Year 6 Young Leaders
The Y6 pupils showed great leadership skills when they helped run the KS1 Indoor Athletics competition in March. They showed amazing confidence and leadership assisting with the running of each part of the competition; warming the children up, demonstrating the activities, organising the teams, recording scores and timing where needed. The competition would not have been able to be run without their input. Many thanks for all your help!
L3 County Finals
We had 3 runners from Criftins who represented our North Shropshire District in the County Finals at Shrewsbury Sports Village. Unfortunately, due to the bad weather and the waterlogged Cross Country course this part of the competition had had to be postponed and the runners had to compete on the cycle track as the weather was still poor. However, the children were ready to run their best and they did just that with them all individually finishing in 5th place (out of the whole of North Shropshire) in their respective races. What an amazing result!
This is a wonderful competition for the younger children to be able to compete in – there are not very many that we can go to so we like to get the KS1 children to as many as possible. The team of 8 children trained incredibly hard – they have to remember a floor and a bench routine and perform in front of judges and other competitors which is a huge feat when you are only 6 years old! We finished in 3rd place which was brilliant!
L2 Quicksticks Hockey Competition
We went to Ellesmere College on a beautiful crisp afternoon to compete in the second round of this competition. We took a squad of 6 with 4 playing at a time which meant that the children had to cover the whole pitch in very fast moving matches. Throughout the match the opposing teams were looking to award medals to those players who demonstrated any of the 6 School Games values: three of our team members were awarded medals for Teamwork, Honesty and Determination.
