National School Sports Week 2021
From Saturday 19th June to Friday 25th June the school will be involved in this national school sports scheme run by the Youth Sports Trust and this year's theme is together again. We will be providing the children in school with a variety of socially distanced sports activities and challenges to improve their resilience, confidence, wellbeing and fitness throughout the week.
Year Six will be taking part in outdoor adventure activities throughout the week and enjoying their time doing outdoor adventure challenges.
In school we will be continuing with our P.E lessons and Active Mile activities. At break time the Sports Reps will be devising mini challenges for each year group to test themselves on. At lunch time the lunch time supervisors will be running a rotation of sporting activities for the children to try. The Sports Reps will oversee these activities. Each year group will also have the chance to choose a sporting star of the week.
We have provided a few ‘at home fitness challenges’ and website links for activities to try on top of the many possible sports the children will do in school, not just this week but in the future too. We hope that everyone has a brilliant week enjoying sports and being active.

Cricket coaching sessions with Worcestershire Cricket Club
Hit them for six but don't get out by a duck!
This term some of our children are having the opportunity to be taught cricket by a coach from Worcestershire Country Cricket Club. Nick Jones, alongside our sports coach Robyn, will be teaching some children in Year 3, Year 4 and Year 6 cricket skills. These sessions continue our long standing involvement with Worcestershire County Cricket and hopefully from these lessons we will develop talented cricketers of the future just like Olly Westbury, a past pupil, who now plays for the county.
Red Nose Day Activities
On Thursday 18th March, in preparation for Red Nose Day, Milking Bank hosted its own Red Nose Day themed races in year group bubbles. These races, organised by our sports coach Robyn, involved the children moving through an own obstacle course while holding a red ball on a spoon (some year groups even did it while blindfolded).
The children had a fun time working together and cheering each other on all in aid of Red Nose Day. Thank you to everyone who took part and especially Robyn for organising the event.
On Friday 13th November, our school celebrated and raised money for the charity Children In Need. Both the children and teachers came to school wearing brightly coloured clothes to mirror the charity focus of rainbow colours. During the day the children took part in the live broadcast of Joe Wicks' epic 24 hour fitness challenge. We willed him over the finish line by taking part in the end of his fitness session in our classrooms. The children's brightly coloured clothes help to lift everyone's spirits and make the day fun.
