Athletics at Longford Park

Year 6 had a terrific time at Trafford Athletics Club in Longford Park on Wednesday. We thought you would like to see the pictures of our success.

Cricket Club Letter

Due to popular demand, we will be running a cricket club after school for Years 5 and 6, until the end of the school year.

Cricket is a rapidly gaining popularity Sport in Primary Schools, and has always been popular at Manley Park. It is a great way for children to develop socially and learn skills that can be transferred to other sports, the classroom, and beyond! We wish to build a team of players to compete with other Manchester Primary Schools during these up and coming summer months.

The sessions will be priced at £1, which will cover the cost to school for things such as floodlights to the area and travel to play other schools; the staff are very kindly providing their time for free.

The children must wear shorts/tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt/tracksuit top, trainers and bring a drink with them on the day.

There is a maximum of 25 spaces and will be first come first served with payment. There are 9 weeks until the end of May so payment will be £9 initially. This will be non-refundable. If more than 2 sessions are missed then the child will be removed from the group, thereby ensuring that we have a full complement for the team to be able to enter the competitions.

Any children who do not make the first 25 spaces will be placed on a waiting list and notified when a place becomes available.

The club will commence on Tuesday, 14th March 2017 at 3:30pm-4:30pm, and will take place every Tuesday during term time. Please ensure your child is picked up promptly at 4:30pm to avoid any unnecessary distress.

1000km Challenge

This year the children of year 6 decided to raise the money for their reward trip by taking part in the 1000km challenge. This involved walking from the school to Turnmoss Wood, where a 500 metre track was set up for the children and adults to use to build up the distance. It worked out that with the walk to Turmoss and back included everyone needed to do 20-23 laps (10-11.5km) each. Everyone did this and really enjoyed themselves. On the walk back year 6 stopped and played a game of 30-a-side rounders. Below are the photos from the day.
