Vale Tag Rugby Competition
Last term, seven children in Year 5 competed in the Vale Tag Rugby competition and came 1st! All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the event and played some really good rugby, plus demonstrating our Millbrook values of co-operation and respect. I would like to also thank Chris Dowling, the PE specialist from King Alfred’s, who had been working alongside this year group leading up to this event. His work with us definitely did not go unnoticed and helped the children to be extremely successful in this event! So a huge well done to the following children: Oliver C, Josh , Elisha P, Charlie S, Josh A, Logan R, Luke C and Emma C, Lily B, Lauren P, Grace G and James C. These children are going through to the next round which is ‘The Chairman’s Cup’ that is taking place in May, where they will be competing against any Primary school in Oxfordshire. This is a fantastic achievement and we wish this team all the very best!
Wantage Cluster Swimming Competition
Earlier on in the term, eight children from Years 5 and 6 competed in a swimming competition against other schools in Oxfordshire. Both teams, the girls and the boys team, swam very well and all of them swam both strokes they enjoyed, but also strokes that they found a challenge! Overall, the Boys team came 5th (Frazer D, Jamie B, Oliver C and Charlie S) and the Girls team came 2nd (Erin M, Lauren P, Eliza H and Mally B). The girls team, made it through to the next round which was the Vale round, held at Radley. The girls swam exceptionally well and came a very well deserved 5th out of the ten teams that competed. So a huge well done to Erin M, Lauren P, Eliza H and Jessica B for this fantastic achievement!
Wantage Sportshall Athletics
Last week, seventeen children from Years 5 and 6 competed in the Wantage cluster of the sportshall athletics. The children chose two track and two field events that they would like to compete in on the day and went along to this fantastic sporting event. Both the boys team and the girls team did brilliantly well, coming 1st for their cluster on the day, and overall scored a magnificent 498 points which ranked them 2nd overall in the competition! So a massive congratulations to Max P, Oliver C, Jamie B, Kian W, Will V, Logan R, Kai K, Charlie B, Erin M, Freya K, LouLou P, Erika A, Emma C, Lily B, Lauren P, Georgia D, Mally B. These children have made it through to the Oxfordhsire County Finals which is taking place on Tuesday 4th April. We wish you all the very best!
