, 6 year 6 girls represented Great Linford at the Netball Festival. The girls were fantastic, showed amazing sportsmanship and were a great team together. Due to this... we came joint first but second on a count back at the festival! This means that they have qualified in the Netball Finals on Tuesday. Well done to the team and to the staff behind the team! Watch this space and we will update you on how they get on, on Tuesday!
A huge thank you to Super Star Sport for coming in today and teaching KS2 all about Women in Sport.
We started the day with an assembly learning about equality in sport and the current issues for athletes relating to gender. We then challenged the stereotypes of 'girls' and 'boys' sports.
We then had workshops throughout the day to promote women's participation in sport. The girls had workshops in football- and learnt that girls are good at football! The boys learnt about the 'She Believes Cup' and learnt about what the England Ladies managed to achieve.
We had a great day... take a look...
Our fantastic new Sports Ambassadors participated in the Year 5 and 6 Dodgeball Festival at Shenley Brook End Secondary School this week.
The children battled well, came up with some great tactics and dodged lots of balls! The children did amazingly well and came third overall! We are so proud of you!
Thank you to the staff and parents who came and supported. We definitely had the best cheerleading squad!
A huge congratulations to Alex (Yr 4) and Betsaleel (Yr 6) for representing the school at the Athletics finals today.
Making the finals puts them in the top 10 children in the whole of Milton Keynes.
Both boys showed their determination and put in a huge amount of effort. Well done!
The Girls football team finished their final matches at the Bushfield tournament with games against Two Mile Ash and Oxley Park. The girls played fantastically well. Due to a few missing team members, we borrowed some players from another team and the girls did well to work with their new team mates. Unfortunately the results did not go in our favour, with a loss against TMA and a draw against Oxley.
Well done to everyone who has taken part in the tournament. I hope you have had as much fun as I have.
The boy's football team managed a last minute victory over Emerson Valley School last week in a close fought game. After taking the early lead, the boy's let in a last minute goal to make it 2-2. Not deterred, they rallied together and went straight up the other end and scored a fantastic goal to finish the match 3-2 victors.
A huge congratulations to all of the team and particularly our man of the match, Betsaleel (Year 6).
