At Meadow Green Primary School, we actively promote school sport by helping every child develop their sporting skills and talents both inside and outside of school. Children are encouraged to undertake a range of sports and activities as a part of a healthy lifestyle and this is strongly supported by our parents.
We involve children in inter-house competitions (Level 1) and look for opportunities to enable as many children as possible to represent their school in inter-school (Level 2) championships and competitions. We have cross border associations with Birmingham Primary sports partnership, as well as within our immediate district. Due to exposure at these range of inter-school events many pupils have been signposted to sports clubs to continue their development.
Many of our children have represented Bromsgrove and Redditch in inter-area competitions and in the Worcester County Games (Level 3)
On Friday 25th January a sports team of girls attended the Sportshall athletics at Arrowvale School. It is always a tricky competition as it is a Year 6 competition and often we take some Year 5s. This year we took 5 children (who have never represented the school) along with 8 others. The children represented the school magnificently and we were placed 4th overall just missing out on a bronze medal. This is one of our best results at the competition and we are hoping the boys will do equally as well in their event on Friday 15th February.
The second of the cross country races took place Monday 1st October. We took a slightly different team and still had the same great results. Kaelen gained his second gold of the season and Ayla got the silver medal in the girls' race. Well done to all that took part. A great start to the sporting year so far.
On Monday 24th September our KS2 cross-country teams competed for the first time this year in the Kings Norton Association of schools series of races. The race was held at Rowheath park in Bournville.
We had some great success; Ayla came 1st in the girls race, Kaelen came 1st in the boys race and we had some notable performances with Izzy finishing 4th and Fran finishing 7th. If we were allowed to enter as a team we would be leading the way in the team rankings. Well done to all children that took part and raced so well.
