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).
The girls took part in their first competitive football matches in more than 4 years at Bushfield school last night. The three, 15 minute, games took place on a cold and damp evening. After taking a while to get going, the girls started working as a team fantastically well and didn't give up. They represented our school beautifully and should be extremely proud of themselves. Next week there will be three more games and will give the girls another opportunity to practise the skills they have learnt in PE.
Our "lady" of the match was Zahara who was fearless in goal and had a showed a great eye for the ball.
Well done to our year 6 team: Zahara, Lolade, Rudy, Millie, Neave, Tayla and Chantelle.
On Thursday 30th November, the Year 6 girls netball team took part in an Aspire Netball competition against St Monica's and Giffard Park schools. It was the first competitive game that any of the girls had played and they did extremely well. All of the girls had a fantastic time, despite the cold weather, and are looking forward to the next matches in the New Year.
Rosie, our Year 6 Sports Ambassador said, ' It was fun but it was really chilly. I can't wait to play again.'
