Robyn, Miss Mysk, and a team of 10 children from Year 2 travelled to Ellowes Sports College to compete in the Dudley Schools' Multi-Skills Competition. The competition was a Round-Robin style event, with each team completing 8 different activities. The children had a chance to practise each activity before the competition began. The children were so excited to put their skills to the test. After our rotation, competing against 8 other local schools, we were ready to hear the final results. Milking Bank finished 3rd overall - an amazing achievement! A huge well done to all the children involved, whose attitudes were excellent throughout!
Robyn, Miss Bodman and a team of 12 children from years 5 & 6 travelled to Ellowes Sports College to compete in the Dudley Schools' Indoor Athletics event. After some practise in school, the team were excited to finally be competing against 11 other local schools!
