Year 6 School Games Day

It’s that time of year again when our year 6’s are tasked with the planning and management of our School Games Day.

It not only tests their leadership skills but also allows the rest of the school to participate and enjoy a variety of sports that form a part of the Telford & Wrekin School Games.  This is also a requirement of the School Games Gold Sports Award.

Our four house teams were spilt into KS1 and KS2 groups before heading off with their respective year 6 leaders to enjoy some archery, Jamaican cricket/kwik cricket, football and dodgeball.

The scores for each match or round were then collated and verified again by a group of year 6s. The winning house will be announced before the end of term….sorry to keep you in suspense.

A huge well done to our year 6 team for their efforts today and to the rest of the school who demonstrated great team work and sportsmanship!

Primary County Finals – New Age Kurling Team

On Tuesday four of our year six pupils represented Tibberton Primary School at the Primary County Finals competing in the New Age Kurling tournament. They qualified for the final earlier this year, which was an amazing achievement in itself.

They then went on to finish in eighth place out of eleven other schools! As ever, their behaviour was impeccable and sportsmanship, tremendous. So much so, together with the other schools in the Burton Borough School Games area team, won the “Spirit of the Games Award”.

To gain the award, all teams at each event voted for the area team that had shown some or all of these values, determination, teamwork, honesty, respect and self-belief. All the votes were then added together for the overall winner.

Our team even managed to get a photo with Danielle Brown MBE, Paralympic gold medalist (archery), which finished the day off very nicely.

Great team work Tibberton.
