Year 5/6 Sportshall Athletics
After a successful year last year in Sportshall Athletics the children were excited and eager to get the competition underway. We travelled to The Farnborough Academy where there were seven schools in total competing for a top two finish to go through to the semi-finals. The children performed well in their track and field events with 1st and 2nd place finishes. The competition was tough with each race finishing right on the line to determine 1st and 2nd place. After an afternoon of great competition the results were announced. Milford came a close 2nd with an overall score of 268 points! We are already training for the semi-finals on Wednesday 28th November.

Year 5/6 Mini Football Tournament
A group of children from Year 5 and 6 took part in a mini football tournament at The Farnborough Academy. The children played against three other schools in a round robin competition. The team played really well, especially as this was the first time some of the children had ever played in a football match. Each game went down to the wire with only a goal deciding the outcome. The children worked hard, played well as a team and showed the Milford attitude. The results were in; the team drew two games and lost one game. We are really pleased the children had such a good time!

Due to a fantastic start Milford had more possession on the ball in the first half keeping the score line 0-0. In the second, half-High bank scored one goal lead with another goal. After 5 minutes, Milford put the pressure on High bank making the score line 2-1. Unfortunately, we did not get the result we wanted however, the boys played a great game. Well done boys.

KS2 Cross Country Relay
On Wednesday 3rd October we went on our first sporting event of the year. Some of our Year, 5 and 6 children went to Colwick Park to race against 22 other schools across Nottingham. We took 12 children, a girls team and 2 boys teams consisting of 4 children in each team. Each athlete had to run around the lake (approx. 1500m) with a baton that was then passed onto the next athlete. The final member of the team wore a vest to indicate that they were the last athlete running so when they crossed the finish line the time was recorded.
The girls raced first, followed by the boys. The 4 girls finished their race in 1st position and a time of 22 minutes beating 2nd place by 30 seconds! The girls ran their hearts out and put in an unbelievable performance to achieve this time! The boys were up next, as there were 2 boys teams it made them more competitive as both teams wanted to beat each other. One team finished 5th and the other team finished 12th out of 22 other schools. The boys battled incredibly well with places changing throughout the race.
A great start to the year! Well done!

KS2 Athletics Final
After the children’s recent success, we were through to the Athletics County Final. This was a first for Milford. There were 8 teams in total out of 160 overall in Nottingham. We were heading in with no expectations. We knew this would be a tough challenge however, our children rose to the challenge beating their personal times. The children did extremely well fighting for the top 3, when the results came in, it was too close to call. Overall we came 4th missing out on a medal with only 10 points between us and 3rd place. This was our last event of the school year and the children did amazingly well!

KS2 Athletics Finals
After a successful semi-final, it was now time for the qualifying team to represent the school in the final at Harvey Hadden. All athletes competed in a 50m sprint, 400m run, vortex howler throw and a standing long jump. There were 11 teams in total and this time the competition was at its very best. Each race had two heats, this meant that the children didn’t know how well they were doing overall. This gave them even more grit and determination to push harder at each event.
All the children achieved at least one personal best in their event from the last competition. Two of our athletes came in the top 3 for their individual performance. One child received a Bronze medal and the other achieved a Silver medal. After the long wait the results were in…
Milford Academy came 1st!
Another amazing achievement from our athletes. The sports team are so proud of all your hard work, resilience and dedication. We will go through to the County Finals on Friday 6th July.

Year 3/4 Sportshall County Finals
After the children’s recent success, we were through to the Sportshall County Finals. As this was a first for Milford, we were heading into the unknown. As we knew the competition would be very tough, we went to try our best and enjoy the occasion without any expectations. However, we made a fantastic start and after a few events we knew we had a chance to compete for a medal. Some of the children improved their times on the day giving us an even better chance of a top 3 finish. When the results were announced, we were absolutely thrilled to receive a silver medal – placing us second in the whole of Nottinghamshire for Sportshall Athletics! This season has proved to the children how hard work can pay off. Well done again to everyone who competed!

KS2 Table Tennis Tournament
More medals for Milford at the City Table Tennis event with a Silver and Bronze for the A and B teams. The winners, Middleton, proved just too strong on the day but all the players played well and improved during the competition. Nerves were an issue at the start but all our players played some great shots and had some great games and some of them will be back to go for Gold next year. Well done to the unbeaten Grace and the rest of the players.
On Thursday 19th April the boys football team played Highbank Primary School in the last game of the league. Due to a poor start, we went 2-0 down in the first half. However, the boys came out in the second half and played amazingly well due to us passing the ball more accurately and a much better defence. We conceded no goals in the second half and the boys drew level, 2-2. We were very pleased to come away with a point as Highbank are one of the best teams in the league. Well done boys. A super season!

Cross Country Relays
As our Year 5s & 6s were unavailable for this event eight Year 4s bravely took their place. We arrived at Colwick Park a little apprehensive about the upcoming race against older children. Teams consisted of 4 athletes. Each athlete had to run around the lake (approx 1500m) with a baton that was then passed onto the next athlete in the team. The final athlete wore a vest signalling they were the fourth and final athlete and the time was recorded as they crossed the finish line.
A strong finish!
The girls team raced first competing against 30 other schools, followed by the boys team. They did themselves proud and raced their hearts out and they put in tremendous effort to finish 9th and 11th overall. An unbelieveable performance!
A fantastic team effort!

Year 4 Table Tennis Festival
Eight of our young table tennis players attended an extended coaching session at The Farnborough Academy. The children really enjoyed themselves learning new skills and playing some games with children from Glapton. They particularly enjoyed being coached by some ex-Milford pupils who helped out on the day. The Farnborough Academy is the best secondary school for table tennis in the city and they are confident that the production and line of talent from Milford is going to continue. Many of the children were also delighted with their first table tennis medal. Hopefully it will be the first of many!

Year 4/5 Athletics Finals
We are nearing the end of a very exciting and successful Sports season. Our latest event saw the children competing in another final at Harvey Hadden Stadium.

The children put in another fantastic performance, despite the rain, coming 6th overall. Whilst the children were disappointed they must remember that there are over 70 schools in Nottingham and they finished in the top 7 which is an amazing achievement!
We will continue to practise and improve and come back fighting!

KS2 Swimming Gala
A young, inexperienced and nervous group of swimmers attended our first City Swimming Gala on Wednesday at the recently refurbished Harvey Haddon swimming pool. It was a lot of fun and while the team came 11th out of the 12 participating schools there was no lack of effort and determination. All of the team came from Year 4 & 5 and can come back next year physically stronger and with the technique to swim even faster. A huge well done to the Parents and Carers who take their children to private swimming lessons. These lessons are not cheap but they make a massive difference to child confidence and safety in the water. Next year we will be moving up that table and well done again to the children who took part.
