School Sports

 Sept 2017 -- Mundella Primary are awarded the School Games Gold Mark for the second year in a row, this award notes the engagement in school games/PE and the competitive opportunities given to children. Showing active links with other sporting communities.

What a fantastic Sporting year we have had at Mundella Primary!!

We became National Champions at Gymnastics in 2 different School Gymnastics competitions. 
the 1st was the Team Milano Trio competition, winning the boys and mixed Yorkshire event in Sheffield and going on to represent Yorkshire at the National finals in Stoke. The mixed team became runners up, with Jess R attaining top overall score and the boys team Beat all the other regions to become GB national winners. An Amazing effort by all.

We then went to compete at the Yorkshire floor and vault competition in Hull. The boys and mixed team won and went on to represent Yorkshire again in the F & V National Finals in Stoke. This time with even more competition the Mixed team exceeded themselves and won,  becoming GB National Winners. It is the 1st time in 17 years since a Yorkshire Primary team won at the Nationals, not sure how long since a Sheffield team won!!

We had a fabulous School games sports day at the EIS in Sheffield, with the whole school taking part in various field events and track events, the KS1 trophy was won by Graves House and the KS2 trophy was won by Mundella House

A snapshot of our other events include - Table Tennis event, taking 4 teams of boys ans girls - with Jess K winning this Yorks event in Sheffield and representing Yorkshire at the National Finals. 

In X-Country- Saturdays we had 2 sisters, Bobbie and Issy W who are so dedicated they ran every race (and some others attending v occasionally). Issy became the Y4 girls overall winner, winning nearly every race, she also won the Sheffield Y4 Girls open x-country race at Graves Park. 

In Athletics, after taking 20 children to the athletics 7 children reached the City finals and all either won or placed in their events. So Grace J became Sheffield champion at Race Walking.  

Sportshall Athletics-we won our cluster and then reached the city Finals, a great team effort. 

Cheerleading is a fairly new event, in which we enter a large mixed team, the boys think it’s great and we have reached the South Yorkshire Finals 3 years in a row, coming a very close runners up this year. 

A new sport for us this year was hockey with the Y4 group, again entering multiple mixed teams, the children loved it and reached the South Yorkshire Finals. 

The Y3/4 Gymnastics team won the Sheffield key steps heats and progressed to the SY Finals which they went on to Win, fabulous teamwork.

 We always enter the Sheffield swimming gala and were runners up in previous years but for the majority of the time finishing in one of the top 5 places in A Division for over 10 years. 

We have had multiple teams of Y3-6 entering and competing well in Tennis, cricket and orienteering. We also had this year Cycling speedway, thanks to Craig Malkin, a new one for us, cycling with no brakes! I was a bit apprehensive with this but it turned out ok and a few children have taken it up in their own time, which is what we want. We of course enter lots of football teams for boys and girls alike, always performing with vigor and determination.

Orienteering Y4-6
We took part in an Orienteering competition, taking 2 teams of girls and 2 teams of boys. It was held at Westfield Sports College, which was a very large area to cover. The children were given an orienteering map and had to work in teams to go and collect information from the flag points and bring it back to the desk ready for the next team member to go. There were nearly 100 teams taking part and all of the children did extremely well. The boys teams came a very respectable 11th in their categories and the Y5/6 girls team came 5th, just missing out on getting to the South Yorkshire finals. The Y4 girls (Hetty, Eva, Hannah M, Jess) team came a fabulous 1st place, qualifying for the South Yorkshire Finals on Tuesday 28 June at Cannon Hall. Congratulations and Good luck for the finals
