Summer Term Sports Update

 

What a fantastic few weeks we have just had with our Manorfield sports teams. I am so proud of all the children and their efforts are second to none.

It all started on Monday 15th May when we had three Y3/4 teams and three Y5/6 teams compete in a Quicksticks hockey tournament at Heath Lane Academy. All the teams did us proud with us coming third and fourth respectively.

On the same day, our Y3/4 tennis team and Y5/6 tennis team competed against all the schools in our Family of Schools and they both won! This saw them both through to the next round held on 22nd May at Hinckley Tennis Club. The Y5/6 team battled hard and came a very respectful 5th place. The Y3/4 team blew me away and actually won the whole competition meaning that they now go on to compete in the County finals at Uppingham Tennis Club! What an awesome result!

Also on 22nd May, I took our Y3/4 athletics crew and Y5/6 athletics crew to a Quadkids competition at Heath Lane Academy. The children worked so hard and were so supportive of each other throughout which resulted in us winning both competitions! So now both Quadkids teams go on to the next stage of the competition at Bosworth Academy in June.

With the rest of the Summer term bringing Tri-Golf competitions, Area sports, multiskills festivals, rounders competitions, Sports days and much more, we are sure to have another amazing year of sporting success.

Keep it up Team Manorfield… you are amazing! Miss Smith
