Year 6 Quad Kids Athletics Competition
On the 21st of June Miss Robinson and Mr Woodward selected Our Year 6 team to take part in the Quad kids Athletics Competition at Harvey Hadden Athletics Stadium. The team participated in different running, throwing, and jumping events. Milford had several good finishes in the track races, particularly the 400m where we had been practicing pacing during our P.E lessons. All children performed well, and we should be proud of where we finished considering how challenging it was. This was a super experience for the whole squad.
Year 4 This Girl Can
On the 16th of June Miss Robinson and Mr Woodward took 8 children to a This Girl Can Festival. During the festival they were learning how to play different games such as Kurling, Dodgeball, Athletics and Team building. Milford where outstanding and showed great skills throughout the afternoon. A special mention to Silver showing determination throughout the afternoon. The Milford children behaved very well and were a credit to our school.
‘Go for Gold’ Fun Run
Tuesday the 14th of June one team of fourteen children from The Milford Academy were selected to represent the school at the Nottingham City 'Go for Gold Fun Run’ festival. The children were in for an exciting, fun afternoon, with each child taking part in a 1000m lap run.
Each child would receive a reward for every 1000m they completed on the day.
1000m = Bronze wrist band
2000m = Silver wrist band
3000m = Gold wrist band
Every 1000m after 3000m = Sticker
The afternoon was super-hot, to which children had to push that much harder to complete the laps they were on. A long afternoon of hard work finally came to an end, the children could finally enjoy a rest and water!
Every single child who represented The Milford Academy received GOLD! All fourteen children received their gold wrist bands which was such a fantastic achievement. Even Mr Woodward and Mrs Walker-Jones got theirs too.
