Recent Sporting Events

Sports for Champions           

On the Thursday 28th of February, Millbrook Primary School welcomed a very special visitor, 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games hopeful Megan Fletcher. She competes professionally in Judoka (Judo). Megan was representing Sports For Champions who help athletes raise funding to compete at the top level. As part of this they offer the opportunity to Primary schools across the country to be visited by professional athletes from a wide range of different sports with the aim to “Inspire children of today… To be champions of tomorrow.”

Before half term the children in Years 1—6 were set a challenge to collect as many sponsors as  possible. They were sponsored to complete a challenging circuit training session set by Megan. The children all played their part working as hard as they possibly could on the day and all with a massive smile on their faces! Megan did say that every single child that took part in the circuit training was a credit to Millbrook Primary School.

Once all the classes had successfully completed the circuit training they gathered in the hall for a special assembly. Megan gave the children an insight into her life as a professional athlete, the training she does, the food she eats and she even brought in her 2014 Commonwealth gold medal for everyone to see. The stand out part of the assembly was the demonstrations and the chance to have a go. One child even got the chance to “Judo throw” a teacher. (Something they won’t forget in a long time!)  After the assembly the children that had raised the most money stayed behind to have a signed picture taken with Megan, they were even lucky enough to wear her Commonwealth Gold medal.

Thank you to everyone who kindly raised sponsorship money. With your help Millbrook raised a massive £1,198.50, part of which will support Megan in her bid to compete at the Olympics and several hundred pounds which will be used by the school to help buy new sports and PE equipment.IMG_0172

 

 

 

 

 

 

In The Box Sports Coaching hosted their Christmas Multi Sports Holiday Camp at Millbrook Primary school. It was brilliant to see so many returning faces from the October course as well as some first timers.

Across the week the children took part is a wide variety of different sports ranging from Tag Rugby, Hockey, Dodgeball, Parkour and American football just to name a few. All of those who attended had a fantastic time and thoroughly deserved their In The Box medals at the end of the week.

The dates for our next Multi Sports Camp are as follows

Week 1 – 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th April

Week 2 – 15th,16th,17th,18th April

Thank you from all the staff at In The Box Sports Coaching, we hope to see you on one of our courses in the future.

    • Millbrook Year 1 and 2 children represented the school in a football tournament against our LACT schools on Friday 23rd November.  The team were superb and won the final!  Every squad member played a game and were instrumental in the success of the team.  Lets hope they continue their love of the sport outside of school as well!

Millbrook children and families took part in an after school fun-run in the autumn sun to celebrate the end of term 1. Runners were encouraged around the course by year six pacers and marshals. On course there was a year 6 band drumming to keep people going. Many families also enjoyed a post-run drink and cake – kindly provided by the children. Thanks to all who joined us!
