What a fantastic whole school sports day we had! It was great to have spectators back watching our children thrive in their sporting environment! The events were all hotly contested and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the athletics activities. Well done to all the children competing and improving their athletic ability; your effort, focus, determination and perseverance was excellent. Congratulations to everyone involved in running, preparing and organising the day, especially Robyn for her most efficient running of the day.

Starting Monday 11th July, Milking Bank will be celebrating the upcoming Commonwealth Games, to be held in Birmingham, within school. Events will include: our fabulous sports day for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, house Kwik cricket and a variety of classroom activities.
We hope that everyone enjoys their week and really get excited about the games.
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.
